Very nice. By the way how cold is it there? Here it's only -5, but I heard in Poland up to -30c?!

Thanks!
:)) Last 3-4 days were killers in Romania!!! At day, max temp. -10 c, at night -23 c, at least in my town. You must see how it's scream the engine in the morning at the first start (with oil GM 5W30 very good)! :( But no problems for my Cally. It's a winner!
Although ,  the instant consumption is very high right now (14-15 / 100km) but it is normal for those conditions!
I wanna show something that I bought for my baby. It's a fuel injector cleaner and lubricant from DuraLube (I heard it's very good). Has anybody tested from the forum?

Some pics with the "potion" :P

agreed

OK guys! I wanted to be a surprise to everyone, but now it's too late! In the few months that will come, I want to change the image of my car (th bonnet specially), so that you'll not have anything to reproach! :P
Stay tuned! More to come!

Marvelous red beast! You put lots of work in that car :) and now it looks great! Enjoy Your Cali ;D

Thanks for the good words man! The car came with original Hella headlights. I change them with a pair of black angel eyes, but they were made from cheap plastic and not watertight. Because they were "blind of one eye" :D I've change them back to originals (and look much better with the black hood on top. I've had the same xenon kit on both types of headlights. The light is very good on the Hella's.

P.S. Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean by "HID with EA"!

Think he means AE as in Angel Eyes. Probably just mistyped. :)

On page 2 pics, it looks like you need to check your door hinges! It's pretty out of the line.

What's wrong with my hinges??? They are in good condition! I'm sure you are talking about something based on a optical illusion...
