Ripped my front plate completely off (but Cliff's plate holders stayed attached), and cracked the lip slightly. Lower grill just got pushed in, and both corner pieces stay attached (Thanks for that DIY, Johnny).

Oh well, all the more reason to get another front lip, it just pisses me off that I have to order another personalized plate from DMV.
But the important question is "you alright?"

Drove the car down to SoCal on Friday for over 400 miles round trip. Got the stereo tuned while I was down there and it sounds pretty incredible IMHO. We'll see how she does this weekend against some stiff competition.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

Nice.

132k for me.

Also, cleaned the air flow sensor, throttle body ( anyone ever actually seen buildup) and replaced the spark plugs. Not to bad for a quick afternoon job.

Re: What did you do to your xb today??

What spark plugs work well with these? I might need to change mine. Just bought it at 160k and am thinking of what all needs to be looked at.
