Years ago, we transported a bunch of koi that we rescued up to the fam. One dumbass jumped out of the holding container and dried out ded in the bed of the truck, the rest made it to the destination. We split them up between FIL and Cousin. FIL had built a little pond for them, happy fishes. Next time we saw him asked cousin about how his fish were doing. He ate them.

WTF.

Back in 08 when my area flooded, we were bow fishing in the streets. When the water receded, all you saw were dead carp everywhere!

I actually think that is why he ate it.

I don't talk to him much anymore.

Hey I posted a separate thread but thought I'd ask it here -

I am thinking to upgrade my 4G TL from 17" to 19" wheels/tires but not sure if I can live with the ride/noise. Does anyone here have a 4G TL running on 19"s? I'd like to ride a long (or if you let me, drive the car) to see how it is? Thanks a bunch.

Hi All,

I own a 2006 3G TL and have some issues with the brakes. I get a grating sound while braking after I changed all four brake pads recently at a local repair shop. I am planning to go back there and ask them to check it out.

I bought the car when it had 77K miles on it and it is now up to 140K. Any recommended service that needs to be done? I live in the Galleria area and would welcome a visit to anyone who can take a look at the car and advice.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

the local repair shop must have bent a dust shield. Have them go over the install and check their work!

In Midtown but you might see me stuck in traffic on Southwest Frwy, West Loop, or North Frwy. Or I could be parked up at a restaurant, enjoying that diverse H-Town cuisine scene.

Sup H-Town AZ. Been busy with some mods and this is what the RDX looks like now.

Yeah, I barely have enough free time to wipe my ass after crapping. But if something comes together, I'd be down if I can get a kitchen pass
