I would agree if the car isn't driven, which would lead to a completely pointless post here.

Xenon lights are much brighter and the color temperature is closer to 5200k. The halogens sit about 4200k. With ZPP, I'm pretty sure you have xenon lights, however.

It sounds like a spun rod bearing to me, honestly. It's loud with rpm.

Shavings found internally won't be from a wastegate or fuel injectors. How did they discover the shavings, from the oil pan?

That's the stuff. It has more uses obviously, but it is really good and easy on cleaning rubber and exterior trim.

There is NO added NVH from solid subframe bushings. Many new models have solid rear subframes (M[3|4|5]). The only noise/vibration comes from replacing the diff bushings with solid or urethane.

I personally don't like leaving a plug in a head that long, so I changes them between 2-3 years max.

You can always send a virgin sample to blackstone for a VOA as well. My guess is that there's not a lot of mos2 than you think.

I guess it wasn't so obvious to me, my IT crystal ball must have segfaulted; perhaps it runs iOS8. Apologies for not considering your sensitivity.

Try "lifting" yourself out by using the lower door sill. When getting in, place your left hand on the bolster and slide off your hand.

You'll reduce wear to almost zero using these methods.

You should have spent more time on the test drive, feeling the seats. You can always buy non-sport seats and drop them in.
