But really, that level of clean means little driving... no rain... water spots are a bitch...

I hardly drive my car and can't keep that level of clean... I also have to deal with a lot more dust and dirt where I'm at VS the "city"... but yeah, that **** ain't easy...

So I'm thinking about starting this process, but more than anything am concerned about maintenance and upkeep following the tuck. I read about diagnostics and troubleshooting being a bitch after moving things around.

Also, for those of you living in mild to cold climates, did you dislike relocating your windshield wiper fluid reservoir to the trunk during winter times? That engine sure does warm that fluid up nice

Yes, 1,000 miles on it since May and that's with it being down for a month.

I can't tell if you're being funny or not, but I did drive it 100miles to street wars in the rain, won best in show, best jdm, best subaru, and best engine bay and then drove it to Philly, and then back home which was another 100miles.

This is true. But what about this one on the NJ parkway. I guess the next thing people will say is I have air bags and I really don't drive with it less then 1" off the ground? hehe

False. If you keep up with cleaning the car, it is easy. I also have a climate controled garage for it so I can pretty much do whatever I want in it.

^damn that sounds like stock motor wrx and it's definitely on airbags. No way he drives it that low that it touches the ground pulling into a parking lot with no ramp.

LOL@ me telling him how to drive it though.
