Just got a quote from Jason@ModBargains for these bad boys with a set of Conti DWS's.

Changed idler pulley, Ac tensioner pulley, 2 idler pulleys on my active supercharger, slotted rear rotors with pads and wear sensor, and readjusted tensioner arm on the super charger. Also had alignment done to fix toe settings.

Spark plugs (141,000 miles - actually still looked not too bad, although far from new). New cup holder insert thingy. Detailed.

What type of glue are you guys using on the pillars? The fabric is now coming off on all of mine. Looks like another dumb cosmetic issue to tackle.

I washed my car today. Noticed a patch of paint on the hood that looked like it was cracking. The paint under the clear coat has assumed the texture of cracked earth, like pictures I've seen of Death Valley. I want to say that this is likely heat-induced. Will have to investigate some more.
