I had RAD do some exhaust work a few months back and they did a great job. Super professional, Will did great work (some of you know him already), and the quote was spot on. My car was being driven off the lift as I arrived to pick it up.

I've also had tires replaced at American Tire by the airport, and I'm taking a slow leak into them today also. So far they have been great

The most expensive part is removing and installing the window on the car ...

I went to bmw and purchased the lower rubber trim for $30
And installed it myself in just a couple minutes. The two sides and top trimming is what I'm really worried a out.

Thanks👍
I actually saw a video for this on YouTube.

The rear window is the one that's got me trippin.
Upper and side rubber molding. Also the corners too. Seems like the corners are separate pieces.

Safety Stickers

Off topic . . .

Vertical safety stickers are now legal, i.e. the bracket to the right of the rear license plate. Also, Tony Hyundai does free safety checks for military.
