Why not Hella Supertones? More discreet, still loud as f-bomb!

That's what I was thinking, the others look like the horns people go around downtown blasting to get laughs :/

I was actually thinking of the circus when I saw those. Like a clown on a bicycle or something.

Replaced the cracked headlight on my WRX.

Also did an oil change and reinstalled the skid plate with Dale's help since it wouldn't fit over the oil pan without modification. Oil looked good-No silver swirls after 500 miles which is good! So far so good. Also washed the WRX for the first time since August 2011 LOL

Killerbeeee:





Dorothy and Buck together again!

Topped off fluids, checked tire pressures.


Also drove aktractor's amazing twin turbo sho Taurus. Man what a car!

Ford really has their stuff together.

Ford has been impressing me more and more over the years. I can't say I'm not jealous, Mike. I was considered the SHO back in 2010.

How often do you check your tire pressure off-season, Mike?

I really like the look of the newer Focus hatches for some reason. If it came in AWD it would be something I would considered buying. It's become quite popular, more than before anyways. I see them quite often both in and out of state.

If I didn't get the BRZ I was seriously considering the Focus ST or Hyundai Veloster Turbo just in spite of Subaru. I really can't get behind full-time FWD, though.

The main thing I would regret, would be having to get work done at Cal Worthington or dealing with anything there. Though I suppose there is always Kendall but not sure if I would always want to go that much out of my way for service.

Oh yes! Cal Worthington was one of the biggest contributing factors for my disinterest in the Focus ST.

For the Veloster Turbo, Mr. Lancer Evo Eric has been working at Hyundai since late summer, so I wouldn't have minded dealing with them too much.

With Conti I've known everyone for years at this point, so I know who to navigate through to get things done.

The car's comfort, amenities and acceleration are all very impressive.
We were discussing it yesterday. I'd love to see that motor in an awd focus. That would probably get me out of my Subaru !
I check it weekly Chano.

Those amenities are nice, though!

I should check mine weekly. I'm trying to get in the habit with this new ride.

I keep a gauge with me, a couple actually. I usually check them while I am filling up each week. It is just a habit you get into. Doesn't take very long. Usually, I'm just finishing up about the time the pump handle clicks off the anit-overfill feature.

I have a compressor in my garage, so I keep a pretty close eye on them.

The way my car's suspension is set up presently, you can really feel a 5 psi difference.

Changed the oil in the BRZ yesterday and adjusted the tire pressure. 32psi for the summer turns into 28psi in the cold so I had to adjust em up.

Group buy on Blast plates for WRX/STi's by Moore Performance going on right now. Price is down to $275 on this thread..http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...2395474&page=4

Figured I'd share this locally for those who were unaware.

Just check it every time you fill up. I got to get back into the habit, but I normally check the oil and tire pressures every time I'm at the pump. remember that your tire pressures should read a little high depending on the temp of your tires.

I like hella horns because ive almost been hit a few times by people changing lanes while on there cell phones. One time I was stuck behind a car in a parking lot when a lady started to back up strait at me. I laid on my stock horns and she continued to back up. Someone ran over fast enough to stop her right before she hit me. Wouldn't have happened with hella horns.

I don't understand horns that require a compressor though. Adds weight and takes up way too much space.

I agree with Granny. The Hella horns are fine, especially considering how quiet the stocks were and I think they look good. The compressor thing is just to annoy people and laugh about it.
