Re: vibenvy's Garage - 2009 Liquid Platinum Metallic Vibe GT

This past Thursday, April 11th, the Vibe and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary together! As an anniversary present, it will be getting an exterior and interior detail, along with new struts and brakes all around within the next few weeks :D! Also, yesterday, April 13th, it turned over 88,000 miles!

Re: 09-10 GT header?

How significant of an effect do you think the Megan Racing headers would have. Especially if I intend to have the ECU tunned? Probably minimal.

I picked up a set of Camry wheels on ebay. Offset isn't quite the same, but close enough they should work.
We've been using Camry 16" steel wheels as winter wheels on our 09 GTs since the winter of 2009 without any issues.
