    Waiting for parts to arrive is worse than waiting for sex.

    Removed 12 pounds worth of stuff yesterday, yes I weighed it, that bored. Removed old lug nuts from when the dealer put the lock nuts on the wheels out of the car. Pulled out the rear cargo mat and spare set of floor mats thats been sitting in my trunk since I bought the car. Also went through my glove box and pulled out the manufacturer car pouch that contains all the warrantee/safety info + Car Owners manual. Filed away the important stuff, threw out what was in another language, started cutting large amounts of the useless "filler" type things from the manual(Example: Other language stuff, Wear seat belt, this is your door nob, this is the gas door, etc..). About 1.5 pounds of paper work alone and my car manual now only contains useful info :laughing:

    After an insane amount of BS between that low-life seller and Paypal dispute, he was eventually forced to send me the parts, albeit a month late. :rolleyes: Surprisingly they actually were the right parts, arrived in decent condition so got em installed with the help of Senior Krazie.

    Stock Rotors Weight: 50.86 Pounds
    R1 Performance Weight: 49.2 Pounds

    A whopping 1.6 pounds weight savings haha. Honestly I was expecting 5 pounds at least. Probably placebo effect but steering feels lighter, more of the weight saved was in the front as they are much beefier rotors. Brakings nice and grippy now, loving that and they look freaken sexy!

    Got the new OBDLink MX installed in the car plus the new tracking software for the laptop.

    Getting base model readings set up. Spare fuel line showed up in the mail yesterday. So I have one I can mangle for this fuel preheating system, should be set up within the next month.

    Also starting to get the window tinting put on, going 35% all around, just enough to give some privacy without being annoying at night.

    Hard to say. I've never had to do it, i've heard some just get stuck on with a high quality double sided tape.
