Ordered this lugnuts as the ones that came with the studs are 17mm, and the only impact socket I was able to get to work only have a few thousands of clearance. Other than that one I have a Husky 17mm that will barely fit as well. I thought about doing a conversion from 14x1.5 to 12x1.5 but I used red loctite and don't want to deal with that mess right now. There are a few companies that have them out, Amazon only sells the 4 piece as lock nuts, but from what I could tell, they look just the same. The set of 20 was $65 after a discount before shipping, which was only $6 for two-day delivery.

Pb blaster soaking overnight has accidentally removed my red Loctite stud conversions before.

Was trying to take my front calipers off and a few studs started moving the next morning

Got some engine bay goodies in the mail today. ECS Tuning Carbon Fuse and Battery Covers, Racingline oil housing and dipstick, and Integrated Engineering Intake with carbon cover. Waiting on my carbon EQT engine cover and the engine bay should be about complete.

Be careful with that battery cover - @EpicTech can attest to that. Fire risk if I remember correctly.
Yep. Actual flames. Same ECS CF Battery cover. Mine was a little self inflicted because my cobb intake did not allow the lid cover to sit flush.

Another in my list of who cares items:

CT DMV test. Every two years $20 they hook up a tester to the OBD and check for codes. They are supposed to visual the cat but it never left the ground.

6 years 60K miles and for me it's a perfect DD. Still on the way to becoming the best car I have ever owned.
