Does realoem have the weight for items like the CD changer and DVD nav? I can't seem to find it.

Thank you. I will do the battery when mine goes.

Mr. Wolfe
Well, if you're doing both, some fabbing required. I started out with the R-9232 above and then make some straps to wrap the battery.

Obio, been thinking about removing the valve stem caps on my 46 OE 18's. Would appreciate your opinion on the nuances of driving in the twisties without the caps. I realize these don't weigh very much, but it's weight on the wheel and that's where it really helps, right? Thanks in advance!

Technically that would be worse— the inverse of adding downforce

Wait what? Helium in the tires would be just like having lighter tires/wheels... I don’t see why there would be a lift component.
