Installed new headlight lenses the other day. Wow, the car looks 5 years newer! Big improvement in looks and lighting output. My old lenses weren't even that bad (not very foggy or pitted).

Replaced the old model cam chain tensioner (11311439851) with the new model (11317567680) on my N42 engine and also replaced my windshield wipers with the new model type-they work great!.

Same. I have the oil and filter ready to go. While I get the oil changed I will have my dme updated as well.

Today I drove my brother to the DMV. It will be a while before he drives my car.

Found out the blizzaks I bought a few months ago are basically worthless for any snow use. Gonna have to get new tires now, probably go all seasons at this point and mount them on my csl reps earlier than expected.

Yup...visually they looked okay, should have brought a measuring tool. My own fault I guess.
