Got a good deal on the 2 (Cooper) Starfire RS-C V98 tires from Town Fair Tire at $112...and out the door balanced/aligned at $169. Let's see how this brand of touring tire holds up. Pep Boys was running a sale and Town Fair matched them. Next time I'll probably try the General Altimax RT43 or another set of Michelins. My old car was picked up yesterday...a good 9 yrs out of it. The ignition key process continues to drag on. Dealerships don't want to be bothered. Many/most ACE Hardwares don't carry the blanks and some don't even know if they can duplicate them. Some of the big box stores offer a Kiosk to read your key and they mail it to you. That's a last ditch option. Off to another ACE store today..... The last ACE store was able to make me a key in under 10 minutes - $70. Next step is to get some trunk/glove box keys made at a local locksmith ($35)....just in case the electronic trunk opener stops working. Bought 5 plastic clips at ACE for the "newer" front air dam (40c each) that I'll put on within the week. The wobbly interior rear view mirror is annoying. It does appear it's the mounting to the windshield that is the source. So will do a little research on removing and how to reglue...without cracking the windshield. Oil change with 10w-30 QS high mileage synblend coming in about 1-2 weeks.
