Paid way to much for a poor quality car wash. The rims are still dirty! Waste of AU22 bucks.
Pulled off the drive sdie interior trim to try and find cause of the vibration... and made it worse.
Pulled off the passenger side interior door to try and diagnose why the speaker grill vibrates sometimes. Haven't re attached yet.
Looking ebay to consider what to do next...

Kept her out of the rain, took a two hour nap inside her (work is boring today and I ate a big lunch...gotta sleep it off, ya know!) Will begin the full Zaino process tonight with a Dawn detergent wash, blow dried, then she can sleep for the night... She has an appointment with the random orbital tomorrow.

This week I replaced shocks and LCAB's. Shocks were easy, but that damn bushing was hard to take off and frustrating to get the new one back on. I replaced mine before they went bad - maybe if I waited until they were falling a part it would have been easier?

I washed and detailed the exterior. Tomorrow, I will do the interior. Might even install the first aid box I have had sitting in the trunk for a year. She looks so pretty now!!! Need to change my air freshener also...actually doing that right now. That squash stuff smells so nice.

Realized that I forgot to put up the sunshade on my dash. Ran out there as quickly as I could and put it up. Then walked slowly and cooly back inside with a grin.

Pics of it installed, please! That looks like it could have some potential.

Any reason you went w/ the brembos? I bought the OEM motorsport discs since Tischer is selling them wayy below normal price ($78/rotor instead of $260 each). I don't think I even need brakes quite yet, but I couldn't pass up the deal (and sometimes my brakes don't bite for a second or so in the rain, so I thought drilled rotors might help w/ that... floating design is also nice!)
