      Just as an FYI, I bought a set of LMs about 2 weeks ago and am still waiting for delivery. ETA 04/04

      Look forward to seeing them. The dealer I've been working with can have them to me in 4-5 days... must be a different supplier. What colour did you go with? What colour car? What suspension?

      FYI if you have 19s, then your odo will be slightly off, correct size is 235/40/18s for an 18" wheel. FYI

      You are correct SCHWAB0. I have the order for 18s and will keep the original 225/40/18 until they wear out, since nobody wanted to buy them from me locally. I do plan on getting the proper 235 after that.

      Finally took care of my poor door sills. They were getting scratched to hell, and these dimples on the passenger side from what looks like a stiletto heel finally convinced me. My g/f says she never steps on the sills because she "knows better", so it must've been the prostitute.



      Driver's side mess from me apparently...



      Annnnd after shot!



      Thanks to @lchd2392 for the recommendation! About $100 shipped from merry ol' England.

      Yeah, when I showed her and explained it was very clearly from a high heel and then she said "I didn't do it" my reply of "Well then who did?!" didn't do me any favors. She shot me a look that said "Why don't you tell me?!" and I knew I was boned. The thing is, there is no other woman, so god dammit it was her. Ah well.

      Hahaha my was a scuff lol but I can prob buff it out when it warms up. Funny thing she's the only one who has ever been i. My car let alone sat in the passenger seat so she knew she did it. Her response " it's just a car babe " then I proceeded to say okay I will just get a new car each year

      Because brighter is better? Disabling the center LED in the inside light also disables the orange marker light on the side of the light on US cars. ROW cars don't have the orange marker light.

      On this car lights look much better with brighter DRLs. Try it, it takes like 2 min. to code, and you can do it while the lights are on to compare

      Interesting. Brings me worry that 18x8.5+45et will rub with 235/40/18, and certainly seems to confirm 245/40/18 will not work without spacers (at a minimum)

      I'm running 245/40/18 tires on 18x9et45 wheels with no issues other than rubbing on hard bumps. And I don't expect to have any issues with my 18x8.5e45 wheels that will be going on in the next day or two either.
