kinda boring update.
I got the alignment done last fall, everything was on specs. Fast forward one week ago, found a ****ing screw at the junction of the sidewall section just before our holidays where we intend to drive 1200km. Rushing to a tire shop, the guy doesn't recommend to fix the tire because of the sidewall load/movement. So I put one winter tire on and we drove away.
Now looking at the wear on the tire... WTF is this ****. All 4 tires were new 5000km ago. Now I have crazy camber in the back.
Got an appointment Thursday for a new alignment, I will most likely replace the 2 rear tires again...
Random picture of the ride with a roofbox I rented few weeks ago. I removed the bars immediately after I returned the box.
Lastly, I replaced all interior lights with LEDs, color is 2700K so about the same as OEM (which might be 2200K as it is quite yellow). I did NOT want the 5000K blue light. The light output is very impressive, I am pleased with that. Left is OEM, right is LED. 5 front reading light, 4 footwell, glovebox, 2 trunk. The only one I don't like is the one on the taillight, I prefer the model I got for the front door where the bulb is not replacable.
I should get my 18Z caliper back from powdercoating tomorrow. Looking forward for that as well!
lastly, I got a minor fender bender in a parking. The rear left reflector in the bumper cracked and broke the mounting tab, insurance company want to replace the whole bumper and rear diffuser. The rear left tail light got scratched as well. This will be the perfect opportunity to look for the towing controller...
