I am fixing to pull the trigger on rotors and pads. I'm planning on getting the Centric High Carbon rotors. Is there a reason you chose Akebono instead on the PosiQuiets? I'm torn between the two.

Before I had my grille wrapped I had plasti-dipped it to make sure I liked the look. I had no problems when I washed it (even spraying it off at touchless car washes), just be careful.

My tires are flush. There's one dip on the interstate where I've rubbed twice with a passenger in the front seat, but that's it. I've never had any issues around town with a passenger, though. If I...

I think they are definitely good looking cars.
I don't like the iPad stuck on the dash type screens. But, the main thing for me would be that it's FWD, unless you get the quattro.

I went with 245/35 and 275/30. The front is probably a bit too aggressive as I barely rub on super hard turns. 235/35 would be ideal. But, nothing that has really been an issue. It looks much better....

I'd say it's pretty random and not to worry. It wouldn't hurt to get all service history. Granted, anything can happen, but I've had my 2014 350 F Sport for 2 1/2 years with 27K miles and no issues...
