      You want a wider tire, not taller. More "meat" on the tire will help protect the rim edge. A meaty tire can also provide a more aggressive look.

      Some manufacturers build in a rim protector,...

      Dr. Colorchip. They will send you a kit that will fill paint voids and mask the damage. Once dry, any clear film over those areas will prevent further chipping.

      Not a bad look - it's reminiscent of those badgeless grills popular on GM SUVs.

      But I agree something is needed to break up the uniformity. A thin line, whether painted or a mechanical...

      Considering the fluctuation between levels from lower to higher on successive days, I don't trust that sensor. I'd assume that what you see on the screen is meant to mimic the...

      I'd think an expanded or perforated sheet, or wire mesh cut to size behind the grill would solve the problem of dented fins. I wouldn't be too concerned about airflow through the grill to the...

      It's really tough to diagnose a suspension sound over the net. What one may describe a clank, another could call a rattle, and a third a clicking...

      A quick trip to google suggests that the oil trap is part of the positive crankcase ventilation ("PCV") system. No clue where the "blockage" is located, but it's probably the cyclone separator, or...

      This is what I was thinking. Overboost would certainly cause a limp mode. Could be anything, though, that regulates pressure, but maybe the wastegate is sticking closed a hair longer than normal...

      You need to have the car scanned to determine what fault code is triggering the CEL. A simple OBDII scanner probably won't work here.

      From the noise and area you describe, could be a failing...

      Pads should not be loose in the calipers. A properly functioning brake system will have the pads remain in contact with the rotor at all times. You can confirm this by removing the front wheel and...

      Any exhaust options, other than Heico? Larger downpipe, mid pipe with high flow cats, cat back? Not looking for sound; instead, freer flowing exhaust. Exhaust the same for T5 and T6? maybe T6...

      I get having larger brakes on your NSX, but are you intending to track your 5000+ pound T8? What exactly will this "kit" offer? Better braking ability; fill out the insides of the wheel; both? If...

      T5? Sorry to ask, but I'm not sure if 12.3" is standard on every T6.

      Seti, no sweat, and no need for apologies. I'd hope the cost to swap doesn't approach anywhere near $6K. The part alone cost $585, and I'm sure I can remove the old and install the new, so I could...
