Took it to the stealership for new airbags and a wheel balance. Turns out the wheel is bent. Sweet.

Finally got the summer wheels on. Initial impressions of the Achilles tires are pretty good. A touch noisy, but the tread compound seems pretty soft and they gripped well when driving spiritedly on highway ramps. Carlisle was a bit swampy today...

Thanks, man. I always forget how good these wheels look on the car, even being a little rough around the edges.

Looks good. I just finished my install last night as well. Im having a little trouble tho as the driver side light seems dimmer and has less of a hotspot and less color in the cutoff than the passenger side. Im thinking its the bulb but i need to do some troubleshooting.

What kind of headlights were these done on?

How tough was the oil pan gasket in your case?

It can possibly be the bulb. I am not understanding your question? These were Stock/OEM Bi-Xenon Headlights

Sorry i meant what car. Clearly sedan headlights from the pics. I think the bulb is the issue since i swapped them around and it followes. I did mine on the adaptive facelift coupe lights. Going to order some phillips Xtreme Vision Gen2 bulbs.

Mine are sports seats.
I was very specific on the order that I did not have a coupe and did not need the hole for the the lever.
I'll try and post a picture tomorrow.

Edit : says I don't have permission to post a picture in this thread. I'll try and post in the seat thread later.

I put some dielectric grease on all four o-rings of the diagnostic pump. Ive had a p1447 code for a while. Hope this works. Also put some brighter LED bulbs in the C pillars.

Got most of the way through my exhaust replacement. PPO had a fart can/eBay/ no name exhaust on it which sounded terrible. Picked up a used OEM one on eBay for $130. Ran out of time but she’s almost there...

It wasn't totally brittle but the pan leaked at the corners, like the factory RTV started to fail.
