Changed out the crappy rear back up lights on my '18 ST3 to some bright LED's. Put in amber LED's on each mirror turn signal too. Also, put amber LED's in the side marker on the headlights. Make a huge difference.

Last weekend, changed the front and rear brakes and replaced the drums. Replaced the pas. door latch (wouldn’t open with outside handle and occasionally wouldn’t stay shut).
Note: inside door handle, outside door handle backing, and latch can be removed as all one piece.

Scored a set of 16" four-lug wheels with decent tires on Facebook Marketplace for $125. My steel wheels have winter tires on them.

Replaced the alternator. Honestly, it was not that difficult - FAR easier than a thermostat. I did the "unbolt the torque mount and pull the engine forward" method, using a ratchet strap.

I tracked my car for 8 sessions (each ranging from 20-35 min in length) and nothing broke!

I installed new rotors from SP Performance Rotors. Saw a few guys rocking these on IG and picked up a set based on their recomendation. Got them Monday and finished the install today. Love them.

Today I replaced the screen in my gauge cluster been putting off for a awhile hoping it would come back on. Didnt take too long and luckily local junkyard had a whole cluster they sold me with a working screen an minimal miles. I just swapped screens to retain correct mileage.
