Gearing up to head back to university in a little over a week. Changed the oil and polished the headlights today.

Turns out that one of the 2 chips on the driver's side LED went out, so I'm looking into their warranty and will probably switch to HIDs using a plug-n-play kit from the DDMTuners site (https://ddmtuning.com/DDM-HID-Kit-Sl...ast-35W-or-55W). Debating between 4300K and 5000K for color. If I end up doing this I'll be aiming the headlights a bit lower until I can install projectors this winter or spring.

Black vinyl wrap comes tomorrow or Friday so i can redo my mirror deletes and grille block. The full lower grille block makes the engine get a little warm in the WV/VA mountains if the temp is >85 *F, so I'll reduce it down to about 80%.

I want to get the bumper repainted but I'm waiting until I move off of a dirt road, as I will be extremely OCD about any chips after it's repainted.
