Thanks. The rims are 18" Staggered Enkei LM1's that I bought on CL classifieds from "cyclemax" I'm very happy with them the offsets are perfect without spacers. I'm also definatly having some tiens installed by Exact I just wanna see what the different types feel like beforehand.

Now if you see me cruising around, be sure and say whats up.

Default 15K tune-up @ Exact Motorsports - SC430

Big props to Exact Motorsports.

Per RMMGS4, Exact Motorsports had a good reputation w/ quality service, maintenance and performance mods. They sure lived up to their name when I had my SC430 serviced today.

Granted, I could have gone to anywhere for service, but I wanted to try out this place since I've heard their name mentioned from previous threads and other CL members' recommendation.

It all started when I purchased an '03 SC430 and had the dealership do the free 5K oil change.
After some wear and tear, about 10-15K miles on her, I noticed the tire pressure light flashed on many occassions. I would stop by the gas station, check the PSI on all four tires and there's that one rear right tire that kept losing about 20 PSI's a week. I usually fill all 4 tires to 39-41 PSI.
This gas station thing went on for about a year. I got sick of it.

Then, about a month now, my steering wheel started to rattle and shake even at around 35-45mph. I'm like, OH GREAT! Not another thing to worry about. Also, she felt sluggish off the block and I wasn't getting the same power when I first bought her.

So I talked to RMMGS4 and he suggested I give Exact M. a call. I called several other places but nothing sounded good compared to Exact M.

I took her in today and did the following:

oil change (changed over to Synthetic Oil - Mobile 1)
transmission fluid
checked the brakes
tire balance & rotation

The surprising thing was that they found a nail in the right rear wheel and I didn't even see it when I was checking my tires every time I lost the PSI's. I have spun the rear wheels about 10 times (Dunlop DSST 5000 run craps) and have lost more thread on them compared to the front ones. The nail must have dug itself all the way into the grain even from 1 feet away I wasn't able the nail.

While spending 2 hours at Exact M., as they worked on her, I lit up a nice fat stoogie to pass the time.

Finally, she was ready for the road. I took her out and from the get go, she felt more powerful than ever. I barely pressed the gas pedal and she took off like a rocket. The steering problem was fixed and she sounded so much nicer.

I'm planning to change out the Dunlop run craps w/ the Michelin PS2's soon.

Exact Motorsports knows their sh-t and they tell you like it is. No hidden agenda or any secrets.
They are experts in their field and it shows. Their friendliness and professionalism carries over to their attitude upon meeting them and the pride and confidence that they take while working on their customers' vehicles. The facility is clean and spacious and easy to get to. They seem to be up-to-date w/ the lastest and greatest in toys, gadgets, products and technology for any type of modications, performance or servicing that one is looking for.

I'm planning to take my baby over to Exact M. on a regular basis from now on.

Thanks RMMGS4 for the recommendation.
Thanks EXACT M. for the exceptional service, quality and dedication that you provide to your customers.

I went there at lunch time today and ran into two other members (Jawnthen & LexAnt) plus there were two more other Lexi getting worked on.

That place is getting a lot of our business lately.

Wow! that's great to hear.

Let me tell you after they changed my oil to synthetic, I noticed a more aggressive subtle roar in my engine. I noticed the difference today after I started the car this morning. It's been sittng for a few days and as soon as I started her up, the engine sounding more aggressive and the gas pedal felt real good.

the tune up from Exact M. gave my car a better response, ride and balance overall.

Boy, what a difference that made!

I can't wait to take her for future tuning and maintenance.
