Off and on heavy rain messed up my view of the curb.

 

Ended up scratching the right front rim.

 

FML

 

Maybe I can find (Google/yelp) a rim repair place that won't be too overly expensive.

Oh hai! So two years ago, I gave my brother the 'trix and I myself got a BRZ.

 

My brother is off to Europe for a month now so I been driving the 'trix for the past couple days and will be driving it till he's back. Driving the 'trix around brings back good ol' memories! Anyways, with that, I also thought about the forum and just wanted to check in!

05 XRS here, live in Studio City, CA! 

 

Saw a white 03-04 Matrix XRS with black wheels the other night at a gas station off Moorpark and we ended up getting on the 101S together, we kinda fooled around a bit but traffic got heavier, was wondering if he may be on here.

The website is messed up, so I doubt anyone will see this.

 

Posting in a subforum that hasn't seen anyone in about 4 months too.  :blinksmiley:

 

Hope everyone is doing well in SoCal, all of California, Toronto area, east coast, and all parts in between and beyond.

I'm still lurking. Sold my high mileage 07 xr, and bought a low mileage 04 xr. So far I've fixed both wheel bearings, but now the shafts are done. Gotta buy some new OEM ones. Bad experiences with cardone, Napa, reman.

Still can't decide to drop it with Hotchkis, or TRD springs with some new Tokico HPs. Any suggestions?
