Car Set Up

Installation Frustration

17 Mar , 2010   David  

It seems like every time I attempt to install or upgrade something on a car it is way more difficult then it should be. ‘Simple tasks’ that should take less then an hour end up taking 4 or 5 hours including at least one trip to the auto parts/hardware store and a few choice words yelled at whatever I am working on. Sometimes I think I must be the least mechanically inclined person in the world. Yet I still try to do things myself, maybe it’s stubbornness or maybe it’s stupidity! I think a lot of people have probably experienced this, at least I hope I am not alone on this.

March seems like it has turned into the month to do installation and maintenance on our cars. The summer suspension is back on the STi and a new exhaust is on the 135i, both tasks led to some frustration and headaches. It looks like I will get a chance to get my new suspension on the 135i this weekend, hopefully it will go smoothly! Hopefully everyone else’s projects are going well, autocross season is almost here.
