Here is a very quick and not too exciting drive to test out the cameras and audio. I have a D800 with a magic arm suction cupped to the sunroof. I need to make it more stable. Mounting it on the roof rack with a super clamp seems the best so far. Also had a Zoom H4n suction cupped to the sunroof. Had a GoPro mounted to the steering column with a flexible tripod. Need to get some light down there so you can see better.
nice socks brah!
Got my car in early march and used the winter tires I got from Tirerack.com (General Altimax Arctic tires 215/55R16) briefly and now this year there was a bit of rust on them. Tirerack scratched the hell out of the steel wheels while putting the tire on... So, I decided to paint them about the same color as the stock wheels. The paint I color I used was graphite. It was by Rust-Oleum wheel paint. I under estimated how long it would take to do, which was about 4 hours. Sanded the wheels with 400 grit, cleaned them with brake cleaner, taped them off, cleaned again, few coats of primer, few coats of color, and a few coats of clear.
Primed and ready
I'll post more pics once they are on the car.
I used the card trick instead of taping up my rims. I am curious to see how those look on the car probably going to look good on DGM not sure on WRB

Blew the voice coil in my sub over the weekend on the beginning of a long trip... The song playing had some serious bass than the other songs and it cut out. The amp went in protection mode so I had to turn the car off and on again. Tried playing some music but hear scratching coming from the sub then just gave out. I admit I did not do any breaking in of the sub and just basted it when I got it on June. And I properly set the gain structure.
Just got the new replacement sub today and installed it. But I'm glad I did blow the one I had. The mounting for my Audio Integrations box was broken at the top. There are two points where the box is attached, the bottom uses a bolt, the top uses a screw.
It's not the strongest connection and the metal plate it was attached to on the car being the paneling was bent and dislodged. Which was making sense because I was starting to hear a lot of new rattling going on back there. And when I was installing it originally, I could have over tightened that screw and not realized it.
Luckily nothing was broken just missing a screw on one side for the metal bracket. And rather use the screw that was originally used to mount the box that was almost about to lose I used a bolt and some washers. Hopefully that will help.
What the enclosure looks like

Boost leak issue.
It sounds like more air is rushing in with a hint of a whistle, but it's very loud and getting progressively worse. Just started happening about 4 days ago out of the blue. The only mods that would have any effect on it would be Stage 1 on the AP, everything else is stock. There seems to be no loss of performance that I can tell, and almost hitting target boost for that map. Checked all the hoses and felt for any air leaking and couldn't find anything. Air temperature doesn't seem to make a difference, was 30° when it happened, and got up to 60° today.
Took it to the dealer and drove it with one of the mechanic in the car and they heard the sound. They are were very useless and clueless, they guy said it could be something with the supercharger... I'll be taking it to a different dealer tomorrow. Thoughts?
Just got back from the second dealer. The issue was the intercooler boot came loose because it was not properly installed at the factory.
That rubber boot is junk. Just my recommendation: Take boot off, degrease the inside lip of the hose, coat the inside lip with hairspray, and reinstall with a good clamp.
