Just got it recently and as soon as I got it home I put on a home made Spectre CAI and a Flowmaster 40.....today I replaced the radiator, upper and lower hoses, rotated the tires, installed new INTERSTATE batt., changed the oil,ordered new front bumper,installed new headlights as the haze cleaner didnt affect the look of the old ones any, installed new fog lights, put new shocks on the back hatch, swapped out some blown stock speakers with new Pioneers and a new JVC head unit, and finally took it through the local car wash.....next will be painting of the cladding when new bumper comes in......can't wait!!!!!

Changed the front rotors and pads.

Didn't really need to, but the guy at the inspection station wouldn't pass me till I did. After I got the old parts off, I swear there's at least 30k more miles on them.

I guess it's a trade off....he didn't give me any grief about my non-functioning parking brake, which would have been a bigger PITA to fix than front brakes.

Finally got my SuperCooler installed, haven't really driven it yet but after work Monday in the traffic it will get the real test. Link to where I found out about it
http://www.mallcrawlin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7801 It's super easy and very straight forward.

Cleaned my headlights and adjusted them so that i can actually see at night.

Gonna hook up my cheap Autozone fogs for the second time tomorrow so it will look a little better since I left my bumper off until I can get the KOR radiator support.

This is the cleaner I used, it works very well for the $7 spent.
