Drove into Toronto on the hottest day....yikes!! Made it from Peterborough to Bayview and Eglinton in 70 minutes. Bought a wicked winter setup for a steal. Spent 2 hours getting home, 1 hour going from Scarborough to Oshawa. I played gastank chicken on the way home, I didn't want to pay Toronto prices for gas. The gas light and countdown icon came on in the display(good to know that it counts down from 60km remaining). Made it into the Shell in Peterborough and filled up with V-Power for $1.33. I unloaded my tires and stored them, and I am still sweating in an air conditioned house. Going to clean alloys and tires this week.

Nice winter set up! Never too soon to be ready. I need to order my winter tires next month. Set up the deal in May!! Hopefully the next winter will be like this one...not much of one! All the best!

Cool

Installed APR rear sway bar yesterday and today returned to Goodyear Tire to have them purge the original Nitro Fill and do over. Had the purity checked elsewhere and they were less than 94% pure.

Thanks guys! I'm thrilled. I paid $400 CAD. At least 3 years left on the tread. The rims will be a nice upgrade on the steelies.

Wash and wax. The car looks great but I have a couple spots of tar from some road construction that I need to take care of soon.

Installed my Unibrace XB. Like others have mentioned, took about 4 hours total. Very nice upgrade and definitely increased cornering stability. Thanks Bruce!

Ok so I took my hub caps off today (base model '12 United Grey), wife hates it and thinks it looks like white-trash. I'm still waiting on rims as the highway I travel to work is under heavy construction until spring 2013. Anyone else running on steelies? Any general thoughts on the appearance of running w/o hub caps? Also, I have very dark tint and plasti-dipped badges. Cheers!

Plasti-dip your steelies a cool gunmetal or matte back.

Regular air is 78% Nitrogen, anyway, and it's FREE!
