the low and high beams should not be yellowish, only the rings. With the pre-LCI like your '09, the inner rings will always be brighter than the outer rings even if you get a brighter bulb. It's...

new headlight assembly swap?

I have an '08 with the headlights showing lens clouding and scratching and thought maybe it's a good opportunity to upgrade to the LCI headlights with the brighter angel eyes. Is it a straight swap...

I think the Bridgestones all-seasons are ok for treadlife - it's their summer tires that are horrible in that regard. But that sounds like a hell of a deal if they're really OE 214s. Verify.

Lived through high speed vibration as well with my old wheels. Road force balancing more than once didn't help either. Likely 1 or 2 of your replica wheels are out of round. Spin them naked on a...

Just replaced mine for the cig lighter... it's the 20a yellow fuses accessible in the trunk. Check to see if any of them are burned through.
