Dealerships in the ATL area are running oil change specials for around $80. I would say that's kind of high for an indy.

Had Kuhmos and while they are good tires they are too light for the 7 series. They will wear very quickly. Michelins and Continentals are top choices.

Is it possible to have windows automatically close when raining?

Ok. I was able to code using NCS expert, the auto sunroof close when the rain sensor detects rain. Can the windows be programmed to auto close along with the sunroof?
