    Matt at Obsessed Garage buys a M3P

    This will be a great series to skim through. Yeah his videos are long and boring, but he’s like the Bob Ross of car videos... lol. Due to my adhd it’s great for me to have his videos playing in the background in my office while I do other work. If there’s a car wash product and garage product I...

    Would need to decide what’s a more important freedom. I’d like my freedom to go to my favorite restaurant or watch a play or go to an amusement park and be virus free or at least minimized. besides I don’t think we need to worry about civil liberty preppers... they are already expecting rights...

    I think its great that we are starting to get test kits out there. I don’t know if it was mentioned earlier but I think these tests could be used in conjunction with a geotagged app that tags if you are infected or not. That way if infected then you pop up as a red dot on the app. If not...

    If you get door dinged while sitting in the car...

    1st time this happened to me years ago I was too young to realize the potential consequences. - over 10 years ago I had an BMW coupe. I was walking out of Ikea and noticed another SUV/ Van park next to my car. A fat little kid started sliding up and down the side of the car as if it was a slide...

    Check Out the Cybertruck Promo Photos

    I’m deciding between this and a Rivian R1T. I’ve been doing a lot of off-Roading and overlanding with my FJ Cruiser so it would be interesting to see how this compares to the Rivian off-road being that Rivian is marketing heavily towards the overlanding crowd. that being said I’d probably put...

    Battery damaged

    Here is a link to skid plates that VW enthusiast get... but it be a similar idea VW Skid Plates Here is a link to skid plates for Toyota’s... I know overkill but I have an FJ Cruiser as well that can use them. Stage 2 (Rock Armor) Skid Plate | 07-09 FJ Cruiser | BudBuilt Off-Road However...

    Battery damaged

    That looks like the area that is most vulnerable... the area just posterior to the suspension before the battery pack starts. It’s just a plastic splash shield with nothing underneath to support the weight of the car. So rather than letting things slide past the battery... it just collides with...

    Battery damaged

    I’d think the opposite is true... lower the car more so that the lower bumper takes the damage or hit before you can get over the obstacle and cause more underbody damage. For example... if a metal ladder is in the middle of the road on the freeway... if you have enough underbody clearance you...

    Scrape Armor

    Thinking about getting this as well since I've got mine lowered on coilovers. Washing the car I've noticed all the scrapes I am getting is in the clear bra where the Scrape Armor goes. You need to crouch down to see it. So I am thinking this will do 2 things for me 1) cover up those scrapes...

    Good to know... able to post a picture?

    Quickjack for Model 3 - BL-5000SLX?

    I’m thinking of getting the 5000 SLX as well... has anyone done the 5000 SLX by itself without the extension kit? Is this long enough for the Model 3? If it is not long enough, can I just lift the car side ways with it? And would it be long enough to lift side ways? QJ does mention lifting...

    Costa Mesa vs Buena Park Service Center

    Good to know that they are excellent at service. I’ll have to scout their driveways... usually I can manage by angling. I’ve got as much clearance as say a Porsche GT3 for example. So as long as they don’t need to drive it on the street then I can manage. I’m hoping all they have to do is reset...
