Thank you!

Your Anthracite Metallic is also very sharp. Very understated, elegant, yet rich.

I just checked my car to be sure. The top of the numbers are even with the horizontal edge of the trunk where it goes over the tail lights. On mine, at least, that allows the bottom of the numbers to...

Follow the wire from the sensor as far as you can and make sure the connectors are firmly plugged into one another. It might be that.

Same here! I think our particular cars are a perfect balance of weight, aerodynamics, engine size, and handsome drivers. Enough said before everyone starts to hurl stones at me!

Why not ask them if you can leave the pieces with them and they would re-cement them in place? How much could they charge? I feel that it's worth the few dollars.

I understand that you cannot re-set your lights until they go to orange or red. If you still have any that are green, they will not re-set.

I live in New York and use 15W40. I have absolutely no problem starting on the coldest days of winter. If you do have a problem, I'd guess the cause is something else and not the oil viscosity.
