Spare tire for my Mustang. Riding 4 months without one was enough for me.

I gave my car the gift of a full tank of regular. I badly need to get new wiper blades though, and wash it. Only thing I miss about working at the car rental place is free washes and free washer fluid.

Wash and a wax and most likely some caliper paint for the next time I rotate my tires.

Sony BT4100P, KnuKonceptz amp wiring, and the trusty 12" subwoofer that has been in storage for the past 5yrs.

Going in the Monte Carlo this weekend, kids car for her Xmas present.

Got the subwoofer from a group buy about 7yrs ago from a guy who designed & made his own Home Theater subs, people raved about them and he decided to use a different motor assembly and make a car audio specific version. It's a beast. Has the pop & punchiness of a 8" but will hit the lows too.

I just put about $700 worth into repairs recently so that's all the primary is getting

The other? Well, nothing right now. Christmas for it will come in the spring in the form of suspension upgrades

My uber new toy was supposed to be here by Xmas, today I was told it won't. Chances are it will arrive by New Year, but that's just not the same.

Really want to buy a new Head Unit to work with my Lumia 920, but haven't found a suitable device yet. I am looking for bluetooth streaming and built in navigation. I want to be able to change tracks with my steering wheel control via bluetooth too.
