Stuck at work, these ****ing 9p-7a shifts are so stupid. I've been sitting in the office now for almost 2 hours, waiting for 5:30 to roll around so i can begin my building unlocks and GTFO of here..

Question, do you guys by any chance know which 5 speed transmissions the M44 Z3s got? I'm having a hella hard time finding anything via google..

The rest of Chrysler, on the other hand, hasn't been able to make an even halfway decent vehicle since the late '60s / early '70s. Only exception to that would be the the current Ram (but I'd probably still go for an F150...).

New Vette is out soon, very excited. Current model is pretty old but has everything perfect except the interior. New one should blow minds.

As far as GM interiors, nothing is much better than the new Cadillac interiors with CUE, especially from Ford or dodge.

If I didn't live in boring indiana, I'd own a 90s wrangler. When I'm back in phx I go out to the desert with my stepdad's jeep. It's like my e36 in that its an I6, 5 speed, and raw!

I would normally be able to get it this weekend on my way back, but my car is gonna be so packed, I don't know if I'll have room. I'll give it to you cheap, though. You might have to wait until after christmas break, though.

True, I'm sure the new Vette will be excellent, but you'd need a ZR1 to get anywhere near the new Viper in terms of performance, and GM won't bring a new ZR1 anytime soon, if at all.

Dunno. This new Viper's interior is supposed to be the bee's knees. Seats from the same supplier as Ferrari, etc.

Like $50. Probably won't be able to get it this weekend.

And I thought this was for you! Don't you need wheel bearings?

Ugh, I'm trying to relocate my windshield washer and I can't even get it to power up using all of the stock wiring (it's been disconnected for a while, and some of the wires were cut). No voltage to the pump connector. All fuses are good. I doubt it's the wiper relay since my wipers work perfect. Any ideas guys?

Its not about who's making the components, it's how they're spec'ed and how much they're paying for them

Hids in highs will kill the ballasts with all the flashing

Quite true, but in this case they look great and are made of kevlar, and are supposedly very supportive. Autoblog liked the interior so much, they had this to say about it when comparing the new interior to the old one:

Quote:
The interior's transformation rivals that of raw carbon being compressed into a diamond....it not only smells wonderful, but it is hands-down the nicest interior I've ever seen from a domestic automaker.
Awesome sig photo, btw. That car is so badass.

Thank you sir, I shamelessly stole it from the sale ad.

And that does sound pretty impressive.

There are 3 fuses. I get voltage to 2 when ignition is on, and voltage to the 3rd when wipers are on. I get current in two of them when washer system is active. Car wiring is the worst.
