After running half a lower grill block for the summer, the zip ties started breaking so I removed it completely a couple months ago. Before putting the whole thing back on for the winter, I did a little refurbishing to the grill block. Here's the result:

Swapped the Ecopias for some Bridgestone Blizzak WS80 snow tires yesterday. This will be the first real winter for the car now that I'm back in Utah. I also have a block heater and a heated seats kit in the mail to keep the engine and hopefully the wife happier in the cold. Still considering the coolant temp spoofer, but I'm going to wait and see how the block heater performs. I'll get some pipe insulation for the upper grill the next time I'm at Lowe's or Home Depot.
