Made the mistake of taking my 6MT to an automatic ar wash where "They drive it through"...BIG MISTAKE

Just noticed a scuff on those beautifull 18" rims from the metal bar wheel aligner in the car wash!!! Anyone know of touch-up paint for those rims??

To everyone: If you have the tire and rim package...DON'T RUN YOUR CAR THROUGH THOSE AUTO CAR WASHES!!! Your rims are bound to get scuffed!!!

Learned the hard way!!!!

This is why it pays to read the forums. This exact topic was talked about months ago. Sorry you had to learn the hard way, crazymofo...[V]

I like it quite a bit... but, it really is just a toy for me. It's only useful when I'm in unknown areas, or going to a new location for the first time, which is rare. But I have found that the Fuel Economy screen has turned out to be quite convenient.

Do you find it's worth the $2k??

worth is relative... but, given that I pretty much decided I was going to load this car up and enjoy it, I'd probably have to say, "yes." The more practical part of me, however, says, $2K is way too much for an "average" product. You can probably spend that much and get a better aftermarket one, but, it won't have the nice integrated look with the popup screen and all.

you thinking of adding one to your G?

I think what Kloh said about the navigation system is the probably the best way to put it for people wondering if they should purchase it. Well put man [grad]

The good news is we also have a 4WD Ford Escape, and my wife and I work at the same company, so on snow days...IT AIN'T LEAVIN THE GARAGE!!! It's just that those Pilot's are WORTHLESS when it get's cold outside!!

Yep! You can mix sizes; it's not a problem.

Where can I get the paint to touch up the rims? I was washing my car this weekend and discovered that I have about an inch and half scuff on the edge of the rim. Now that I see it I can't stop looking at it...

Did anyone ever find actual touch-up paint for the 18"-ers.....or at least has anyone found a good matching paint color??? Someone found a link to a Testors paint that was close match for interior "titanium" trim...hope there is similar experience that can be shared regarding our 6MT wheels.....

"uhh, no officer....how fast was I going??..."

I forgot what forum I read it in, but touch up paint for the flares of a 2001 4Runner Limited match very well.
