Spotted

Like an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in chinchilla, LBM will bring you in and out of consciousness with alternating waves of outer space-like freshness and pharaonic opulence. You can think of the Paris based design firm like a renaissance man from the future, whose inspirations age timeless, yet capture and astound those in the present.

LOL weird! Car's still not fixed... hoping to pick it up tomorrow. Since it was already there I had him do the rear brakes instead of me doing this over the weekend as planned.

PS: Your car makes mine look like a 4x4 in that picture.

Yes he's fair and really knows his stuff. I forget his hourly rate these days... I want to say $70? Lately he's been getting some real cheap parts so for things like brakes sometimes you have to specify that you want OEM equivalent.

Biggest issue with him is sometimes he doesn't like to show up, oh and sometimes he can be grumpy :lol:

So maybe I shouldn't ask him for a ride home if I drop my car off? ;)

Does he have a problem with the low-ness of your car, Rick?

I assumed he would, and for that reason I ended up trying a local guy in Paris for my wheel bearing last week. My dad dropped by yesterday morning to see how things were looking and he told me we had a "happy Klaus today". So I guess he wasn't seem phased by the ride height.

I could hear him saying in his German accent "Are you aware you lose ground clearance when you lower your car like that?" :lol:

I was moreso expecting "Are you aware you are a complete idiot when you lower your car like that" :-P

When I was having that low idle problem I pulled in there at summer height on the 18s and his face was priceless

I'll leave that pic here to make for my car's sorry current state.

Picked the car up Saturday... it now holds oil and brake fluid. Feels okay man.

I miss summer.
Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

:love:

Something really made the colour pop, maybe the background or lighting. Those pics almost make me want to put the steelies back on in the spring. I think I want to move on though... maybe I'll post a thread and get everybody's $0.02 on what vehicle I should get. At the very least it'd be good for a laugh :lol:
