I've never done it and I drive my cars into the ground but then again, I typically only drive about 12K a year. Couldn't hurt I guess but I don't like that they drill holes into your doors and such....

it's not unheard of to have no rust on a 7 year old car if it's been taken care of. Also depends on if your garage is heated or not.

On my last car, a 93 integra, there was literally no rust...

to be fair, you're comparing a G37 against an IS250

the true comparison is G37 vs IS350... and they are both really fast :)

yeah, maybe you should reconsider getting an S4 if you'll have a 350 sitting idle... that seems more wasteful to me

unlocking the car using the door handles shouldn't set off the alarm. There is definitely something wrong. Take it to the dealer as they might need to connect it to their computer and adjust a...

that doesn't sound normal

Is there an aftermarket alarm or are you just touching the sensors in the front door handles to unlock the car?

Without doing any research whatsoever, I have a hard time believing that a 3 year old car with only 14K miles on it is worth less than the buyout. Did you put nothing down when you leased it?

if you do create a clean spot, then just clean the entire headliner. It doesn't look dirty, but it is. Like LS430Fl says, just spray folex (easy to get at Home Depot) onto a terry cloth (rougher than...

I run those staggered sizes in summer in 18's and drop down to 17's with 225/45 for winter.
