    Hello everyone! I tend to go by Zohli online whether it be gaming/forums/social media/etc.

    First car I owned was a 99 Ford Lightning while I was in highschool (horrible choice for a first car, might I add...) I drove the shit out of that car until the motor blew 3/4 years later due to a bad headgasket.

    I traded the lightning in and purchased a 2013 Subaru WRX and owned that for under a year before the motor spun a bearing under warranty (only 60k miles) went through a nightmare getting it fixed, then I got the car back after 2 months and the replacement motor started showing the same symptoms! Carmax gave me all my money back for my car towards the purchase of a new car.

    So I bought a 2011 Explorer Limited (4WD) and haven't really looked back since that day. I do miss being fast, but it's a really nice car so I can't complain. I have had the Explorer for a little over a month now and have just been loving it every day. I work at BMW and had our Alloy Wheel Repair guy do my wheels gloss black, and they look pretty sick. That's my only mod so far, but I've got a bit of a to-do list so I'll be posting updates as time goes on.

    Look forward to chatting with you all, happy to be here!
