Well yes and no. There are pictures of my car for the headlights but no pictures to show off the car itself. I was planning on taking pics of it last week but stuff kept coming up and then I got the bubble in the tire. I figured I might as well have the work done that it needs as well. Now it is in the shop waiting for the warranty company to approve the work on the torque converter. I dropped it off Sunday night, the agent came yesterday and will deliver his findings today...guess time is what I am paying with instead of cash.

I got another bubble in a tire....I am going to replace it in kind for time being but I would like replace all my tires with something more durable. The car came with Toyo Entensa HP. Suggestions for stronger tires, especially the sidewalls.

I'm running Pirelli P-Zero Neros and I am very happy with them. They served me well in the worst winter we've had here in a century. I always keep all-seasons on my W8 as it's my winter vehicle.

I will look into those. The roads around here are horrible, I know for a fact that this was caused by either an unfixed pothole or a raised structure during road work.

Y'know my variant came with Pirellis and I have to say I was not impressed with them at all this winter. Quite possibly the worst tire I've owned over a winter season. I'd love to get Blizzaks again but as much as I drive the car the cost doesn't justify the means.

Thank you, its funny when I first got it I would have done anything for it to be black but the color is really starting to grow on me

I have a question for you, does every peiece of pollen, dust, salt, everything seem to be drawn to and then stuck to your rear hatch?
