Anyone happen to know how long you should wait before applying a clear bra on a portion of a car that was newly painted?

Uber doesn't approve most luxury cars in general. Jaguar didn't even make the cut and the rest are one or two models per brand. They're lowkey doing you a favor, not sure why anymore would want to rack up miles on their luxury car.

Check with person that painted it. I've heard anywhere from 30 to 90 days.

One of my customers just picked up this monster last week. 2008 GT2 with 11k miles. Purchased from original owner who happens to race for Porsche and even won the 24hr of Daytona in a GT3 Cup car.





And yea he damn near took his front lip out on that curb

Welp, it's time.

Took my 08 G35x for reg maintenance a few weeks ago & the car requires $3K worth of work. mean.gif

After mulling over it for a few days, I decided to sell the car instead of repairing.

Got it appraised by KBB & got offered an okay amount. Supposed to be handing it over tomorrow.

Obviously, I need to get it replaced and my #1 option was the BMW 4GC but since I'm paying my tuition out of pocket, it's simply not plausible to take on $500+ car note.

More than likely looking at the Q50 since they're reasonable btwn $19K - $21K.

I'm salty because I haven't had a car note since 2012 and was hoping the G could hold out until next May, when I was planning on get the 4GC. But alas, things happen.

What exactly did they tell you needed to be done? NEVER trust what the stealership has to say, always get a second opinion.

^^ Power steering rack, spark plugs, sway bar links, and a few other things

This. I could do sway bar end links, plugs, and I'm no damn mechanic. Get some aftermarket endlinks that'll probably last longer. Like with my sti the stock endlinks are a joke and tend to fail

I did my own sway bar end links a few weeks ago in less than an hour. Power steering rack would probably be the most expensive.

You talking about getting another car with a car note off of something you can take to an indy mechanic in your city for like half the price or buy the parts yourself online and just pay for labor

Do you notice anything wrong with your ps?
post #57169 of 57254
Yeah if you really want the 4 series, I'd try to do some of that stuff myself. There's so many diy posts on forums with step by step pictures or YouTube videos that should be easy enough to follow. I never did **** myself before I got my last car, by I did 99% of the stuff myself after I got it.

I have the same ones actually.

The side with the longer fibers is used for wiping surfaces initially with the cleaning product. Short fiber side is used for buffing the surface after the "initial" wipe down.

Isn't a splitter the one thats flat and sticks straight out?
That one looks more like a lip to me
post #57174 of 57254
A splitter is in addition to as opposed to replacing a lip.

as far as i know, i thought the difference between a splitter and a front lip was that a splitter actually created downforce whereas a front lip was just for cosmetics.

You doing yourself a disservice. Probably run you half that without the dealership and it would hold you till next May. I wouldn't turn that car in if I wanted the 4GC
post #57178 of 57254
This is the splitter on our race car. Which is mounted under the front lip. And splitters are actually attached to the chassis underneath the car, not just to the bottom of the bumper like a front lip is. Well, at least legit ones are.




And the only reason there is a front lip on this race car is so that the splitter is sitting against a flat surface, because the bottom of the M3 bumper is not flat.
