Moved back to Seattle and had the car shipped. Finally got it tonight after being without a car for the last few weeks. Feelsgoodman. Car is incredibly dirty from the journey but looking forward to getting it cleaned up to my standards.

Wanted to post a few more updates.

New Michelin Pilots being installed


Iíve been trying to diagnose what sounds like a ground loop whining noise that gets louder as RPMs climb. Currently has an aftermarket stereo so I pulled it to see if maybe it wasnít grounded correctly.

Has anyone experienced this? Thinking maybe the ground through wiring harness is insufficient and needs to be connected directly to chassis? Also, are these cables the m-bus and power connector? Iím thinking they could not be culprit since no power is going through them? I will most likely be going with the CD43 but would like to solve this for the time being.





Washed and sealed with new OEM center caps. The old style sticker center cap delaminated and local dealer said the sticker was NLA. Found them online but prefer the new style. Optimum tire dressing went on a little glossy but became perfectly matte after a few hours.



Anyone have a defect-free center vent they would like to sell? Bought this on eBay but the paint on the vent was chipping, so itís going back. Might just end up buying a new unit.
