Anybody getting any christmas presents related to their car ?

Are you getting anything for the car or are your wifes/girlfriends just fed up and refuse to get anything car related ?

I'm most likely getting a lifetime bed in the back seat of one of my cars, with living quarters centered in the pass seat area. With parking in a luxurious portion of downtown (somewhere OTHER than where I "temporarily" live now!)

Hope you are joking.
The holidays are a bad time for things like that.

My parants got me 4 Bilstein Comfort shocks, I am enjoying the ride. I am still hoping for a PS2 with GTA, Medal of Honar, and a few other shooters...

I got 2 bushing press tools (differential mount and rear wheel carrier) to go with all the other new rear suspension peices waiting to be installed (by me) on my 87 300D.

I'm getting a couple of hours to mess with the ALDA tomorrow morning so I'll enjoy my 1K rt drive to the in-laws for Christmas even more than usual. And I think that's just great. It'll be a pleasure to be able to do Italian tune-ups again.

I am getting one (or maybe 2?) of the following things:
Pyrometer
Boost Gauge
Hella H4 Headlights (Euro)
8 Quarts of my favorite 15-50w Full Syntheic

Its a trade between the pyrometer and the H4 headlights...
I need a pyrometer for projects...but better light is good.
I am due for a oil change...I am not telling how many miles

Get a battery powered one that comes in the red box...what is it...whatever that brand is
Dad has one and it kicks some serious butt when it comes to taking things off.
Make sure you get the high voltage one though

Hey, if you're kidding and didn't get one, I installed a "TinyTach" in my Dodge. They're about $65 and sense off the injector lines. Easy, fast install.
