That said, it is definitely a worthy mod.

I thought E9X only had one shade of the grey interior. Had no idea e9x m also had a silver leather interior. It doesn't bother me like I said. The extra armrest is definitely sweet for the driver.

Pull off the plastic trim on the edges of the tailgate next to/under the glass. that's where the rust forms; that stupid plastic thing holds dirty damp salty goo against the metal, then it is just a matter of time. I'm not going to put the cover back on once i find a good one.

I will likely be inspecting my hatch this weekend. Last night I put some 15mm spacers I had on the rear of the car. It looks awesome but I will likely swap them out of 12mm. No real rubbing yet but Im a little nervous about it.

I clean under them all the time.
along with all the rear windo molding, it seems to love holding maple spinners.

they're fine. I ran 20s in the rear on stock 17s, no rubbing, and I've loaded my wagon to the bump stops with transmissions and engines in the back.

what, you don't use yours like a pickup?

Cleaned and vacuumed all interior, took baby seats out got all the stuff out of the car. Treated the leather, washed all mats including trunk rubber mat. Then hand washed outside.
Replaced battery with a autozone duralast gold h6-dlg and registered with inpa.

Felt like a productive day.
