FHS - I live in West Hollywood and have always considered it to be safest neighborhood around...
Saml01 - I'm not Jewish

Now I have 2 options...

1. Sell Miata and all the **** I have with it right now, pay off my 350Z, and start saving up for a house
2. Finish Miata (another $4-5k to go), drive it for couple of months, sell it then, and pay off my 350Z, and then start saving up for a house

What do you guys think I should do?

wtf.

however it does eliminate a lot of guilt I might have otherwise had about obtaining music from the internets.
my brand new 5zigen 15x7 with 225/45/15 r888 are in the middle of my apartment and they only took a box from one of the wheels to put all the **** in... too heavy to carry out i guess?

Same advice I gave you before you got robbed. Since you're planning on selling the Miata in a few months anyway, I don't see the logic in spending thousands more on it.

Sure Urban, WeHo, but closer to, like, LaBrea? Or, closer to San Vicente?

If you want to dump your PLX stuff, name your price. I picked up my DM-100 and SM-AFR from their promo sale. I've been wanting to pick up some more sensor modules but I've had to send my DM-100 and SM-AFR in twice now for service. Not sure if I want to pay full price for more stuff.

There's a one bedroom place on Westmount, like 400 meters from Urth. I looked at it last time it was vacant but decided to stay Downtown. I think they were asking $1100. No garage, but it has a big driveway.
