Default What did you do to your LS430 today?

I realize that LS430 forum is missing this standard thread

I will start first...
Checked coolant level. There is coolant in the radiator but the reservoir was empty. I added distilled water for now. Will watch to see if there is a leak or just evaporation.
Radiator will be flushed and filled at 90 K.

I washed the dust off off. I was supposed to get my fog lights tinted but my tint guy wasn't at the shop today.

Drove it around the city in the beautiful spring weather playng tunes, then came home and ordered:

- 4 brake sensors
- Front and rear OEM pads from dealer
- 1 touch up pen
- 4.5 x 12 inch exhaust tips ( after realizing the 3x12 inch tips I ordered yesterday are going to be too small )

Those tips should look amazing. I forgot to mention that the design of the tip can make even big tips look small. I saw some 4.5 inch tips at a local parts store and they looked massive compared to mine.

Changing oil with Liqui Mollie synthetic 5W30, oil filter and oil filter housing seal.
Full car inspection.

took my snow tires off myself ... a job that just keeps getting harder, lol
Took the last two out of the trunk and into storage.

I forgot how much quieter the Michelins are than these snow tires!

Just checked tire PSI's and also the fluids. I did get some WS ATF and will again attempt a drain and fill next weekend. I have 6 quarts and will measure what comes out and will replace with the same amount...

Replaced batteries in both keys and it seems to have fixed a problem that I thought was actuators going bad. WHEW! Much cheaper outcome!

Washed and waxed the car after a long time. Glad to see it shining.
Used Meguiar's G6107 White Wax for the first time. Good replacement for smelly Collinite 845.

Installed Weathertech side window deflectors on the front and rear windows. Got the light tint on them and it matches my window tint very closely. Installation was easy. Great quality product.
