  2. RevWerks Wheels. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

    Wheels / Tires
    Well, apparently I need to apologize to RevWerks Wheels. Even though the communication stopped, my order was still being filled. I guess it takes 3-4 days to ship AFTER VMR machines them, which happened today, and I got my FedEx confirmation email. Just wish my initial email would have said that.

  5. GXP Struts & Shocks - Direct Replacements?

    Suspension / Brakes
    Hey all. Sorry it took so long for the update. While the G8 was in getting the struts and shocks replaced, it was having some minor body work done, thanks to the lady who hit me in the mall parking lot as I was getting out a couple weeks prior. That, plus the holidays, plus some service hiccups...

  7. Cortex 2950 Tuner For Less/Couldn't be Happier!!

    PCM Tuning / Dyno Results
    After reading quite the handful of postings about the new Flashpaqs not having the CAI option available I went online looking for the old, out of production Cortex 2950. Like most places I found, they were all mostly about $350-$380. However, while clicking around places that had used ones, I...
  8. Another Secret Steering Controls Trick

    Stereo / Electronics
    It's in the manual? Oh, I must have missed that part. Sorry :( Mileage is what you care about when your forced to drive your G8 to work everyday. :( Oh, and for those who want to input "You should pick up a beater car for the winter", I can send you my address for your charitable contributions...
  9. Another Secret Steering Controls Trick

    Stereo / Electronics
    Some of you may or may not know this trick, but here goes. When I stop and get gas, after I fill up I reset the Trip Odometer, I reset the Avg MPG and then I reset the Avg Speed. However, I found out a few weeks ago, you can reset ALL of them at once. Using the steering wheel controls...
