    So i did the "Kidney bean mod" that seems to be the go for everyone with this motor whether in a 300C or Mercedes or Jeep.
    Basically this black plastic Kidney bean is an inlet muffler thats mounted between the Turbo and intercooler designed to gentrify the intake noise...
    It also creates more lag. So that perforated bulit pops out and away you go. It definitely comes onto boost a bit quicker and s9ne people claim better fuel economy so not bad for an hours work.

    No need to yell at him, just let him know and I bet you never have another issue because he will remember it every time he sees a car of yours.

    So since i did the lift there has been a slight knock in the front left that has slowly been getting worse and a couple of potholes whilst on the recent roadtrip sounded rather shite.
    After i did the lift i got a wheel alignment done by a place ive been using for years and have a great reputation. The Wheel alignment dude is about 6ft 7 and about 150 kilos and not a fat cunt.
    However on this Saturday morning he seemed to manage to leave all my bolts loose......The lower control arm has a bolt that is meant to slide to do the alignment, yep you guessed it loose.o the LC arm was able to bang from one side to another making a racket the hole time.
    Fuck me how hard is it to do up the bolts after doing an alignment when thats all you do!

    Happy as fuck now though. Should i send a sternly worded letter or just assume he had a big friday night and move on?

    Been doing a central west loop around Dubbo, Parkes,Cowra and the ACT the last week. Loaded up to the shithouse and whatvseems like neverending hills has seen the economy go out to 19 liters per hundred but towing like a champ.

    Relaxing trip away and can report the bags are awesome. Car drives much nicer sitting level instead of bum dragging.

    I didnt realise they are so cheap. Been thinking about replacing the inner springs on the defender with these to soften up the rear unladen

    If you just run them at 5 Psi when not loaded it wont hurt to leave them in and if it ever cops a decent load you can just bump them up a tad.

    Looks like a better quality setup than the polybags I'm running in the Chally, I'm thinking about pulling them out since I don't tow with it and the rear springs are already the heaviest available for it.

    Threw in a set of rear airbags to level it out when i tow the caravan. With a 260kg ball weight plus gear in the boot it looked a bit sus when towing.
    Picked these up for $280 on fleabay and its a car specific kit with adaptors and all the hose etc to suit. Was piss easy to install. Will connect it all up tomorrow and see how it goes.
