What the hell, this completely negates the app. It's a remote app that doesn't act as a remote.

Keep in mind. IIRC. When you opt for traffic school, if you get a ticket within 18 months, the traffic school gets wiped out and the first point is back on public record along with the second.

My local parts stores are starting to carry Phillips D1S bulbs. Sometimes you have to ask them to pull it for you. They're easy to steal so they may have them but in the back.

Also make sure the attendant, or whoever pulls the car in, lines it up real well before pulling up to the rail. Sometimes these guys use the rail edges as bumpers to force the tires to line up.

I don't think spacers are necessary since your car had 19s. I'd only consider spacers if you are going to install the extended flares in addition to the 20s.
Just buy 4 front wheels and tires.
