As BroTruck/Rice as it may sound, I went that way on purpose because a white car with a bluish light always looked appealing and sporty to me. To each their own, but it always had an attractive look. I know 5-6k is where the best output is in the end, but, I don't regret the way it looks and I like it.

I'm running out of things to do. Lol. The only other thing I have coming is a new double din to replace the awful looking one which comes in the car ( Thanks Subaru )

LOL, I actually figured having the base model would make it easier. Had I gotten the premium or limited the headlamps already would have been black. I might have a few things up my sleeve coming soon though, stay tuned. If this goes through I will probably have a build thread coming up. (=

Nice work on the blacked out headlights. Those set it off just right. Much better than the chrome IMO.

So has anyone done tinting within the past year? Looking to finally get mine done, and I was looking at going with 2nd to None.

And what have I done to my car. . .nothing yet. But I did buy some parts!

Ive heard great things from 2nd To None. But personally, CCA gets my business and I reffer everyone to go there. Awesome guys, great work, and they stand behind it 100%

Always CCA for window tinting. Quality, price and customer support is unmatched.

Are you saying I should have labeled it 'before' and 'after'?

Actually, I was confused as to which was current since I couldn't recall which wheels you had on first. My bad. I should've noticed the winter versus summer tires... I was just glancing.

I am in the process of trying to get my bad turbo swapped out. Supplying pizza and beer for assistance.

Hit 80,000. I've owned it 9 months and have put less than 4k miles on it. I should drive more often.

Yes you should. We've had our FXT 10 months and have 9700 miles which is low still in my book.

Washed the car yesterday as the weather was way too nice not to, and I can't help but smile when I see it parked and shiny. Will be doing a welcome back spring detailing this coming weekend.
