  • Late night Krispy Kreme run. Mmm.... doughnuts.... Anyway, I put my car on the scale on the way back and it read 1660 kg with 5/8 of a tank of gas, 1 driver, 3 empty child seats, and a dozen glazed doughnuts (half of them in the driver).

  • Took measurements again of the sport suspension and after almost a month and a half, there is no settling. The drop is still 1.5"

  • Rotated tires. I took the opportunity to compare the stock wheel/tire combo with the aftermarket ones I bought. I know, I know...only after 3 years of ownership! I'd like to get some new 17" wheels and I definitely want to choose something that will be lighter than what I have now.
