I don’t understand some people. They conflate asking them for the serial number of their broken electronics with asking for their real name and address, as if helping resolve their issue is breaching their privacy.

Some people have boundaries, others are insecure and paranoid.

Burrs keep diggin’ in the trash and keep finding trash. Time to change things up.

Burrs are gonna go to the Cobb Tuning 20th anniversary meet tomorrow. Burrs know a few folks there as well as the founder, so it’ll be nice to stop in and say hi.

Burrs were lucky enough to get help from numerous friends at many points in life. Even now, Burrs appreciates giving and receiving, especially if it’s noms. :)

I’m not talking about folks who say, “You don’t have to” or “only if it’s no trouble" as a way of being polite.

There are folks who are so paranoid/insecure that accepting a favor/help takes away from their “independence.”

These people are often quite lonely and wonder why.

Burrs learnt a long time ago - It’s good to offer to help people out if you can.

If they refuse because they refuse to be in your debt, steer clear. Because these are folks who feel that everything is transactional. They generally make for poor friends.

Your Maserati Levante came with Dodge brakes. Also the 3.0 V6 engine is a highly modified Chrysler pentastar engine assembled by Ferrari. Just FYI. Lol

@HypoidBear@twitter.com Or, I should say, Cool Blue Boost Xenarcs. :)

Really happy with how the Osram Cool Blue Intense Xenarcs/New Angel Eye bulbs/eyebrow wiring came in, and big thanks to @HypoidBear@twitter.com for helping with the install.

Really happy with how the new headlights/Osram Cool Blue Boost/LED Halo bulbs and the brow LED wiring all came together.

Made saag paneer with chapathi and blackened catfish with lemon butter sauce and sprouted brown rice because no one tells Burrs what to do.

Before the Forester, Burrs had one of the first USDM cars converted with an EJ205 converted from a then-new WRX. 1999 Outback Sport, VF39, Bosal downpipe, up pipe, RA gears, 4.44 final drive, STi Pink injectors. No torque, very high strung, very sleeper.

Continuing with the old car theme, I had a Forester XT -> Forester STi converted with Brembo brakes, built motor /w Cosworth pistons, 2007 STi tranny, DCCD, R180, JDM front end, leather interior. The late Dave Mirra told me it was nicest Forester he’d ever seen.

The 2003 E46 330xi 6MT with Bilstein HDs and square E46M anthracite wheels was fun. Burrs drove it to 255k miles. It had 200k in these pics.

Sometimes, I miss the old SVX, but after so much love and work put into it - engine rebuild, 4.44 tranny, shift kit, new supension, STi wheels, just to have a street racer hit and wreck it, it’s just a pleasant memory.

I need a badger alt just to provoke @DenningBadger@twitter.com.
