White Sportwagen. I'm on H&R Springs/Koni Yellows and the ride is fine in the West Valley. Mild drop - 1.5 or so. Makes the handling so much better.

is Tucson safe to live in? if not, which area is safest to live in? going graduate school within few months
You just need to live in the better areas of Tucson. Like all cities, there are good and bad places or North of the city or there is a new area South that is growing but still doesn't have all the conveniences

Dirt and Hot paint

prospecting AZ resident.. how do the cars fair down there as far as exterior cleanliness? I know theres not much rain, but how about the red dust..
I've lived in the area since the '70s and had every color vehicle you can think of, Black, Maroon, Red, Dark Blue, White, Silver, Parchment, etc. Yep, we can get some blowing dust. And we can get two forms of rain the stuff that enough to turn a car into a spotted mud ball and the torrential Monsoon rain.

The thing is as far as the dirt they all get dirty, darker colors show up more dirt. But prep your paint and treat it with F11 Top Coat and all of it generally blows off or plain water just sheets the dirt off... yep even our hard water.​

Now I have seen a lot of questions about which colors to have on your car and which paint colors get hot.

Go for the color you like. The darker the paint or more red in it makes it hotter to the touch quicker but it all gets toasty enough to fry an egg in the summer. As far as inside - you need some good IR reflective tint and some sun shields on the front windshield and of course AC. Park it out of the sun as much as you can. Of course, you need good paint /wax protectant to shield the paint from the UV (and air pollution - though not as high as a lot of states) as the intense UV will wreck any color paint.​

Can anyone recommend a place to get an intake valve carbon cleaning done? Just passed 76K, fuel economy and idle been getting a little worse over time. I drive a lot in traffic so I can see it being a problem.

Service cost looks pricey but willing to pull the trigger if its the right spot. Can go anywhere in the valley or Tucson if need be.

Thanks

This might be a long shot, but if anyone is looking for a spare stock tire (tire only) I have one available and free if you want to pick it up (Scottsdale).

I had replaced the stock tires in Feb. this year with Indy500's and Firestone said the 1 tire was oddly in really good condition and asked if i wanted to keep it as a spare. I got rid of the GTI last month (2019 C43 AMG) and don't have any need for it taking space in my garage!
