Thanks, wow they are great looking rims. Too bad they were only made for sit/and 19in (19in just looks too big for me). But thanks for the info, at least solved my curiosity.

So got my car back from the stealership, all they did was regrease the clutch pedal assembly since they could not replicate the sound , however they did replace my battery with a new one. The cold cranking amps were half of what they needed to be to pass so I got this. I also think its funny that they reconnected my grounding kit, hella-horn harness, and hid kit

Also the new gift(s), yes I know my paint is coming off my lip

Got my car back from dealership- they did the big 30,000 mile maintenance today (Thurs).
Main stuff was replacing brake fluid.. replacing diff fluid front and rear.. replacing spark plugs, checking antifreeze -Subaru blue super coolant, tested to -34 degrees however they do that I do not know..

I had an oil change due soon so I did that too. My brakes are still like new I guess- 10mm front, 8mm rear, I do baby them because I downshift a lot. My car is running sweet still and the brake pedal feels slightly firmer which is nice.

I'm good for quite a while on big maintenance stuff.. They wanted to do a fuel system - throttle body cleaning procedure. I guess it isn't a bad idea, maybe next oil change. 80 bucks seems like a lot to spray some crap on my throttle body though.. if that's hat he was talking about. I dunno.. maybe I'll just do it.

Wow 80 is cheap I got quoted 120. My garage does charge 125/hr though. (Thinking I got ripped off) lol.

Anybody have Delta cams here and experience any problems? Read some good things about open source tunes with those cams.

So that was the throttle body cleaning? Or did they call it a "fuel system" cleaning? Just wondering. The guy I talked to was actually pretty cool, he called it a fuel system cleaning, but also mentioned the throttle body.

eBay haha. I got it for $80 shipped, has decent quality so I can't complain. I would much rather chip/break this one rather than the $200+ lip from the stealership
