Re: Squeaky belt/pulley/tensioner - help diagnose

I agree with Omair. I gave up picking away at these common failures and just do everything when due.

My answer is to do it all new.

Re: Recaro pp upholstery options

Is it vinyl, or is it leather? It's pretty much assumed that any vinyl for seating is going to look like leather. Leather is never vinyl. So which is it?

Re: Paintless Dent Removal Recommendations? (Bay area)

For future reference. I do not have any recommendations, but if they drill, they should not be touching your car. You need to specify this.

Re: OEM Coupe Tail Light Part numbers?

There’s no issue with bulbs or obc errors, the parts are identical US to Euro. Only the lens color changes.

Definitive answer for part number is to look it up.

Re: WTB: OEM LTW Wing

Hah. $1500 is what a regular used OEM GT wing goes for without risers. "Wow, you weren't kidding" barely scratches the surface.

Re: Black Tar Looking Adhesive

You don’t want to caulk the vapor barrier in. Factory is butyl tape.

Re: Review of B spec tune + E85 (335 whp and 265 wheel torque - dyno charts included)

Except the “professional” TIG, “back purged”, welds look like crap.
