Re: G8 GT door handles

I asked him a million times to send me the set he claimed to have as spare and it never happened.... What we really need is someone who works at a body shop to take this up as a you order a painted set from them and send your core back after swapping.

Re: G8 GT door handles

I painted the stock ones on my car after a good clean, scuff and filler primer they came out ok, and paint has not flaked a year later... It would be great if we had as a forum a set of old ones that just got passed around so people could get the paint work done while leaving their own stock ones th...

Re: Front end clunk: Steering rack or control arm poly bushings?

Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but my car started making a clunking when going from P to R etc only at super low speeds.

Re: Best bang for the buck Scan tool ?

any cheapo ELM327 device plus your cellphone AP is the cheapest option but I'm not sure if you get airbag diagnosis until you have something better.

Re: Just back from new camshaft tuning Question
