    and you apparently pushed your caliper piston in without rotating it

    I don't see how any pneumatic wrench I've ever seen could fit in this space, but it'd be awesome if one did...

    How do you liked the braided lines? I've always thought about getting some but never have. They have a nice kit for my car that comes with all the lines and the line for the clutch.

    wish I had a compressor still. I won't settle for anything but a nice big belt-drive one though, those little oil-less things drive me crazy, too much ****ing noise!

    I always feel like I'm cheating when I use air, everything just becomes too easy!

    If I remember right with my mk4 (Allen bolt instead of triple square)... I just added some more leverage to the end of of the ratchet.

    it's a possibility.. Hil reminded me on facebook that I could have put my factory lug wrench on the end of the wrench to use a shorter breaker bar. That would at least fit inside the wheel well.

    seriously? is it the same pan as a megane?
    the worst part is the drivetrain. the engine is small and buzzy, and the transmission hunts a lot.
    it has only 2 speeds on the automatic selector, and an O/D on/off button.
    if you're on the fwy and you turn off OD, it goes down TWO gears. you can't get it to hold 3rd no matter what you do.
    i got less than 30 MPG and it wanders all over the freeway in the slightest wind. it gets kinda scary at 75+.
    tomorrow I get another 80 miles of seat time down the 405. whee!

    meh.. seems I'm not exactly correct. Either way, it was sold in Europe & Japan for a while before it was brought over here.

    shares its platform with (according to wikipedia):
    Nissan Cube
    Nissan March/Micra Mk.III
    Renault Clio Mk.II/Mk.III
    Renault Modus
    Renault Twingo Mk.II

    A version with stretched wheelbase is used for the following cars:
    Nissan Cubeł
    Nissan Note
    Nissan Tiida/Nissan Versa
    Nissan Bluebird Sylphy G11
    Nissan Juke
    Nissan Wingroad Y12
    Nissan NV200

    well, I did some additional reading too, turns out the automatic is a CVT. No wonder it'd hang for so long at some RPMs.
    I think if it was a stick, with some mild suspension mods and better tires, it'd begin to approach OK.

    MR18DE – 1.8-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine
    Horsepower – 122 hp @ 5,200 rpm
    Torque – 127 lb-ft @ 4,800 rpm

    lol makes my M42 seem downright powerful

    well.. having driven a recent Clio I can tell you there's nothing inherently wrong with how the platform itself drives.

    Japanese and American manufacturers seem to think that American car buyers want a car that doesn't have good feel or control. I just don't get it...

    I couldn't get my car up on a curb.. unless it's less than 2 - 3" high, and then that kind of loses the point of using a curb

    Well, it was yesterday, but I cleaned up some rust spots in the SR area of the GTD. Shit was leaking water directly into my lap! the car does not leak at all anywhere else. So I guess thats the best part is the car wants me to know that its leaking. POR-15 and some sanding and we shall see if that did the trick.
