Atlanta Sewer system Sucks mega balls

I had my car parked under in the parking garage, first floor, where I usually park, right next to a drain. Never paid any mind. Tonight it is rainig cats & dogs. The damm drain filled up, the rain water rose & got into my car. Iam so pissed. The rain water was limited to the passenger rear side. The water must have been up at least a foot. Luckily I had a rag & just went to town for an hour draining it out & dried as much as i could. Is the only thing to do now is wait till morning & Dry Vac it out? Iam at work now therefore I cannot do it now. I will be dealing with the Owners of that parking garage, calling facilities. I just moved here from Seattle, they say it rains in seattle. ****, it rains here like I have never seen. Thanks for hearing me out.

Bummer........this is unusual for this much rain in Atlanta. Normally it's fairly dry and water bans are frequent during summer months. Hurricane Dennis left his mark that's for sure. I hope your car cleans up OK. Are those 19" M Parallel replicas? The rear dish looks very wide! Looks great.

YEs they are & believe me, they are great. I truly believe they look much better thean the originals becuase of the deep dish on the rear. The front are a bit deeper than the OEM as well. Woodstock, GA what does your car look like.

I'll get some pics soon. I did alot of mods since I bought it last December like front and rear M-Tech bumpers, 18" M-parallel wheels, lip spoiler. Just been lazy in the picture taking. Where did you get the 19" M Parallels and did you have to roll your fenders and put in M-5 liners to keep your tires from rubbing.
