So I dipped my grill area the other day and painted my steelies House Of Kolor Neon Blue. Although it does look similar to the blue plasti dip. It looks better in person. Kinda mad I spent the $60 on paint :( but it's better than black steelies that will rust soon

No, and I just cut the wires for the controls because I had a hard time getting the airbag to fit right with the wires. I also think my airbag is different than the SE+

So after 54k, I'm going to replace my front brakes before winter. I ended up trying the Centric Black PC rotors. I bought them on amazon and one set was way less than the other. Well the front rotors I bought weren't vented, they are solid. I'm going to run them anyhow, as the consensus online is they'll be fine. I also bought these Akebono pads.

Oh OK. Yeah I've heard they're different.

Damn, they still make those?
Is the overall thickness the same?

No the overall thickness isn't even close. I didn't think they made solid rotors for a car that didn't even ever come equipt with them. It seems like they should be fine for street use. For $33 might as well try them.

Turns out I was sent all back brakes. When ordering on amazon don't buy the cheapest as it's probably the rears even though the ad says front rotors :(
