Where are you with your odometer?

I’m at 3500 miles over a period of 2.5 months, most miles were put when I first bought it, in the first week.

I have averaged 23.7 MPG with mostly spirited driving. My best MPG was 33.1 MPG at 70-75mph trip from Norther California to Sohthern California.

Issues so far:
- Rail dust deposits in paint. Fixed it myself on the first car wash, beautiful result, zero swirls. I wouldn’t trust anyone to do such a major paint improvement job other than myself.
- Seat sound, intermittent. I care little to none about it and will only fix if the car is forced to be at the dealer for other reasons.
- Rattle in dash, took me 18 hours of diagnosis to find it. I found it, and now that I know where it is I don’t care about fixing it unless something forced me to take the car to the dealer.

Other than that, perfect car.

Iron deposits aren't that bad if you have the right chemicals.

I've had to meticulously clay bar them out in the past, but recently purchase Griot's Iron and Fallout remover and it makes this so painless. Can't believe I didn't realize this existed long ago.

Watch the video in the link, it's really cool how easily it removes these stubborn deposits!

600 miles or so. No rattles, but I am getting some static from one of the speakers on the left side when using my phone via bluetooth. I'll isolate that when I get time.

I work near a railroad yard and this looks like a really great first step in removing that pesky fallout.

Thanks for the tip! We get a lot of this here around the CLE.
