    Ha, I wish a trip down there was in my cards. I want to visit your shop since I know you service a good number of cool cars. Maybe I'll have you replace the control arm ball joints, both are on their way out in a couple thousand more miles.

            Anyone know an Alignment shop around lynnwood that will accept my lowered car? Im currently looking at Brody's since they treated me well with the exhaust.

              Just make sure it's a drive on (level with ground) platform and you will be good.

                Ahh ok. Wish i didnt have to replace the stupid tie rod, then i wouldnt have to drop more money on an alignment. Im not taking any BS though if its harder to align.

                    Blizzaks are alright and will get the job done reasonably well. But if you need to go a step beyond that, Gislaved Nordfrost is the tire to get.

                    Nobody knows winter traction like the Swedes (where there is snow on the ground 80% of the year).

                        Yeah, I need new tires for the iX. I think I'll probably just get snow tires for the winter and then in spring get new wheels and tires.

                        Has anybody dealt with a bad cold start valve? My car runs like complete dog shit in the morning. It just completely lays down when I try to accelerate. This morning I allowed the car to warm up for about 15 minutes or so before going to work and it was fine. I was talking to one of my techs about it and he seems to think it's the cold start valve.

                            Try Si board and batteries.

                                Sounds exactly like what happened to me. Either the trans detent is broken or the internal selector rod is jammed (the little pin that controls what gear goes where can jump out and jam sideways, particularly if it's had a hard life from slap shifting, etc.) Regardless, you need a new trans.

                                Doesn't Steven have one kicking around still?
