    What I did for my CX-5 was buy cheap rubber floor mats from Walmart to keep the good floor mats clean. They were universal fit and with some trimming they fit good. I like them. They have a ridge to keep any mud or water in them.

    Anyway, he said rotors probably have "one turn" left in them. Turn and resurface mean the same thing right?

    Now that I know what's needed, I'll buy some new pads, hardware, grease, get the rotors resurfaced, put new pads on, grease everything up like its supposed to be (from the videos I watched), and put it back together. That should solve my pulsating braking at high speeds.
    I used to change the brakes on my old car. The slide hardware are stainless steel clips that the pads ride in. They have to lubed with brake grease so the pads can move back and forth freely. When a pad sticks, and it is very common, one pad will wear faster than the other. Yes resurfacing and turning mean the same thing. But rotors are so cheap these days I didn't think they machined them anymore, just put new ones on.

    0w-20 is so thin. They do it not for the motor's sake but to try to get more mpg out of the car. There is less drag of motor parts in thin oil. Do you guys run full synthetic or a blend?

    It seemed to keep my catch can less full between changes, blowby. Ran 5w30 for about a year.. however like I said, I also did an unnecessary repair that could destroy and engine if done improperly. The new bearing were tighter tolerance than the ones removed so my experience of the noise was likely a quirk of my engine. Considering I was getting the noise at idle/creeping which is also the lowest oil pressure, and the noise is gone now with the *thinner* oil.

    Noticed one of my HIDS wasn't reflecting off the car in front of me.. time for some new ones. I'm hoping I can get it in/out without taking the light off (or worse bending the clip trying do it blind). edit: good lord, the best d4s bulbs are $150 a set.. I don't want a no name PRC this time though, probably just grab some morimito for $50..

    Cleaned and detailed our Black Mica Signature CX-5 and sealed it with Meguiars Ultra Fast Finish. The car is new but it never looked as good as it does today.
