Re: Headlight Issue(low beams)

You can go through the wheel well and leave the bumper alone.

Re: HID questions

Any H11 is regulated by the DOT to about 1100 Lumens +- 15%. Why not go with an H9 with 2100 lumens +-15%. A quick mod on the bulb and your good to go. The difference is night and day, and nobody...

Re: Time to look for a replacement to my XR

Re: Ambient light sensor replacement?

The DRL will not dim the radio display as you describe. Only when the headlights are turned on either manually or via the sensor will the display dim. You are correct that the light sensor is on your...

Re: Vibrating when brake

Things to consider.
1) When replacing the old rotors ensure that the hub is "very" clean. A small amount of rust or dirt can prevent your new rotors from seating flush on the hub.
2) I've heard...

Re: Time to look for a replacement to my XR

Lol. 185HP should be fine for a ~3300lb car. Interesting fact about those mileage numbers as I'm able to get the same with my 3.6 V6 "in the summer". I lock my CC at a slow 65MPH and I consistently...

Re: Time to look for a replacement to my XR

yeah, I've been looking for months, on and off. My 08 Aura with 84K miles still runs well, but with the looming $4K threat of that wave-plate issue, and now the start of replacing suspension parts...

Re: Just hit 100K miles, thoughts and need tires

Yeah, you can't beat the price/quality ratio on these tires, provided you're not expecting to pull G's like a Z rated tire. These GT's are just not designed for that kind of driving. I drive 180KM a...

Re: Just hit 100K miles, thoughts and need tires

Yeah, I bought the same tires last year. Very quiet, smooth, and long lasting. I've got about 20k on them so far and tread life appears to be excellent. To top it off, they are rated very high in...

Re: Changing brake pads myself: difficulty level?

Two things I did not see in the earlier posts.

Clean and replace the lube on the longer screws & check for broken rubber.
Clean any corrosion on the caliper when replacing the SS guides. Not...

[QUOTE=gpartrid;2137928]Should be possible. This is from July 4th weekend in 2011 after I had stopped for gas coming back from NC. However, this is strictly highway mpg's. Ordinarily, driving in the...

Re: 500 Miles per tank AuraXR 3.6, Possable?

It looks like 1700 or 1800 RPM. To give some background, the Aura is a 2008 3.6L V6 with just over 70000 miles on her. I'm also running the stock size 225/50/18 tires but they are General RT43 tires...

500 Miles per tank AuraXR 3.6, Possable?

Last year I was really close to achieving 500 miles on 1 tank of gas. This year I'll try it again as I think it is very achievable. My 55 mile comute to work is 98% highway with a few overpasses and...
