    Sweet Tod. You satisfied with the work Continental did and the way they handled you? I had my 308 out today. Ran fine but I noticed some gasoline smell after I took a long right-hand off ramp. So I'm thinking of having my 60k done right now instead of next year. Get everything up to snuff and change out all the fuel hoses, something I've wanted to do for some time.

    Did you get that 10% off with the FCA membership? I'm not currently a member but if you can save 10% I'll have to join. They say you've got to get the work done by 3/15, so that'll be a tight one.

    Let me know what you thought of your service experience, please.

    Very satisfied with the work Continental did, they are very professional there and they don't hesitate to bend over backwards for you. Yes, they are a bit more costly than taking it to a small import shop, but thier service is very good. But, i always believed in the old saying, you get what you pay for...

    Had the car out today waking up the neighborhood, the Tubi sounds great! Especially during exceleration between 3800 and 4000 rpm.... WOW! Talk about a nice ROAR!!

    The car has a totally different sound to it now and feel, much nicer.... I just can't wait to drive it again, but i know the winter is still here and so are the salt trucks, just waiting to dump more on these streets first chance.... :(

    That part still gets me nervous: To see whether the car is still there...

    OTOH it is well insured, but still...

    Did you guys notice a power difference with the Tubi? I've heard people claim yes and no. Just curious what your opinions are.

    Should be about 10 hp. I doubt, that you feel that by itself.
