Nice, but that probably feels really under-powered compared to the final stage of your IS. I wish I could have bought your headlights, but I couldn't justify spending the money on a car that I'm losing interest in.

I finally washed my car after it rained a couple times. This one won't buff out



Zoom in...


I'm not sure what caused this, but it probably happened in some parking lot.

Still looks good bro. Really good!

I'm going to need a full exterior detail or paint job soon. I just noticed how many flaws are in my paint from parking lots. Mainly people opening their doors and hitting mine. Ugh.

Always take extra time to find a spot thats either an end spot, median/island, or far enough away from the herd. Then inch up to that curb as much as you can cause some dick can still park shitty on one side of you lol

haha, yeah I'm always the one car in the back of the parking lot nowadays. None of the damage is recent. It's all from 10 years of daily commuting.

The damage looks pretty similar to when my uncle backed into my car, the gouges would have to be pushed out with a heat gun and then filled with flexible body filler for plastics. Then it'll have to be sanded down smooth to level out the area and then repainted.

That's exactly what I do when I find parking. I especially hate it when I park far away from everybody else but when I come back there's like 4-5 cars parked near me when there's so many other parking spaces available

Thanks for the tips. When you back away from the gouge, it's not very big, but just knowing it's there bugs the hell out of me. Shopping cart was my first guess too.

It finally happened to me. I got the hairline crack in my radiator by the cap. I ended up getting a Koyo OEM replacement for ATM. Everything fit perfectly, and there were no issues after a test drive. I also let the car idle until the fans turned on 4 times. Temps never got above the half way point on the temp gauge. Thanks again to everyone who helped me...especially JaasonM44444444444444.

Do you think I can just wet sand the clear and polish, or will I need to wet sand the polish and have it re-sprayed?

I was afraid of that. I REALLY don't want to remove the roof spoiler and remount it. Maybe I'll have a shop respray it on the car.

Oh, that's the roof spoiler? Easy to do on the car. Especially with the tools found at a shop. Prep and spray is easy
