LLLLLLAAAAAMMMMMEEEE

So I pull out my car to give it a wash on this beautiful 72 degree day, probly the last warm day here in chicago until after winter, only to find a low pressure warning from my consule. The tire pressure read zero, surely this must be a mistake.... I pull it in to the driveway get out only to what turned out to be a key in my tire. it was so far into the tire that I had a hard time spotting it. So now the dealer has to order me a tire in the morning to the tune of 440 but they will match the 419 price given to me by ntb... hopefully they will get it in before sat as I was planning on hitting the track for the first time.

I'm moving this to 5th gen general discussion...this really has nothing to do specifically with the v8 engine.

That totally sucks though man...I'd be pissed.

That sucks. The tire pressure warning is good for keeping you from driving off with a flat.

Save the flat, put a glass top on it and use it for an end table

They couldn't patch it? I'd have no problem driving around on a patched tire as long as it wasn't the sidewall.

A plugged tire works fine as long as it's done correctly
