If you want supertones but don't want to flaunt them, why not paint them black?
Great Idea. It looks like I might have to find that grill on car-part.com im not paying $220 for that lol

Also while looking through that site if found this. wow look at the price $700 is not bad for a set. Then I read "price is for ONE WHEEL"

Are you sure about that?

According to THIS, OBS is only 0.2" taller than 2.5i & that's because OBS has 205/50R17 tires (2.5i has 205/55R16) which exactly 0.2" taller in diameter.

I believe 08-11 OBS & 2.5i have EXACT same springs.

Changed my spark plugs this weekend. Was at 42k original. Wow, cant believe the difference. Car runs so much smoother now, especially on the highway.

I take it they weren't changed at 30k... I would imagine it would seem better if they weren't changed when recommended.

Hey Jordan. How did you first get into AutoX? What was your first time like? How would I go about "training/preping" for it?

You'll lose torque and gain sound.

If it's sound you want get a muffler delete or something. It's cheap.

(BTW you asked pretty much the same question before)

Thanks. Roger that, I did touch on the subject a while back; thought I read somewhere that it could decrease longevity of the engine. Just wanted to get current consensus from SME's...
