    Ok. so something is seriously wrong. Maybe it happened the same day and I didn't notice it before, but now my driver side mirror is melting too.

    Yes my grill and my driver side mirror's plastic is seriously melting and curling up like a raisin. I'm in San Jose for work and forgot to take a picture, but lets just say it looks like shit.

    Something's wrong here. This isn't right. It isn't even summer yet. Seriously confused.

    Is there some kind of coating over the plastic? Like some kind of clearcoat? The stock plastics should not be doing that, not even if there were 10 years old or more!

    Or have you ever wiped down your plastics with something sketchy? There's a ton of cleaning chemicals that would "burn" the plastics on the truck...

    Quick question. Does anyone have a grille that they are willing to let go for a small fee or free? I just need the outer part of the grill but I just found out they dont sell just that part.

    Yeah seems like buying is a pain. I've found a lot of condos, well a few at least, with renters already on a lease, and no plans of leaving...

    I guess I'll keep off the strip then, insurance really goes up with an address closer to the strip? That's shitty... should be a city or county wide thing! I hate insurance companies.

    On the smog test thing, is there a visual part? Or do they just test the tail pipe emissions and call it a day?

    Visual checks would be at the DMV for VIN inspection when you first move here, or at least my bike and an air-bagged truck I owned were both scrutinized during that process. So I guess it depends on the overall look of the vehicle in my experience.
