Re: Manifold heat shield necessary or not?

FWIW, I know of a couple people who have had aftermarket headers on their 2.4L Vibes/Matrices and they did not re-install the exhaust manifold heat shield and seemingly had no issues. I personally wouldn't risk it, but it's your Vibe not mine. You could always try finding a used one and painting it ...

Re: Is Stabilitrak a Must Have For Driving in Snow?

FWIW, traction control and side air bags are standard on ALL 09-10 Vibes.

I will be getting Blizzak WS80s for both our Vibes before this winter hits. We've been fine the past 9 winters with all season tires, but we're due for new tires so I figured I'd give the Blizzaks a go this time around.

Props on posting a picture right away! It looks great with the OEM 17s! Fog lights actually aren't that bad to install. Disabling the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is also super easy . You should consider starting a thread in the Garage Forum to document any future modifications, etc ;).
