    What is the weight difference between the new rims and stock ones?

    How are the Dunlop Sportmaxx tires? Have you pushed them yet?

    Has it been a week with the short shifter yet? Give us an update on it!

    Minimal weight difference. Stock forged bbs wheels come in at a respectable 20lbs.

    Haven't had a chance to test the tires, poor weather here.

    Update on the shifter coming soon.

    What has your fuel economy been like since going Stage 1 and putting the new wheels on?

    Went from 24 to 23. Can't complain. Runs and rides smoother now.

    Got my alignment done today. Came out nice. Had a nice (rainy) drive home. First time with the new suspension and wheels/tires in the rain. Much improved over stock.

    Installed new fender badges last night. Couple of quick cell phone pics below. They match the brakes nicely.

    Those fender badges make a bigger positive difference than most people give them credit for!

    Not much to report. We continue to have crap weather on and off so I haven't put too many miles on it lately. This past weekend I was busy supporting my wife running her first full marathon. She did great. 4hrs 19mins which I think is pretty good given that she is not a "natural athlete" and doesn't have a lot of time to train. Given the shortage of time we are dropping our gym membership since I got her a treadmill over the weekend. As someone who likes to find good deals you'll like this one...we went to buy a used commercial unit and were looking at about $2k till it was all said and done. I called my buddy hours before buying it and he tells me he has one he just got for free that I can have. I look up the model and it was $5k in 2014...umm yeah I'll take it bud. He didn't want to take anything but long story short I'm only out about $200 for a basically new $5k treadmill. Moving that 360lb monster was a chore though.

    Back to the car...at the next oil change I will be installing my oil pressure gauge. Beyond that I don't have much in store before I buy my full turboback exhaust and get a protune. I'm still kicking around going flex fuel now that I have an option that is pretty close by. Not sure I want to get into all of that though. Pretty substantial investment, we'll see.
