My 2012 SE is coming up on 60K. Finally had to spend some money on it. A set of BFG Advantages and HD Bilsteins, almost $1800 all told. Ouch.

Are the HD bilsteins expensive? Because I'm assuming the tires cost about $200 at most which comes to $800.

Just out of curiosity, if you take off the intake manifold for any reason during your swap, could you take a peek at the valves and see how much carbon has accumulated in your 140k?

Just under 13K on my 2014. Not quite 12,900. Was 12,505 last health report on 9/14. Moved closer to work. Prior to this on my 2011 SES drove 400 per week just to work and back, not including personal driving on weekends.
