At Assateague Island in Maryland, the day after the storm.

I'm not looking forward to slapping a DC license plate on that front bumper.

Mein Auto: Depends
then don't mess up the looks by installing one! Va is like DC in that they require one, but it's very rare to get a ticket and I just consider it the cost of improved cosmetics. Now DC has pissed me off as I've been parked at a meter on the streets and come back to find a DC ticket for no front plate on my car before....in my view since my car isn't registered there they have no business writing me a ticket for it. I refuse to pay it on that basis and they really don't have any leverage over me to get it. Only have one so no threat to boot and most of the time I park in a garage when I'm down there.

Wow, that looks amazing. If I ever have to get an SUV your twin is what I will be looking for.

Did the performance tune make a noticeable difference on it?
