    What's the cheapest kind out there? FK Silverline? Not going for that slammed look... just want to eliminate most of the wheel gap. I figured I should go stainless steel since the winters here suck. (lots of road salt) Thanks!

    I was wondering how much of the evap. system I could get rid of. Charcoal canister? hoses to it? Any other hoses? Salt and pepper switches are gone and hoses. No smog test where I live. I was going to leave the valve cover to air cleaner hose... I know it needs to breath. Rich

    Auto, AWD, Alpine Grey + option 18" NewYork Alloy wheels + option TGM Mat kit. $29,000 before tax, title, license etc. plus 1.9% financing. ConsumerReports reckons I should negotiate for $28,529 for this spec taking into account holdbacks etc. so I think I did reasonably well there. ;)

    I did not purchase the undercoating from the dealer when I got the car in the summer. I'm now in the process of looking into getting this done in the next week or two. Should I look at going to the dealer for this or to a specialist like Rust Check? What type of coating should I look for? I...
