Thanks Kat! Although it was the car's birthday I confess I bought a little something for myself, too: A set of trim removal tools. After all, I had to do the job right. (The right tools did make pulling that vent trim considerably less nerve-wracking.)

CtoC4 was such a perfect day, I felt I would accrue bad karma if I did not make my full contribution to the soundtrack! I don't normally launch the car as hard (or as often) as I did that day, but I do ensure the tachometer needle makes regular visits to the upper third of the dial. I am a firm believer in Italian tune-ups--regular exercise for peak fitness!

Long-term, I'm averaging about 22mpg overall. The fuel bills run about $300/month, give or take. If I really try (and I mean no-fun-whatsoever try) I can eke out maybe 24-25mpg combined--my city/highway commuting mix doesn't allow much better. For the small difference in cost, I'd rather enjoy life!

I'd all but forgotten about the pictures! What's going on, DSX--the goat eat your SD card?!
