A bro-dozer is any of the variety of super lifted trucks with 35"+ tires and little to no point. Their headlights are killer coming through the back window...

Excellent point. I was going to go 20% all around, but maybe hatch + mini windows darker, due to wanting to take out deck and not have people look in there. Plus, I wonder if psychologically it makes the cops think the rest is lighter than it actually is.

Guilty as charged. I try to stop back extra far b/c my lights shine directly into the rear view/side mirrors and I know how bright it is.

azgsa, your tint and wheels look great. We might have been neighbors at one point. I lived in Maricopa until I left AZ in 2007. I miss the little Mexican restaurant that was just on the other side of the train tracks. Their carne asada was the bomb.

Thanks. Wanted all black wheels and right now there aren't many wheels at all available for this bolt pattern/offset in 16", which I wanted to stay with for the smoother ride. These black with machined spokes where about all I could find. Might get the OEM 'machined alloy' upgrade rims (that came off it) powder painted later when it's time for new tires.

Just bought this house last year . Finished the move from Gilbert this March. $61K for a 3 bdrm w/den 1527 sq ft house that's 5 yrs old. Same house sold for $184K new 5 yrs ago. Cheap enough for no mo mortgage fo me, and now I can afford a new banana Focus for cash too. I am loving this car. Taking to San Diego this weekend for it's first road trip. Driving it super easy I'm averaging ~36mpg combined hwy/city with the communte into Chandler for work.

Tacos n More is great, about a mile from my house

Was worried they would take away from the sport look, but they ready kinda to the stance in a little way giving a little more weight on the bottom. huh..... I like it.

Yikes! Makes me really glad I was renting. I knew the housing market had taken a beating out there, but not that badly. I've given some thought to transferring back to our Chandler office. If I could pick up a house for that cheap I might have to give it some further thought. I know they were talking about building some new stuff out there like a Target and a movie theater. Did any of that ever happen? Have fun on the road trip.
