    Installed my Streamlight SL20X LED flashlight charger in the trunk area. Also changed the front map lights and cargo light to LED. Still trying to figure out what to do with the two dome lights as they are non serviceable.

    Did you have a spreadsheet with all the codes and what to change them to?

    Just replaced my Yokohama Parada Spec-X's with some Continental Extreme Contact DWS06's. 265/40/22. Love the tread design, handling, silent ride, 50K mileage warranty, and wider lip protector- my wheel faces now have a bit of tire overhang for a wee bit of protection.

    Good choice... I’ve actually have had a few people come up to me in parking lots and at a car wash asking about the DWS06’s. I’ve never had such a reaction over tires before. And if you can get your wife or a friend to drive your Ex away from you slowly the tread pattern looks really cool. Enjoy your new shoes and the extra rim protection. The lip protector and the Continental lettering holds tire shine and will sling it so watch for that.

    And they have a unique treadwear indicator.

    I got crafty lol. If you look closely, I had to remove the old airaid logo and then I had the wife show me how to use her silhouette program on the computer and I used that to cut the “SPORT” logo out of some heat transfer vinyl and then used the wife’s heat press to press the decal onto the filter wrap.

    I think those fit in very well with the vehicle's colour.

    Looking at the Order Guide, it appears to be Burgundy Velvet Metallic Clearcoat. The wheels are the optional 20” Premium Painted Machined Aluminum ones.
