Did mine, too. Iwouldn't call it a "swish" job--it wasn't fun getting down to the ground connection they showed in their instructions. And my hands are small.

Programming the visor wiped my garage button. Then I had to read how to set multiple things on Homelink. And then get my garage working again (with it's rolling code generator). A little frustrating... LOL

Nothing to the motor just wanted to turn up the boost to around at least 15 lbs so all new forged motor, cam and all the good parts. All new block sold the stock motor to help recover some of the cost. New set LT ported heads also. Cant wait to get her on the rollers but more then that cant wait to warm weather to take her to the track. Robert

Replaced OEM battery today with advance auto AGM h6 battery. Found an on line coupon for 25% off and took the plunge. Been having low battery alerts for several months now on my 2015 and after a 6.5 hour trip down to Atlanta seeing battery voltage at 13.2v for 90% of the trip and then a sudden spike to 15.2v thought it was time. Interesting thing was when I took the battery back for core charge return I had them load test it and it checked out good...turned it in anyway as I wanted piece of mind.
Fyi, anyone doing this the battery is pia to get out. I bought a battery strap that hooks to the terminals and wiggled it out then returned the strap with the core. Whole job took under 30 minutes.

Washed and hit it with the new Megs hybrid ceramic wax. Didn't strip wash or anything. Followed directions for the first application; wash, rinse, apply and dry. I then went around and gave it a quick buff. First impression is that this stuff is much like Adam's H2O Guard in terms of viscosity and application. Application was easy and no streaking on silver paint or glass. Results are nice shine and a slick feeling finish. Kind of an overcast day so the picks don't show the reflection. Anyway, works well. SIO2 claims better than Adam's H20 Guard. Remains to be seen.

I agree on the PITA to get out did the same thing on a batt strap also for as small as the batt is that dam thing is heavy.. Robert

Thanks for asking. I use CarPro Iron-X to chemically decontaminate. Then I used Griot's Wheel Cleaner with foam pad to get them clean. Then I polished with Blackfire Finishing Polish and White Foam pad on my RA polisher. Finished them off with Blackfire SiO2 Sealant (4 coats). Of course, getting them off the car makes it so much easier to accomplish this task. I do this once a year after I put the car away for winter. During the driving season I use a Daytona Wheel Brush to reach through the spokes and lots of Chemical Guys Honeydew soap. I don't let they stay dirty very long because all the brake dust is abrasive and left on them will cause damage. Hope this helps you.

C7 stayed parked in garage today. Too much fantastic NFL Football on TV today. It's also an extremely cold cloudy day with temperatures that never got out of the 30s.

I replaced the cheap plastic factory air dam, fender flares, and 3/4 length carbon flash side skirts with APR Performance Carbon Fiber Stage 3 air dam, fender flares, and full length side skirts. My 2018 GS (aka the Blue Mamba) is looking sinister.....��

Sweeeet! Who did that work for you and did that require changing out the hood? If you don't mind me asking, what was the installed price?

I got the C.F. driveshaft all put back together & back into the TQ tube. Two weeks max and should have the front & rear cradle all back into the car with new forged motor back in. Then start the tuning on her... Robert
