Following on from the 'USA Cleaning Mit Club': I washed the car tonite. No real biggy but A) it's easier to do so when it's raining, or at least has been (get some funny looks though), and the car is already wet and B) I find I get less - if any - streaks or runs afterwards. Possibly rain water is better than tap water for washing cars ?....

Don't forget the exhaust tips! I judge you solely on how clean your tips are.

Yep no problems on that score, however I did find that I could only just get the iphone6 in compartment with the connector inserted. Think the 6+ would be impossible to fit in with the lid closed so as to out of view.

I got 15% tint on the back windows and 28% on frt. I also had them put clear on the frt. windshield and the sunroof to block the UV rays. I can really tell a difference when I get into the car now. Black car + black int. = hot car! Saving up to do the APR tune or springs next. - Lance
