It sounds like you need to check your pinion angles to fix the vibrations instead of going through the trouble of doing a sye and it not fix after all the work because of shotty pinion angles

I guess there are some other spots that are kind of damp. Under the car mats especially, though I think that's from the winter season and it not getting warm enough to dry them out completely. (Or it could be from this leak as well)

But I've never had this happen. Another thought was maybe the mass amounts of water could have caused an overflow in the drainage system for the sunroof?
I'll try the damprid, they sell it where I work. Thanks for the suggestion!

I can't speak on how they sound off HU power, but once you get an amp and put some real power to them, sub or no sub, you'll be incredibly surprised. The amp doesn't necessarily make them louder, it just provides clean power at the upper volume levels. That'll allow you to listen to music louder, longer, and with less fatigue. You'll understand what I'm talking about once you amp them. I give mine about 120 RMS. They take every bit of it.

plasti-dipped my wheels, took off my roof rails and painted those. Waiting for good weather to do the rail itself on my roof while attached...bought a safari rack to go on after that.

Not sure why, but when you can't turn, it doesn't charge & it heats up it broke (i.e. belt came off). My guess is the crappy aluminium they make them out of.
