That's weird. As well as very irritating. Why can't manufacture get with it. All Chrysler ones auto calibrate after driving 3-5 miles over 35mph. Or sooner usually. Never need to come in even if you buy new ones.

These allow multiple sets to be programmed to one vehicle without having to run to someone with a programmer.

http://www.ez-sensor.com/

Funny though, they are made by Schrader. The same company that provides Subaru with their OEM sensors.

I've said on here before and will probably say it again, WGMG is when people cruse 25 in a 35 in a single lane but when it turns into 2 lanes they haul ass.

Also when you can tell someone is driving with distractions, like slowly merging into a curb then jerking the wheel back in the lane to go 25 in a 35.

Yup, that was my drive to drop my kids off this morning.

WGMG:

Trying to reuse the mounting bracket from my stock head unit for my new HU. I got three screws off (with some struggle), but the final one broke my Kobalt screwdriver that I had just purchased that day (Thanks Obama!). I got a "better " (less stripped) one located a moment later, but it started stripping the screws that I hadn't undone yet. Went to Perfectionist and got quoted $85 to "do the work". Seriously you guys wouldn't believe how easy the BRZ/FR-S units are to swap. I just need frakkin' brackets for the new HU! They quoted me an okay price for getting my upcoming 10" shallow mount sub installed in the trunk.

I need to run by Element Auto since I trust those guys WITH MY LIFE.

I just bought a new 870 so pray we don't find out who it is.

He was targeted because there is no way where he lives you can see his car from the street. Also no other cars were hit.

This is my biggest fear! Sorry to hear about this. Have him take his car to AKDips or CCA, depending on his situation with insurance or finances.

CCA does body work? I'll mention it to him.

It was all across the car, several body panels.

I meant for covering it up. Unless your brother is repainting it, I was giving cheaper options. I figured vinyl overlay or plasti-dipping the entire car are cheap (and fun) alternatives.

People that let their dogs run free, unless you live in the middle of nowhere it is completely irresponsible and basically saying "I don't really love my dog, or even care if it gets killed."
And if it has a history of "getting out", that is not an excuse! Fix the problem immediately or give the dog to someone who is able to properly care for it.

WGMG: a thick layer of ice on top of all the major roads in town. Even with studded tires, I'm slip sliding all over the place.

$10.50 for 12 screws that SHOULD be needed to mount my Pioneer AVH-P8400BH (TRZ50P080FTC x6 and CRZ50P090FTC x6, they didn't know which one of the 6 would be needed, though I'm thinking it's the TRZ ones) from Pioneerelectronics.com. Shipping to Alaska: $27.03 FedEx Ground or $37.06 UPS Blue. $2.95 handling either way.

I've gone to Fasteners & Fire Equipment, Home Depot and Lowe's looking for the spec'd screws (5x8 or 5x9), but so far no luck finding anything to spec. I got 5x10 with washers and even went below spec to 4x8, but those are too small whereas the 5x10 just won't screw into the aftermarket unit. There are some close ones, but I think the thread on the screws need to be more "coarse"? They screw right into the fine thread on the stock unit (which is also a Pioneer, I believe) Gonna have to trial and error it. This is maddening! Been sitting on this stereo for almost a month now and I've been wanting it for almost 2 years at this point.

Maybe try an audio installers shop? They would probably GIVE them to you if you're a nice guy.
