Default So what did Santa Claus bring you for Christmas?

Not really Santa, but my wife got me a great car cover so the G8 can sit nice and warm in the garage all winter.
Told me she just didn't understand cams and things, and was afraid of buying the wrong thing...
Merry Christmas!

I bought it a few weeks ago for myself for Christmas, but I got an HSV triple gauge pod.

I'm still waiting on some Squash Brembo brackets. Two weeks now... Got some extra Brembo rotors too. Maybe some more stuff I don't know about yet. Doing presents next weekend when my wife and baby get back here.

Axlebacks, LT Headers and a 3" Mid Pipe with an X pipe! Just awaiting a day to head over to a buddy's place to weld in the wideband sensor bung and get those things installed! Will happen before the new year!

Don't get too excited, it sounds like a trap. LOL

My G8 got a beater to keep some miles off of it.

Wife didn't get me anything...I heard I thought we aren't getting each other gifts. She got double heart necklace and a few other things.

Glad I bought myself a costar unit I guess.

My wife let me drive out to a muffler shop (Mr. Muffler in Romeo, thanks for the suggestion Janet/Jerry) and get the Corsa mid-section put on Christine. I would have put it on myself but the Corsa system is a lot of overlapping pipes and clamps vs. bolts.

I've tried to explain to the wife she's got a very unique system now with the Kooks 1 7/8" Mids, Corsa mid-section into Solo axle backs but she doesn't quiet get it. The sound is very nice though I'll try to get some video up in the next day or so for people to hear.

Aside from my wife buying me the black go pro camera, I bought the G8 one of these, but this is a crappy ass cell pic...
