    Is the brush composite (nylon, foam, etc) or horse hair? If it's not horse hair, don't use it. And, always make sure to rinse the brush and then run your hand though it checking for any foreign media.

    It's an observation 98/100 drivers probably wouldn't notice, not really an issue. My wife likes the grip and quietness, other than that she can't tell a difference.

    The auto feels stronger than the manual, and it's also quicker and rated better on gas mileage.

    I looked at Subaru, too but the CVT with the low power 2.5 was the deal killer. Maybe at the XT...

    Wife had some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ put on her Sport recently. Stock size, V rated. Original Yokohama Advans hit 30k miles when they hit the wear bars, and started to make some noise, too.

    I had a couple 2016 loaners. The trans seems different in regular mode in those compared to my 2015. They were much more reponsive. Sport mode was perfect for my tastes.

    I see the same difference on my 6 as well. I drove 400 miles in nonstop rain once limited by traffic running 50 to 60 MPH and my MPG'S were crazy good on that trip.

    The Phillips bulb I have is more omnidirectional than most 194 style LEDs, so in this case flipping the bulb 180 won't help really (actually would kill all the light, these only work one way).

    Ordered some Hawk HPs and Centrics for the MZ5 to replace the horrid NAPA ceramics I just put on. Car goes to its new owner in 2 weeks. We're sending it off with (hopefully) proper brakes.
