    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    Today I got to test out the winter tires on ice. Woke up to an icy world after a night of freezing drizzle. Spin outs, fender benders and even a turtle on the way in to the office. Drove slow, kept my distance from the other vehicles and arrived safely just a few minutes later than usual. I am becoming not just a winter tire convert, but a winter tire evangelist.

    Yes. Winter tires are head and shoulders above all seasons, almost no comparison. Control in turns, shorter braking length, traction from a dead stop vs. slippin’ & sliding; all in all I’m sold on them and now I’m preaching the benefits of a dedicated set of winter tires.

    New Exhaust is available so I had to get it

    Ordered up the Infiniti Helmholtz Sport Exhaust. Arrives Friday and hopefully I'll find time to bolt it up Saturday.

    Took the work truck in for a new set of tires and an alignment. Man it rides and drives better. Last week it got an oil change and front end grease along with new front brakes. It's like a new truck again.

    It's here and ready to be installed Saturday. Shouldn't take but 30 minutes or so.

    1 lift, two guys, a few sodas and about 20 minutes and she's done.

    I hope the deep tone comes through okay. Listen on speakers with some bass for sure. This is a mild/partial throttle run as we are in a friends neighborhood after all

    I'll let him chime in on this thoughts to what it sounds like in person. Let's just say under WOT she's got a very exotic beastly sound. I'm very pleased and can't wait for the weather to dry up to get a nice under bridge or tunnel run in.

    Warmed up car with a few revs in park:
