Sure does. I'm not running it yet but I saw it. More info here:

I love my Plex. I've been using it for years and it just keeps getting better. I think one of these would help my remote access issues I run into occasionally when I want to watch what's on it from my other house.

I think I need to check one of these out especially if it has built-in storage where I can store my movies right on this where the Plex server resides.

Thanks for the share, I will check it out.

Its a pretty nice car but she isnt proactive in maintaining it so she wanted to replace it but now that Ive gotten a hold of it she is feeling better about it because Im going through and doing all of the maintenance that has been neglected for so long. I cant do that, seeing perfectly good vehicles decay due to bad maintenance triggers my OCD. Its not holding alignment well so this is the other "thing" I just bought, to be installed tomorrow:

Completely get it. My oldest, her sister, is driving home now to drop off her B8 A4. That was an AWESOME 1st car for her, but 4 years later, despite us paying all the bills while she's at college, it needs work, so over the next 3 weekends I have stuff to do before she's home for thanksgiving. It was WAY easier when I had the lift in the garage. Wish I didn't sell it.

For starters it needs both sides, upper and lower control arms. And her check engine light is flashing. After having a local to her garage check it, I think it's just oil pressure sensors, but they wanted $500 to change 2 $15 sensors.

LOL, her INDEDPENDENT shop wanted almost that much in labor to do plugs and coils (hers is a 4 banger). A 30 minute job even without the official coil puller.

Honestly its not about the money. For me its knowing its done right but also shit like that is INSULTING. Like Ill pay a pro money to do an actually hard job, but $500 to swap out 4 coils and plugs on a transverse 4 that isnt canted? F off!

I just received these today. My blue and white caps are looking pretty tattered so for 10 bucks on Amazon I thought, "Why not?". I'm not sure if you can read it but the description itself is almost worth the 10 bucks on it's own.
In case you can't make it out in the photo this is what is written on the card in the package, complete with original punctuation:

TIRE VALVES
DECORATE YOUR WHEEL

this is the fancy valve decorated cap with four electrons. which is made by metal material. which can instead of the original bad valve cap of the tyre, also show the beauty characteristic of the tyre.

Sweet. I love big luxo-cruisers. One of my favorite past cars was my 2001 740iL. Rode like a cloud and was fast AF.
