    Do you have the kanji for aiko handy?
    There are several meanings for that reading, but I never heard beloved before.

    愛顧, aiko=patronage
    相子, aiko=draw, tie
    愛好, aikou = love and adoration

    最愛, saiai= beloved also, but Aiko is a much cooler name

    Sweet ride

    that third thing is kinda like beloved, RIGHT? Oh, it says aikou. Honestly, I'm not Japanese and got it from one of them name sites/books. Heh. I think there were like three or four places that had the same meaning. Where can you see those kanji things the way they're supposed to look? (the above didn't really turn out for me)

    EvilCerealBoX - If my car was on some site....it's news to me. Bask Oner is a little correct, but C'MON there's not many options for wagon lips. AND, my OZ/Prodrive P1s don't at all look like his gram lights.

    PhreeZe - heh...good Christmas for me (self-gifting); a little less so to everyone else...MUA HAH HAH hah....

    trainrex - Well, it went in with the UP/DP/catback. Yeah, I felt a difference, but from where? My UTEC is still running untuned and boost is probably on the low side of 15 psi. The weather's been weird for road tuning (cold, dense air causing some lean run) and my laptop is sucking ballz right now. I should be dynoing in a few months. It definitely DOES spool sooner, but that also has something to do with the catless UP.

    Thanks every1!!

    Good thing you didn't notice my switch from UK300's to JDM lights. You might try and turn my accusations around on me!

    If you are using Windows XP pro (maybe home too I don't know), just right click on the page, then select "encoding" and click on "Japanese". If that option isn't available, then you haven't installed support for E.Asian languages. Sorry it looks all messed up. Actually, I looked it up in a proper names dictionary, and there must be dozens of definitions in there. Probably one of them hits close enough How about "Favorite Child"
