      Nicely done. Hope you don't have the same experience, but when I installed those alum lock pulls they developed an annoying little rattle against the ring insert.

      Used the last of my Osram Rallye 65W stash (they're discontinued now) to upgrade my high beams.

      Whooo those rims though and exterior, looking sharp man. Would be a shame if some small rocks on the highway let something happen to them...

      Was a good looking group you guys had there.
      I was a little sad today to pull the sticker off. I had to do it quickly as the neighbors all probably thought I was geeky for leaving it on but the rest of the day was busy and I was wiped! Till next time...

      Looking very nice. Going to the IPD show this year which is a 21 hour drive. Might think about Carlisle for next year, but that will take a bunch of planning.

      I have a cluster that needs to be parted out that I think has a cover that's better than this one. That bothers me every mileage shot too lol.

      0w40 being thicker actually robs a little power.

      Nothing wrong with Castrol, I sue it my my Mazda (10w30) and in our Saturn (5w30). I need to see what other weights Costco caries because they have the best prices I can find.

      Annoyingly they don't have 0w40 which is the only euro spec synthetic that Castrol offers in the US. Walmart has it for $23 for a 5 qt jug however

      Interesting that Walmart would be the one to carry it, I don't usually buy auto stuff there. At least there is a Walmart about 5 minutes from my house.

      Finally got my europlate mounts all the way from Latvia. I like the iron mark on these. B5234T3 is the 99 T5 engine code

      Found the noise in the dash....



      Replaced my shattered cluster and installed the rings I've had forever



      And the real reason for this project was to get the Dolby center channel installed



      I honestly can tell the difference it makes but it's so minimal on most music that it's really just a cosmetic enhancement. You need true 5.1 recorded audio (certain Pink Floyd albums for example) to get the real effect. Is cool though.
