The rest of the car looks OK, but I couldn't stand the dirty M parallels anymore, so I took 20 minutes and washed them off before going to work. This is the 1st time I've caved in to this element of the obsession, I know others do. I had hoped to be 'stronger', but continue to succumb to this insidious illness. And you know, the 7 seems to go faster w/ clean rims! Looking forward to getting the Mintex Reds soon.
