I hand washed the blue SE and the yellow Ti today. I also swapped wheels between the two, now the blue SE has the polished 17's and the yellow Ti has the dark stainless 17's

Got them on Craigslist/eBay, negotiated because he had lower price on eBay.
Paid $600 for them, with tpms (ready to go basically) and $30.38 to get them on the car (no jack, and didn't wanna screw it up).
They have higher sidewall but they ride softer which is nice. Tires are Michelin (something eco).
The guy also included lug nuts, but I didn't need them. They look much nicer in person, though. Car does seem to be slightly higher but fenders have less gap.
I would be worried about rub with those tires. Have you checked clearance?

Yep, front, back, and steering wheel. I also had the ones for the Ford caps on the wheels, but never got around to installing them. I had gotten them from a member on here, but he fell off the map and I haven't heard from him in a year. I think TFB also vends them and I think they have a link somewhere on here...(or keep refreshing your screen because I think they have a banner up top as well)

Here is the link for various emblems/decals.

I'm waiting for a promo or discount that they might have.

Received my K&N drop in and installed it today. I do not know why the the cover was a pain to reinstall.

I will fold the rubber flap to make the snorkel delete reversible this weekend after this tropical storm leaves.

Yes, it sounds a ton better, and the speaker hasn't even broken in yet.
How did you cover the hole in the back, and what spacer did you use? Thanks!
