Default What did you get for Christmas?

I also wanted to start a thread about what you all got for Christmas and Holidays? Any good car parts? Other cool goodies?

Post up some pics of what you got


I have to live vicariously through you all this year. I didnt get anything this year but a couple of gift cards and muffins hehe. Which I am thankful for regardless

Chelsea (wife) said she would put $100 towards any car parts I want (probably gonna use that to pay for 10% of the wheels. haha)

Got a Welder and electronic dimming helmet.

Steadicam for my GoPro, and I bought myself a 32" tv for the garage.

Got a small jar of Vegemite. Something fun for my Aussie family.

I got a suunto ambit 3. Basically accumulated 500 bucks of random gift credit cards and cash so definitely going to put that into a project car.

Oh man I've been wanting that Lego Mini. So great.

I got new floor mats (mine were developing murderous intent and were trying to recruit my pedals to mutiny), a Mini flat cap, Mini sweatshirt, and an S grille badge. I also got myself a few little things like a new Cravenspeed phone mount to fit my iPhone 6, LED bulbs for my license plate and running/parking lights, and Silverstar Sylvania fog light bulbs. I'm hoping all my light temperatures will match rather than have the Xenon be cool white and my fog lights be warm yellow.

Besides Mini stuff I also got a set of Copic markers, whiskey stones, and my 91 year old grandmother made me a pair of fantastic and gigantic pajama pants. I love that woman. Merry Christmas, folks.

I got a WMW Intake and a set of Euro arches, though they won't be here till March.

Also got a new memory card for the camera and a grip. Feels legit now.

Vegemitr: the key is to put it on thin. We only lay lay it on thick when we are trying to make foreigners pull funny faces...

I got the Lego mini too! Also got a random-orbital polisher. Woo!

Oh yeah...plus we had a baby girl three weeks ago, so sorta focused on that

Sweet. Christmas baby. And I know about Vegemite. But I will definitely enjoy watching my friends and co-workers "try" it. haha. I had it when I was a kid, but haven't had it in years.

I have 11 year old definitive tech bp-10s and bp-8s. 'Bi-polar' (horrible name!) Floor speakers. They are still wonderful. Best speakers I've ever owned.

I scored bigtime this year, nothing but awesome gifts. Got a new 5-piece luggage set so my girlfriend and I have some good stuff for upcoming travel plans, a sweet TOPO Designs puffer vest, a pass to autocross a Ferrari F360 or Lamborghini Gallardo, a Jigsaw for some projects, various clothes, gift cards, and other goodies... good stuff for sure. Oh, and here are pics because pics are better than words.
