The car itself looks great. The sky is blow out, and the yellow hue makes the background hard to look at.

Could you upload an original for reference? I am curious to see

Also After a few delays due to back orders the new transmission is in.
Didn't really notice how bad the old one was until the  new one was installed. There was definitely a lot of hesitation and slippage going on that I didn't really noticed.

Other than that not much for updates. I think the plan is now to hold off on any of the parts that required a tune and just drive the car for awhile.

2 rims both passenger side.


Haha luckily she's about the only thing more important then the car.

LOL

Before she had even told me, she had called 3 places to get quotes to fix and one to order replacements. She felt horrible  :'(
Cheapest quoted was $175 per rim to fix. probably end up going that route.

Wheel clinic did and amazing job, Dropped them off Monday and they had them done by Tuesday afternoon.
You cannot even tell where any of the damage was.

Man, they did a fantastic job. How does the paint match compared to the undamaged wheels?

When I put them beside each other I couldn't see any difference at all.

Haven't updated in awhile, not much has changed been mostly just driving and enjoying the car.
Car rolled over 100,000 km a few days after Christmas.
Few small updates though my Lg dash cam quit a few weeks back so I picked up a new one.
Also picked up a Thule Cargo box from a friend and re-wrapped the roof rack for this season.
