    Looking good! Amazing what a simple rim swap can do for these cars. I canít wait to get my rims on and experience it myself hahah. Iíve got wobbly front discs too but Iíve chalked it up to cheap rotors (I went cheap when I did the front brake swap knowing Iíll upgrade in the future).

    The car is happier than it's been in a long time now. The idle was so smooth today. The power seems to have increased. It doesn't track the grooves on the freeway anymore, which made for an exciting commute every day. Those old tires were really bad. The new tires are amazingly grippy. That one corner that used to require the entire oncoming lane to make now takes only one lane. If this keeps up, the thing will float to work soon.
