Thanks! Both the armrest and headlights have done well for the 10 miles I've driven since installing them. Now for those 700 miles back to college this weekend.

Tried 80 PSI in my tires for the trip down to college post-spring break instead of my normal 60 PSI. Insight performed amazing - 85.3 MPG over 705.2 miles. 88.3 MPG for the first leg, and 82.1 MPG over the last leg that's mostly mountains. Was averaging ~10 MPG better going up the mountains, ~15 MPG better at speeds <50 MPH, and ~5 MPG better at speeds >50 MPH. Of course the IMA is still disabled for better highway fuel economy.

For comparison:
First trip to college with the car: 78.2 MPG
Spring break trip home: 78.4 MPG

Only fuel economy modifications since last trip were a 3' x 3' underbody panel, 80 PSI in the tires, and a warm air intake that actually works now.

Temp varied between 31 and 49 degrees F. Cruising speed varied between 40 MPH (up the steepest mountains) and [insert incriminating speed] MPH on the downhills. Trip time was the same as the other trips.
