Took her to TireRack for new shoes. Continental PureContacts. Little more noise and little rougher ride than the OE Michelins. Hopefully better wear and more winter traction will make up for it.

Very clean, nice job. Btw where did yu get the fsport wheels and are they the same offset? Do they rub at all? Also is the overall diameter the same as stock?

Those beautiful sexy dreamy rims are also on ebay now.




I want them so bad, but I know the streets of NYC will eat them up between the pot holes and the salt and grim, or I'll wake up one morning and they'll magically disappear.

I got a crazy good deal on eBay. Only 1 has a medium rash but the rest is all nice. They are not staggered but 19x8 on all 4 corners. 5mm more inward and 1mm more outward but no rubbing at all.
Tires are 255/45/19. Not 255/35/19 like stated before.

Alright it looks like I am finally done with my steering wheel ordeal. I first had the wood grain pianted in jet black, it looked great but unfortunately it kept chipping. Then I had it vinyl wrapped and it felt like crap.

Well finally I sent it in to be professionally redone with the shift ****. Here is the finished product Piano black wood! They also redid the leather around the steering wheel and made it more ample. It looks amazing!

I took my roof rack off and replaced the tailgate struts in the cargo door since it wouldn't stay up any more (that's what she said, lol).

I will see if I can get some by this weekend. I finally got it installed today. I am also changing my black leather seats to red, but this should be done by end of next month.

Sorry the car is a mess and I still have to do a few things to it. As you can also see I haven't added back the new shift ****.

Question Washing

Hey Adam,

I know it's an old thread and all. Not sure if you are still an active member, but a question to you or anyone else who might know: How do you wash your car with the roof wrapped in vinyl?

I know it's recommended to hand wash and to avoid pressure washers, but do you really have to wash your car all by hand every time?

Thank you!

This is not an old thread, but a recent and fairly active thread.

Where did you get this done and how much? Thanks.

Default Just Bought RX330

Bought an 06 Rx330 with 66K 10 days ago. I noticed oil on the driveway shortly after getting it home. Ended up changing the rack and pinion and outer tie rods. Had a bunch of warning lights going off in the dash so changed the brake light switch. Front brake pads were to the bottom so changed them. Had new tires installed--Bridgestone Alenzas, which I found I like-fairly quiet ride. After alignment, oil change and got a transmission flush with BG treatment, the car is driving awsome. That rack and pinion was a SOB. Don't wish that one on anyone and hope the Cardone rebuilt unit holds up and is worth the 550 bucks.
