What's IMAO? I think I've seen that somewhere or did I just make it up?

I do things the correct way, once and I'm not gonna fix it when someone else screws it up. Wiping my own ass is the only thing I'll do over and over again until it's done right.

before i came here i didn't know much..

BUT I DID LEARN THIS !

If you have a POS, you can't blame the ECU,

do not mistake the DRL for the TCS or the ABS,

There isn't any good cheap LSD for the A/T XD,

SPEC III is the only ATF,

if you enjoy WOT get a CAI or SRI,

the most common formula for fun is I/H/E,

ICE is for people with USD

if your TPS trips the CEL, then youre definitely SOL

don't try to fool the MAF,

always read a MAP, and anything worth doing is a PITA

we all like to ROFL, so any LOL is better than no LOL.

welcome to the world of elantraclub.com
oh yeah.. EVEN if your car is FUBAR we always like PIX.

think i covered everything guys?

Oh no, I'm so sorry... the correct answer is The Moops.

The packaging clearly stated '100'. I'm short ONE luft balloon.

I could be wrong, but I think that stemmed from the computer gaming world, also seen as "pwned"- sometimes pronouced Pehz-owned meaning- "Yo I just layed the smacketh down on your roody-poo candy-ass!!"
