    Oh, and yesterday I pondered the choices I've made with the 5, and why I haven't truly put it up for sale yet. My wife told me that a random guy (local lawn crew) came by on Thursday to ask if it was for sale- she said it was up to me to sell. My neighbor wonders why it's still sitting in the driveway too. Anyone want my '09 sport manual? I'll try to get under it tomorrow again and tinker some more. I keep adding new parts but I know the sale price won't go up.

    Not sure if this is worth $400 but they offer foot activation kit also. Vendor looks cleaner but no idea how the product will hold up.
    I wonder if the hatch button requires cutting a new opening or reuses the OE handle.

    5th gear mod and keep it. It's not worth much and multi-er car discount

    D2 coilovers installed, wheel aligment done.
    I have family, so I drive Premacy!

    And I have lots of inner youth, so it's been slammed w/ BC coil-overs and has 18" CX-7 wheels

    Nope, D2 coilovers, front has camber adjustment.
    They are about center position, rear doesn't have.
    I have buy adjustable camber arms, I think there is little bit too much camber for my taste

    Wow, that silver car looks great! Still hurts a little to look at since I live in the Great Northern Land of Carnivorous Potholes.



    This past week, I finally snatched a day to look at the rattling exhaust heat shields that had been driving me crackers for what seemed like months. It was disappointing how rusty fasteners can be on a 6 year old car ... no wait, 7. Still way newer than most things I've driven.

    Took what seemed like a year to unbolt the muffler flange (entire studs came out, of course) and then Liquid Wrench and a lot of patience to get MOST of the nuts off the fuel tank straps without damage (ended up shearing 1 stud, then removing the affected tank strap to use heat on the remaining studs, sheared off 1 more, then finished up by welding M6 bolts to the tabs for some new studs). Eventually salvaged the muffler flange studs, bought big nylon washers to cover the big holes in the heat shields caused by 7 years of galvanic corrosion, and got the whole thing back together.

    Hopefully the next project will be finding out why the right rear wheel squeaks. Will probably replace the rear brake rotors first (still have the originals, turned to minimum thickness) and then get hubs if I have to.

    Depends how it squeaks. If on bumps, either the shocks or the shock mounts or both need to be replaced, if when braking, could be the pads.
    Also check the bushings and splay some WD40 or similar.
