    Yes I did I found an amber one for 15

    Thinking the black ones would look nice, is there a favorite tire for this car was reading about the Bridgestone Potenza re760 they seem pretty good

    I actually just snagged an OEM M3 strut for $210 Shipped

    Preferred oils for our cars can be found here, along with further discussion: http://www.zhpmafia.com/forums/showt...The-Oil-Thread

    I personally use BMW 5W-30, but am switching over to Mobil 1 0W-40 on my next oil change.

    I'm not sure. Perhaps your adjustment motor on your right headlight has failed? Another member of the forum might be more familiar with the issue.

    Not bad.

    Tires are up to personal preference and need. I'm not familiar with those Bridgestones, but people love their Michelin Pilot Super Sports if you're in a warmer state. They do wear quickly though and are more expensive than a lot of tires. I'm going to put on some Continental ExtremeContact DW tires when I get my APEX ARC-8 wheels since they have very good dry and wet performance.

    I use M1 0w-40 as well. I was told to switch from BMW OE oil to this after getting a oil report back from Blackstone labs. I have had zero issues. Totally recommend.

    Probably going to go with the Michelin tires they have good reviews and are a lot cheaper then the re760 ones i was thinking about. For the oil did some reading on that now is it only the SAE grade m1 0w-40, There are a couple different kinds under mobile 1 0w-40

    Which Michelin tires? The Pilot Super Sports? I'd assume they're more expensive than the RE760s. Looking at 245/40R17 tires (the size I plan to get on my APEXs), the RE760 is $133 each while the Michelin PSS are $169.30 a piece.

    As for Mobil 1, what do you mean different types of Mobil 1 0W-40? SAE is a grading system for viscosity at different temperatures.

    For the tires that was weird I was looking at them on tirerack and were showing me 220 per tire in that size but now its showing me 133, something got screwed up. On the link I have to walmart it shows 4 selections for that oil but they all seem different and why would the 5 qt be so much cheaper 26 http://www.walmart.com/search/?query...obile%201%200w
