Might be worth asking if they mall security has a video camera in that area. You might get lucky and catch the SOB.

Yup yup, did all that usual stuff. Was there for a few hours, cameras were not in the location of the hit and run (Macys Parking Garage @ Memorial City). I even proceeded to check out every single black vehicle at Memorial City to see if I can find my matching white paint

Whoever did it did not stick around. At least I have full coverage.

Figured out that the tapping sound my car was making at throttle tip was my cobb 3 port solenoid. Guess it makes that sound when it's cold
What a relief I just knew I had messed up my valve train

swapped stock brake pads for Hawk hps, bleed the fluid, and did some custom zip-tie stiching to the front bumper tears. After bedding in the brakes and letting them cool down, they definitely lock the wheel up much quicker!

Filled up with e-85 after driving into Lubbock. Washed the car and detailed the wheels. Also found that discount tire had put the tread on the wrong way when they put a plug in it several thousand miles back! Fixed now, but hoping my diffs don't die an early death because of this.

Are the hawks really worth the money? Where did you buy them.

I got them on sale from Fred Beans I believe (coupled the order to make it worth the shipping). To be honest, I haven't tracked them yet, and that is the major reason I finally installed them (had them for over a year, and the stock brakes just last forever...). I can't say about heat fade once they're on course, but they honestly seem to grab more quickly.

I needed new brakes at the time, but the dealership replaced stockers for free so I held off on the install. I'll give you an update once they have been put to the test

They don't squeal like harder pads though, so for street use they are great so far. Longevity will be something to ask a member who has used them for awhile though.
