Brake dust is an eye sore and more of a PITA to clean off the wheel crevices.

I don't remember the 2IS having this much brake dust. This one dusts like crazy. It makes it look like I have matte black wheels in the front and shiny black wheels in the rear. Lol. Hmm...maybe it's good practice to clean the wheels after every use.

There was post on here about how you can request different pads that would not produce much dust. You may want to search and see if your dealer would address this.

New picture for the thread: The hidden bumper behind the F-Sport grille isn't so hidden after driving through the snow.

(Sorry, no idea why it's upside down or why CL is flipping the picture when I upload it.)

Good thing is that my wheels are black. If they were the regular alloys, it'd probably drive me even more nuts. Hmm...I'll look into it though. Thanks.

Hi

Yes when you get the windows tinted they do remove that sticker.

Been awhile since I posted a new pic of my black beauty. This was taken today very early morning as the sun was starting to come up. Just love that front grille on the black car

I tried to go as long as I could with the paper plates for my ride, but threw on my license plate a few months later.

Ha you found me!!! I was at Coffee Bean. By the way that little tiny bit of light of my left bumper is a reflection. I just had the car polished (hand waxed) last week by my detailer so its look extra shiny and wet!!!

I am really bad, i like to leave my paper plates on for a year, cause if I take them off then the car does not look new anymore!!

My car still gets double and triple looks when i drive by. Its that aggressive front, there really is nothing else like it on the road right now.

How is your tint doing? Were you happy with Sunshield's work?? My windows look pretty dark there but you can see enough of the red interior in my opinion.

Haha. Good to know.

Nice pics of your ride. Do you find yourself parking far from curb a lot? With the cinder blocks in parking stalls, I always park far. Lol.
