Took a picture of the G in her winter attire...still catches my eye after all these years when I walk out to her. Canít wait to get the snows off and the summers on though.

Yeah I can't wait to get the snow off mine too, fml it just won't stop F'n snowing over here... I've never seen snow this bad late in the winter season. I stopped trying to keep the G cleared off because it's a battle I can't win. Somewhere under there is my precious.

Damn, the coldest it's been here at the house all winter was 34*. Pretty unusual for us not to get below freezing at all, I guess global warming IS a thing at least here in south Tx lol.

We've had a really mild winter up in New Hampshire too. My winters are on the wear bars on the inside edge and I don't think I've been stuck once all season and that's going out during snowstorms to practice car control at the limit.
Last weekend I got a great deal on this sub/amp combo and finally completed my sound system, although now I'm on the lookout for a smaller (and lighter) sub.

2 12" subs in a 1" thick sealed box

Still room to fit the skiis but barely


Last night going home from work I lost the ability to release my clutch on the highway.... fortunately I was in 5th at the time and managed to make it all the way to a lift. There were no threads, but JB weld is holding so far until I can do it properly with a larger bolt.


what's the problem here

I remember when I finally got round to cut and buffing my old G - it was weird taking sand paper to fresh glossy paint.
Bringing it back to a flat mirror like finish is quite satisfying - albeit time consuming - though.

Finally had a break in the weather and installed a new battery. Warmed up the car and brushed off the snow, not even going to bother shoveling it out though because we're expecting more snow next week...

So I finally dropped my wheel off at the shop yesterday to get powdercoated again since some of it was peeling. I took my OEM wheel with me too so they can install it temporarily until the powdercoat is done.

But I was driving today and realized that my TPMS light isn't on. I thought they had originally taken my TPMS sensors off and installed them in my aftermarket wheels when I first bought them. So my OEM wheel shouldnt have a sensor in there. So why is my TPMS light not comin on?? I highly doubt they installed new sensors in my aftermarket wheels when I first bought them, and left the old sensors in the OEM wheels. And I watched them this time....so I know he didnt swap the sensor from one wheel to the other. Any ideas??

Let the air down to 25psi and see if the light comes on.

Picked up these GTR Premium wheels last week and tried them on the G, rears fit great but the front tires rubbed on the knuckle unfortunately.

​​​​​​Maybe they added other sensors and you just weren't aware. If you.havent seen it yourself you're just relying on assumed information. Possible there ARE sensors, easy enough to test by letting the pressure down and driving around the block.

I don't know how else it would not illuminate the flat tire light on the dash, unless the light has been damaged and doesn't work. That's easy to check during the key ON lamp test though.

I confirmed the light works when turning the key to ON. I stopped by the wheel shop to check up on the status. The guy said that they swap the sensors from the old wheels to the new ones during installation. He even came out and checked out the valve stem and confirmed it doesnt have a sensor.

But now that I think about it, I dont remember seeing them ever dismount my original tires from the rims. Im just gonna do as u suggested and drop the pressure and drive around for a little bit. Lets see what happens.
