    Is that a 2-tone paint job, or a wrap? either way, it's hideous

    The new Acura NSX, driven by what else, an old guy! Looked sharp in person on the road where it belongs.

    Not new, but very orange! (Actually this is a wrap).

    I'm pretty sure I've seen one of those (or perhaps a 911) locally in that orange shade.

    That was an actual color, at one time. Local guy had it on a Boxster. I like it.

    Doesn't Ruf (the tuner) like that color, and a green? Both remind me of:

    120 months from now is the real fun.

    @$500/month you'd have that paid off in a spiffy 396 month loan at 0% interest.

    I volunteer! I'm particularly needy, super-4door-wise...

    See what a 2009 E63 is worth today. The bigger they are, the harder they fall, especially without an exotic body (also a fun case where wagons have significantly better values).

    Well if you aren't actually needy when I arrange to donate it to you, you certainly will be about 6 months after you own it.

    THIS IS THE PRICE FOR ONE SHOCK--and at a discount store!

    That rotor is pretty expensive considering all those holes in it. :)

    Yet, $52 for the Centric brand. Prime example of why I rarely buy OEM.

    Are those any good? I have heard pros and cons. I wonder if Wilwood makes rotors for the AMG--they make a very good rotor.

    I bought them for our previous T&C after the stock ones warped and I read that was common. The Centric worked fine and never warped.

    More often than not, brake rotors do not in fact warp. It's the brake pads causing the wobble. Lots of upsell on rotors.

    Next time anyone wants to sell you new rotors, have them show you on a dial gauge.

    I guess on some cars, it doesn't matter much if you buy new rotors, but at $1,000 a pop it does!

    curious: how do pads cause a wobble?

    I don't fully recall, but I believe it is likely I replaced the pads first, vibration remained, so I went back and replaced the rotors. At least, that's the route I would take now, so I can only assume that's what I did then. ;)

    Lots of debate on if rotors can be used more than one pad set on "performance" vehicles driven the way they were meant to be driven. Apparently OEM rotors sometimes cut out thickness for weight loss at the expense of being able to be used more than one set of pads.
