Miataturbo now offers a mobile site. Would you like to view it?

1. Yes.
2. No, but ask me again literally every single time I access this page.

That drives me crazy. Sometimes it has a mind of its own. It will either never do it or every damn time.

The fact is that I don't actually need a car. And, to be honest, the inconvenience of having to move it twice a week (for street cleaning) is a bigger factor than the money.
It's already a bitch to move my car once a week from the street into temporary parking in my complex. I can't imagine twice and also searching for parking. One easy slip = $50 ticket. I can't imagine how much it is in NY.

My search skills are seriously weak this morning. Can anyone point me in the direction of the thread that has all of the Tunerstudio hotkeys?

i hated living in a city and doing that. i got so many tickets, i never paid one. but the worst was they maybe did cleaning once every 3-4 months or so on those days, otherwise it was just a way for the parking meters to collect fees.

I got a parking ticket in Arlington on March 14th, my court date in the end of Sept. I can't wait.

the steps to even get a court date in Arlington is retarded. You have to fill something out online, and about 10 days later you get a form in the mail. the website and form caution you that they'll tack on an extra $60 to your fine if you lose in court; trying to discourage you from doing so. Then in another 10 days or so, after you snail mail your court date request to a different state altogether, they finally give you a court date months in the future. Meanwhile, the city actually sends "bills" in the mail. I think I saved one, I've got two so far. They look like regular like city fees of sorts (like utility or personal property), but it's for your parking ticket.

Could be worse.



The funny part is. It's cheaper to get the ticket than it is to pay for parking in Detroit.

A wayward Chevy struck a tree
whose owner sued defendants three.
He sued car's owner, driver too,
And insurer for what was due.

For his oak tree that now may bear
A lasting need for tender care.

The Oakland County Circuit Court,
John N. O'Brien, J.,
set forth The judgment that defendants sought
And quickly an appeal was brought.

Court of Appeals, J.H. Gillis, J.,
Gave thought and then had this to say:

We thought that we would never see
A suit to compensate a tree.
A suit whose claim in tort is prest
Upon a mangled tree's behest;
A tree whose battered trunk was prest
Against a Chevy's crumpled crest;
A tree that faces each new day
With bark and limb in disarray;
A tree that may forever bear
A lasting need for tender care.
Flora lovers though we three,
We must uphold the court's decree.
Affirmed.


J.H. GILLIS, Judge.
Court of Appeals of Michigan.
Fisher v. Moffet, 122 Mich.App. 418, 333 N.W.2d 67

"Garrett Gt3076" on local craigslist with a bad turbine. Guess there was some sort of part ingested. Asking $300 I got him to take $50. If it's a genuine Garrett, and the housings are ok is it worth picking up/and or trying to rebuild??

Doesn't garret charge around 3-500 to rebuild turbos in Arizona? You could flip that pretty well if so.

Is considered a palindrome if it's numbers instead of letters? My odometer read 65156 when I got in this morning.


Yes, I am a nerd.

I thought that I would never see,
a poem as pretty as a tree.
But due to efforts in court of law,
I pine for the days of my chainsaw.

Let me rephrase.

It's cheaper to get and pay for the parking ticket ($20) than it is to pay for lot parking.

Granted the website works and you don't have to physically haul your *** downtown.

You can add me to that list as well. I used TurbosDirect.Com Web Site - Home in Arizona as they are an authorized Garrett Performance Dealer. I found them through https://www.turbobygarrett.com/turbo...tt/distributor. My invoice for my 2560 CHRA exchange shows $380 and I opted for a couple extras (media blast cleanup of housings, coolant fittings, oil fittings, new bolts, return shipping w/insurance, etc.) Not bad deal for what is essentially a brand new turbo.
