MDX running well- mods still working like new (thanks again!)...

X will be in shop next week (another mod ), you'll see it soon...sending PM

No Taste for me...it's kind of lost it's appeal IMO...ribfest sounds interesting

Rose definitely needs help- if Bulls mgmt. can make the right moves this summer, it'll be Chicago vs. Miami all over again- with a diff. outcome

Damn, more mods? Leds? I am glad everything we installed is running good still. If you ever need any other stuff done, dont hesitate to ask.

I went to Ribfest on the Northside a few weeks ago. It was great.

Next year is gonna be good for the Bulls.

I went to the Taste of Chicago. Most of the food there is pretty ordinary, varying from decent to awful (I threw out a couple of items after taking one bite). There was one exception this year, new to Taste of Chicago. Lao Sze Chuan in Chinatown is one of the very best Szechuan restaurants in Chicago. At their booth, they are serving their dry chili chicken. Thankfully, they didn't change the recipe at all, which means you get chicken piled high with dried peppers. It's a really REALLY spicy dish, and as long as you like spicy food, it's great!

I haven't used them myself, but I've heard good things about Wheel Tech in Highland Park.

Wheels America has a shop in Elk Grove Village.

Ive also heard of wheels america. Never used them though. You could always try a body shop too.

Hi Guys, Im a fellow chicagoan and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on where to get the 105k service done on my '04 MDX. I bought it from libertyville acura and have had my oil changes done there but their quote for the 105k service is pretty steap so I was wondering if anyone knew of any other dealers or independent shops that might be more reasonable.

Thanks in advance!

I stand by The Pit Shop

Drew used to work at the acura stealership, i liked the way i was treated (not to mention their prices are usually less than half of what the stealer would charge).
