Do you guys have any suggestions for header work on a Toyota? Looking to put headers on my Tundra... checked with 4-wheel Parts but they don't have the long tube for the 5.7L for some reason... so will have to order online. 4WP only installs what they sell, so looking for a good place who does that work. South side of Charlotte is a plus.

Any recommendations?

Yeah, another friend of mine just told me this was the last one on that spot. I wonder why they keep having to move it? It seems like whenever they get momentum going at a new location, they have to move...

Move to Charlotte about 9 months ago, got my TL about 7 months ago.

Was wondering if there are any dedicated Acura car groups in Charlotte?

I saw a cool TL the other day at work that had "Charlotte Acura Group" on the rear windshield, but I couldn't find any more info on the group. The guys who worked in the food truck, one being the owner of the TL, said it was a private group, but they had other customers so I couldn't really chat long.

Searched for "Charlotte" in the search bar to see if I could find any info and found this thread.

Welcome!

The Charlotte Acura Group on Facebook is a "Secret Group", meaning you have to know a member to join. PM me your e-mail address you registered with on Facebook and I'll add you in

Nah, I haven't. I've only put some Tein SAZ coilovers on and some XXR 530's. I got my Raxles coming in tomorrow since my OEM axles are shot to hell.

I don't really plan on doing much else to the car except some cosmetic items since it's a 5AT, unfortunately. Done a lot of repairs and preventative maintenance though.

Crappy picture of the car here:

'06 DMM with Matte Bronze XXR 530's.

Thanks! I really like the stance right now. The roads around here suck to much for me to want to go any lower.

I have definitely put my fair share of cash into maintenance. Seems like it's been a constant stream since I bought the car. Oh well, guess it's what ya get with a 10 year old, 107k mile car.

Unfortunately so! At least doing this stuff now gives you some peace of mind for quite a while

Did the Facebook invitation go through?

Yeah, it's been a good deal up front, but I think once the axles go on the car should drive like new again. I am excite to put the Raxles on, since they are technically an upgrade over the OEM axles.

I don't think it did, I am still seeing the status as 'Pending' when I visit the page through the link you sent me.

Schweet. So the color I'm going with is called Blue Slate Pearl which is an OEM Infiniti color. Its a really pretty color in both direct and indirect sunlight.
