I'm the wrong guy to ask. I'm getting gunmetal most likely. I feel those are pretty common though.

And my hatch is the same color.

I should wait until the OEMs wear out, but we'll see how long that lasts .

Got my baby's oil and filter replaced for the first time this morning, using Mobil 1 0W-20 and an OEM filter. Goodbye metal shavings, hello smooth sailing.

Why you no text me back!

Went and got an alignment done today, got me some negative camber going on all around. Guess that is what I get for lowering my car! To buy camber arms or to not buy camber arms, that is the question...

Got in touch with Derrick at CorkSport about getting another Graphite Compression Gasket so I can fix my rear exhaust leak, will have that hand delivered to me tomorrow for 11 bucks!

Still trying to diagnose my cars rear suspension creaks and such. Mechanic doing my alignment helped me with some suggestions on what could be the problem.

Hopefully my local dealer will have my front grill replacement in tomorrow so I can install it tomorrow night, don't feel like going to the CorkSport meet with a messed up front grill.

Prepping to leave to head down the San Marcos tomorrow has made me create a list of stuff so I wont forget...
