Did you notice buttons / vents / things not working as smoothly as they used to? ex: the hazard button or the TCS button.

Did something small and relatively easy, but got rid of an irritation. I didn't like having to leave the ashtray door open when I plugged in my phone charger; also didn't like the cable just flopping over the center console. So, today I decided to do something about it and ran the cable down, inside the console, and pulled just enough through where plastic trim meets the carpet to come up to where it plugs into my phone. Sometimes it's just the little things ..

No real issues to speak of. The top vents don't travel as far up/down as they did prior to the install, but they still move enough to get the job done well. The traction control button was worrisome at first, but after playing around with it a bit, it works just as it did prior.

Got the front & rear sway bar end links installed. Took care of most of the suspension clunks I was hearing.

Got new rear tires installed. Sanded/polished/ceramic coated the wheels while I had them off.



Painted the calipers while I had the wheels off.


Had the passenger side exhaust/muffler out attempting to replace with a more open flow muffler but the ones I ended up with are too long to fit. Put the old pipe back in. I did drill the pipe for the muffle mod while I had it out. Will drill the driver's side later.

Changed the oil.

New tires need some scrub in time...spun a bit just pulling out of the driveway without even trying!

Glad none of you guys did this to your C6 this weekend. Looks like it took only about a day.
