The right front did look a little low in the latest pics.... looked like a dog might have peed on the wheel too.

I've driven it twice since. One to the bowling alley for league night last night and this morning to the office. EVERY TIME I came to one of those places we all know about on our ways to work where we can get on it around a corner or on ramp there would be someone in front of me going really slow. I'll find out more here in a bit.

But as far as just riding it seems to be the same as the XAs but possible a bit more gliding. Hard to explain. Almost as if had a position up or down that it was trying to maintain at all times. No humps. Like when I hit a bump it seems that it is going to be harsher but then isn't.

I'm totally butchering the explanation. I'll know more later.

Nope. Water is good. Oil level is good. On the lower side but still in the good reading. Leaking a small bit at the bottom of the pan. Looks like the plug.

I'd say normal. Condensation from the pcv system, the lines to the can and the can itself + the oil it's catching. Looks right.

Pretty easy on the radius bushings, right? Got my car aligned today

Wow, nice and yucky. How much does it smell like gas? Could be condesation plus being supercharged some extra fuel in it.

I run Redline oil and every time I have emptied mine it just looked like dirty Redline. Redline is green to start out with. Looks to be some water mixed in there for sure. Can't see your video's from work.

Ok, I remember that mod it was last winter. Radius arm bushings right? You will like them. Time for you to get out on a road course for a day.

Drove the bowling night tonight.
