    The low coolant light has come on intermittently the past two days, but the coolant level is only a smidge low. At least one person thinks this is related to improper bleeding procedure. It's something I'll have to track down next week, I guess.

    Mileage: 79,485 miles

    Minor maintenance:
    • Swapped floor mats from cloth to rubber. Should have done it ages ago, but I'm a procrastinator at heart.
    • Gave the interior a good vacuum and wipe down with a damp microfiber cloth - it was quite dusty somehow. Just shedding all sorts of skin I guess. Or took it on the Dakar and forgot. Only those two options are available.
    • Replaced the passenger side C-pillar (51432699060) along with new clips with the foam (51418224768) because my old C-pillar was drooping. It was fine back when I replaced the driver's side in February, but the passenger side started to droop as well starting in May. Followed this guide.
    • Bled the coolant system due to an intermittent low coolant light. There was some dried coolant in the little trenches on the top of the expansion tank, not sure if I have a leak going on or not. I'll see if the light comes back on, it didn't need much coolant to get it to be bled.

    With the ceramic coating that must've been so easy. I still remember how my car was when I first got it, it had Opti-Coat on every exterior shiny surface

    It is very rewarding to finish washing and it's really damned clean without a lot of effort. But being clean also reveals the blemishes
