Hello finally got the headlamp replaced and was wondering what you would recommend as an fast burning spark plug.
also my car is burning oil like crazy and im pretty sure its the piston rings, would you recommend that to be a diy job i could do at home.

oh and the picture isnt too good photobucket didnt let me edit it.

Why would you want a fast burning spark plug? DOn't you want it to burn at the right time?

For piston rings, you may just find it cheaper to get a new engine at that point.


EDIT: For faster burning, try plasma.

Looking good. What settings are you using to take those?

A drop in the ISO and longer shutter time would take a little grain out. Would require a tri-pod though.

I got my tripod for $50 from best buy. Works great and helps a lot with night shots. With stills I drop the ISO as low as it will go (100) and just play with the shutter speed.

Finally took a picture of my full stock alpine beast. I've done a few things like dying all the trim/bumpers black, polishing headlights, and maintenance. Stock ride height makes it look like a tractor though lol.
