I polish the hell out of my magnaflows and then put a coat a wax on them. Years later they still look great on my CS. That'* not saying much since I put 500-1000 miles a year on that car. lol

went to go to work on the scoot, flat tire. took the car. had to work a 12 because my closer didnt show up. had to swerve real hard to avoid someone hitting me in a roundabout on the way home and the sub/amp slid across the trunk and busted my rca jacks out of the amp. came home, installed the new tube in the tire put air in it and went for a ride. drove over a nail. today has been fantastic.

dropped the car off at the body shop, they gave me a camry to drive. as rentals go its pretty good. doesnt make my butt numb and gets decent mileage, has a pretty cool analog average mpg meter. but like all those things its very anonymous, if i have to park it somewhere i am going to have to use the lights to locate it among all the other gray foreign midsize cars. according to enterprise its a full size, i laughed when she said it.

spoke too soon, about not making my butt numb, hurts my back too after about 20 minutes of driving. i dont get why foreign cars take a otherwise pretty good car and put rock hard seats in it, aside from reliability i would think its the most important thing in the car. cant wait to get my car back

Yup that is the biggest complaint I have with my 2008 Lancer. Uncomfortable for anything other than local runs. Handles great, suspension reacts well, but I always feel a little sore after a long drive.

i have driven a bunch of different rentals and most have been this way. you would think this one though is a le model, has all the interior upgrades, (alot of them better than my car) would have decent seat but apparently not. normally i wouldnt complain but the guy from enterprise called me to ask if there were any issues, and i told him it made my back hurt and he said he might be getting something different tomorrow, didnt say what
