Excellent. Best part was the car (oops, I'm supposed to say it was my wife, huh..)

haha. yeah i was looking at those pictures, with her sitting in the car and she's probably just like my wife like "oh my god, are you seriously taking another picture of your car again?"

you're just like "huh? what?? no. God no.. just you know.. the scenery and of course YOU."

check your gas filler cap. iirc, it's a 2-trip code for the CEL so a good trip or two of similar conditions (rpm, load, warm engine, etc) should clear it automatically.

Cool, thanks for chiming in. What are we supposed to make of the date, huh?! 2009.17.16... There's neither a 17th or 16th month of the year haha, much less that it's 2012! The car was built in Nov '11...

I suspect the PCM has its own date and time which gets reset when the battery is unplugged. I didn't see a way to set it in vcds.


Mobile brevity mistakes and all that.

Just put down $664 on a winter setup. Michelin Xi2's on closeout for $121/piece on steelies for $34/piece. Happy with the deal, should last me four winters and all that time to save for k04!

Funny how I'm focusing on wheels atm. You might notice on my build page (OP) that wheels weren't even on my radar, now I have both a dedicated winter setup and a summer wheel waiting for worn stockers and their own rubber.

Nurbs are here!! Can't wait for spring!



Until then, though, I'm rocking the steelies. I actually really like the look! And man, these Michelin Xi2's are comfortable. And quiet! They must be the quietest tires I've ever had on any one of my cars. Cons so far? Marshmallow steering - that feeling when you turn the wheel and wait a while before you start heading in the other direction. Overall very happy.
