Google it...everyone's visor flops. I used velcro, but with extreme temps the adhesive wears off... I'm considering stapling the velcro but I don't want holes

Ok, I'm not going to clog up this thread anymore defending myself against your ignorant troll posts, so this is the last thing I am saying to you about this.

I don't know WTF your problem is, or why you want to start **** with me for absolutely no reason, and I don't really care, but here's the deal. I already won the argument.

I never said I "dismissed the tire" and never said the sidewall design "affected my decision" to buy the damn thing or not. You made all that crap up. Why? Because either you cannot read, or you just want to make **** up for no reason. Either way, you might as well go troll someone else, and maybe pick someone you think you can win an argument with, because you can't win an argument with me based on a bunch of made up BS.

You're on my ignore list now, so don't expect any more replies to your BS, made up troll posts.

Nobody said YOU would dismiss the tire or be affected your decision to choose a tire... we said it in GENERAL. Even if someone would (not you, of course), I said "to each his own" & I'm cool w/ that.

Lastly, about the chill pill... you were getting . FYI, I take MY chill pill DAILY therefore I'm .

Same thing happened to mine. I almost crashed several times from a surprise visor flip. I tried using 3m double sided tape, but that wore out quickly. What I ended up doin is wedging a dime, yes a coin, in the female? end of the visor. The wedged dime provided enough force to keep the visor from falling.

Unfortunately, that's not an option anymore... When I said I ripped it off, I mean, I pulled the visor (including the shaft it swivels on) out of the ceiling of my car. I broke the plastic base with the screws in half during the process.

Lol I can vouch for that. Me and my gf at the time, rented a 50cc scooter and went up a 50* incline. We were going sooooo slow that traffic was building up behind us lol. I told her to get off and walk to the top and I'll meet her there cuz it seemed walking was faster But the gas mileage was crazy good and about $2 to fill up . I honestly would have pulled the trigger if the loan got approved for the ruckus and the upgrade kit. My friends ruckus is super fun and fast as hell lol

Are you sure about that 50 degree incline? That's extremely dangerous and I don't think any engineer would build a road like that haha.

Regardless, this guy hasn't gotten back to me all day today. He better not have sold it.

Any of you guys install coilovers on your Subie's? Know of any websites that may have a DIY with pictures on the install? I know on our Audi forums we have detailed DIY's of this stuff but not coming up with much on NASIOC.


Thanks.

Its a pretty straightforward install. Could be done in an hour if it doesnt give you any problems. 3 took me less than 45 minutes but the damn rear drivers side took me a day

Heres a good link
