I'm talking about the badge and the V shaped chrome surrounding it on the steering wheel.

The bezel and badge, including the black plastic and some grey plastic around it seems to be one piece.

45ths are not collector's items. They are special paint jobs.

After two years, most cars have lost 25% or more of their value, no matter how little you have drove it.

Note on car inspection says my rear brake pads are '7/32'

Convert that into English.

How much more life do they have?

They are the stock pads that came with my V6 RS and have about 31k on them.

The fronts are 8/32, but I don't care about those....

I had washed it fifteen minutes before. I dusted it, then did a little detailing. Not really a full wax.

Anyway, this is my DD and I've put 30k+ on it in the first two years. It ain't a show car.

What do you do while your wife is in the fabric store?

Polish. Polish. Polish.

Afterwards we got a couple of beers, a bite to eat, and a growler full of Bell's Winter White Ale to take home.

A good Saturday.

And the dealership charged me 48 bucks to inspect, then hand me a printout saying that this is a 'known issue,' that is not covered by warranty.

The printout suggests to stop fast, to lessen the...

I have a thin plain black metal frame that I got at Pep Boys for ten bucks. Blends into the carbon flash and makes the rear appear bigger/muscle-ier, by cropping the plate slightly.

If you are using the paddles, move the stick into D. Then right back into S, if you want the automatic Sport mode, sans paddles.

Easy peasy.
