I was driving a bit slower and didn't have many stops from the time I took off to about my house over about a 10 mile period and used cruise control to adjust speed if needed. I had the stock rims in the car and they were making a lot of noise bouncing around. So I went slower.
I've had almost 49mpg but its been awhile. I hope this alignment and new tire setup keeps me up there in those numbers.

And if I can find another set maybe darker, my wife wanted some for her forester. She was skeptical at first, but not now.

Thank you!
There's a lot to be done to make it show worthy, but what rally inspired car isn't a bit dirty?

Its has tint, but needs redone. Rally armors, I broke one of my old ones off and riding with 3 just doesn't look right. And light bar yeah, waiting to see if a rally innovations one goes on sale or someone selling a setup in the forums. Id also like to get sways.

If I get tint put on, I might as well get the tails done in the red triangle pattern. But who does a good job around here at a good price?

I'm not sure I'm"qualified" to do that. Id probably end up doing it a little crooked. Haha

Well had to buy a new tire tonight on my wifes forester. Was headed into McAllen to see the circus with my wife and son, about 75 we hear a small "pftttt" sound and the front right side dropped slightly. And it conviently happened right at the Pharr exit right before the overpass. Was able to stop safely and change out the spare. I think the dealership gave me the wrong sized spare because once I put it on that was struggling to stay up despite being properly inflated.

Took it slow back up McColl and wanted to stop at discount tires but they were closed. Luckily the guy at wal-mart said he could fit one last vehicle in. So that ruined my plans tonight and another $130 on a tire.

But on the plus side, I destroyed a brand new mazda 6 that was trying to show off on the way home. I took him easily 0-70 but I slowed down waited for him to catch his 4 car lengths. He just kept speeding. He wouldn't even look our way at the next light. Just slowly cruised in shame.

Also, if anyone else wants to sell their 2011 wrx wheels, my wife would like some for her forester. She's jealous of how good they look on my car.

Also looking for a 2.5rs if anyone fines a local one for sale.

I havent raced bike in awhile, but i'd stay away from the beach for this month... Morning might be okay, but at night it takes 2-3 hrs just to cross the bridge over the causeway! Horrible, nasty kids throwing stuff at your car, dings galore, ive seen some crazy stuff there.
