Looks terrific!
Is it a replica or OEM?
How much did the plastic flare trims cost? Thanks.

No noise, MUCH softer ride, handling about the same though it feels stickier at high speeds. People who reported noise were usually higher mileage. I work from home so don't put many miles on... I've done only 1k to the car since end of Jan. At this rate I'll only do 5k/year so maybe I'll never have to worry about it (not out there much to begin with).

The biggest question mark about them, personally, will be snow performance as these are all-seasons and I didn't want to change out every year. Will just have to see in 8 more months.

On your last picture, I noticed it reads 349 miles at 9.4 MPG. That seems awefully low for a 3.0.

349 miles is the range left on the what's remaining of the gas (which was full). Those interior pics were taken on day 2 of ownership so the numbers were for local roads and it was brand new. Now at just over 1k miles, it's getting 15-16mpg avg, and trip computer says 17-18mpg when I use it on highways. No noticeable difference otherwise with the 20s/new tires.
