Replaced the tension strut arm bushings with some dinan goodies. If your car is over 100k, they probably need to be switched out by now. My oems were completely torn off lol.

Those are FCAB's correct? How does it drive with the Dinan?

Front is slightly more responsive to the road. You can "feel" the road more with the front end. Turning confidence has definitely increased for me. While braking while turning has also been stiffened so it's doesn't shimmy around as much.

Recently acquired my dream bmw seats. These seats are beautiful. They are a little worn & scuffed up but I ordered a bunch of cleaning supplies to hopefully clean the seats & steering wheel up.

A few hours after letting the diluted Meguiar's hyper dressing sit. It looks 10x better than before.. I wish I could've gotten a before picture.

First wash after the collinite wax. I don't know how I feel about wet-look tire shine, more of a matte finish person.

Eric, for engine bay plastics and rubber I normally go with 303 Aerospace to coat such pieces, and then finish it off with Chemical Guys Black on Black.

Perhaps give that a try.

I personally like the orange reflectors (makes the car seem old and retro)...I'd either go orange reflectors or Euro Bumper for not reflectors at all.
