Congrats on the new iPhone Brian! You were still on the 2G weren't you? That's one helluva jump!!

Car looks good Luis! I LOVE the smoked headlights! Had them on my '01 too... Just look sooo much better...

Speaking of birthday presents, my wife is awesome! She bought me 3.73 gears for mine! Now I just need to get them installed!

I'm interested to see if the reception is any better than the 3gs.
I moved my shop to a much bigger nicer location but the reception here stinks. I pretty much have to stand out in the parking lot to get a signal and even then its only one bar. I'm hoping the 4 is better or I'm going to have to find some sort of cell phone antenna booser or something. Any tips would sure be appreceated.

The iPhone 4 doesn't really seem to get *better* reception since I've been using it, but it's not worse either... AT&T has the Microcell's you can buy (which basically hooks up to your internet and turn your phone into kind of a VOIP phone), but I have heard they really help the people that struggle with a signal... The bad news is that I believe they are like $100 or so... Which means you got to give AT&T even more money to make their service work... *sigh*

If 100.00 would fix it, I'd be thrilled.
Now the problem is, it's corded to the computer, yes?

It plugs into a broadband connection, so technically, you don't *need* a computer, just the connection.

Leo bought that microcell gadget a couple weeks ago, he seems pleased with it.

Yup I got the Mircocell a couple weeks ago. Boosted my sig from 1-2 bars to a full 5 bars all the time. It's $150 but you can get $100 if you sign up for the unlimited mircocell plan ($20 a month and you can talk all you want without using your minutes) You can cancel it anytime. The microcell has no monthly fee. There's also a couple of other rebates if you sign up for U-verse or there internet. If you do that the Microcell is free after all the rebates.

Good to here it actually works! I hadn't heard too many 'real world' stories on it yet!

You also have a S/C... Doesn't that help suck down the gas more too?

What kind of gas mileage are you averaging now? Lately (when) I drive it, I am averaging about 20-21 between (80%) Hwy and (20%) City...

Also, how did you like Vendicated Tuning? (You can PM me the answer if you'd like).

The actual headlight housing I purchased from Ebay; there's a specific buyer that everyone recommends. $90 the pair FTW!

I hope you siliconed the heck out of those things. I got a pair from ebay last summer, and they had cracks and leaked within a couple weeks. Looks really good tough.

I had the super charger for a year before I did the gears....Fwy Mileage took a sharp downturn with the gears.
You have an auto too, right?

Do this:
Drive down the fwy at a constant speed and zero the milage meter.
push in the OD button to turn it off. Zero the Milage meter.

Note the difference in Mileage....thats about what you will get with 373's vs. 331's.
