Is it me or are the rear wheels pushed forward in the wheel well?
I think it's an optical illusion due to him turning (e.g. it's not a true side shot) and all the dark coloring, but now that you point it out it does look weird...
That's just the four wheel steering working.

I didn't notice that until Bill said something. Very weird.

Tried to take mine out on Sunday and got caught in a terrible thunder storm. Pretty crazy when you can't see but only a few feet in front of the car.

Fortunately, we survived for another day. Gosh... it reminds me... I gotta get those coil packs changed out! Ugh!

Tried to jump it (been sitting for a month or so) so the wife could drive it to an appointment that give it a little exercise, but the jump pack recommended by someone with a related name wouldn't open the frunk :(

So I'll have to dig out the proper cables this evening to pop it open.

OK, so maybe a dumb question. I have been following 808Bill's AOS / hydrolock issue. In that thread, someone suggested replacing the MAF even though the car is not throwing a CEL as a performance upgrade. The thinking being that even if the MAF isn't having trouble its probably dirty and not working optimally.

I have no record of any PO replacing this, and I am at ~75K mileage wise. Given how easy this is, should I replace my MAF as a maintenance item?

I typically clean to see if there is improvement before replacing.
