28-MAR-2017 V1 installed (semi-permanent but removable).

Hard wired (I mean since there is the glove box outlet it is really just hide wired) my Valentine One or V1 using @MarcL 's guide: Valentine 1 RADAR install DIY. I'm very happy with it. Now there are no cables dangling in the cockpit and it's near impossible to notice from the outside looking in.



Work-In-Progress



I mean seriously, you can barely see it from in the car when it's off.



As a bonus I cleaned out my cabin air filter while I was in there.

Fresh oil change and new air filter. Exciting stuff.

Changed oil and air filter. The air filter wasn't that bad.

My Fiancée's car air filter was horrid though. Glad we spent the extra $10/ea She just hit 60k in her Impreza, I need to do the spark plugs next.

Between the two cars we still drained over 9.5 qts so the consumption isn't too bad especially considering they were both overdue.

Installed Blizzak LM-32 'performance winter' (sounds like an oxymoron) tires. I know it's a bit early but I got a nasty flat so I figured might as well. And hey it snowed here in October 2 years ago but hopefully I won't even have to drive this car in the snow this year if I finish my other project.. I also plan on getting 'real' wheels and tires in the Spring so I didn't want to go with all seasons that made my car undrivable in more than 1" of snow again.

I got a half moon on my front window. Saving gas mileage by drafting comes at a price. I assume a simple glass repair kit from an auto repair store should do the trick?

Photo to come in the edit because I just realized it's in with photos I transferred to my PC earlier this afternoon...

Changed the oil. Rotated the tires. I actually bought pads because the current ones looked low but after pulling the caliper off there was still like half the life in there. I'll save those for a rainy day..
