Adjusted tire pressure down 1 psi front and rear. Drove to/from work, ran a few errands - post office, pharmacy, FedEx to ship an old tire we sold, etc etc. Went WOT in 2nd gear a few times to test grip of new tires. Washed and dry when I got home from work, went over car with instant detail spray - it's been a while and it was nasty. Thought about where to mount my camera to capture the rear wheel(s) while WOT in 2nd gear to monitor for tire slip/loss of traction.
Went in garage later tonight just to admire the OBM paint and the cool velvet textured rubber side lettering on the Sport Cup 2's sidewall. Its just SO cool looking. Now I don't even like to put on tire dressing as it covers up the cool effect.
Installed my SRP gas pedal with spacers for easier heel/toe, removed the front bumper for LED DRL's, installed my C/F wrapped trim.
Plastidipped the grills, fog buckets and shrouds, purchased replacement fasteners for ones missing/broken. Bought a foglight HID kit as well.
Next up is: repairing the bi-xenon solenoid wire (mine broke inside the headlight), light pipe LED swap, blackhousing headlights, LED signals, D1S bulb swap, clearcoating the pitted fog lenses, installing the mirrormount & door cup clearbra.

What brand of engine oil do you use?
I will be changing the oil in my engine for the first time and am up in the air on which oil to use. There are so many choices and a lot of them seem like good options.
Why did you pick the oil you use?
Just out of curiosity...
