Picked up my car today with a new windshield. The rain sensor is not working at 100%, I think some glue got in front of it altering how it works. I'll take care of it tomorrow.

Replaced the differential fluid. Transmission is next. 105k miles, "lifetime" is over. Diff fluid looked pretty good, no noticable metal shavings.

My left thigh has been very uncomfortable in the new sport seats. Dropped the seat height, moved up slightly, and reduced the recline.

Side effect, my head sits comfortably on the headrest too.

Feels amazing now. A little adjustment makes all the difference.
Can't believe I wasted a month of my life driving uncomfortably.

Washed the dust and dirt from nearby construction off, cleaned out a little inside. And started making a shopping list, as my next raise hits in a month.

Wondering if I should tackle installing my h&r sports onto the car tomorrow, never done it before but just had the struts replaced with koni yellows so at least I know nothing will be seized up on me.

Retrofitted the wiring for heated seats. When I did my seat color conversion to black I got sport heated seats from a cold weather packaged sport sedan. Finally got around to doing the wiring for the heat. Now I have to buy the hvac relocation unit for the new buttons.

Used it to take a girl out on a first date. When I dropped her off she slammed the door.... looks like there isn't going to be a second date.
