    Did some prep for a track rental on Monday. Took a look at the odometer and it appears I may put 250 miles on it this year.

    Wow, thought I was low with a few thou a year! But did take it out for a couple fall outings this past week. Only thing is that the 'TPMS system fault' is now popping up on the highway. The sensors/batteries are original so its time to replace them ($50 a piece installed). Kicked this around on the other board.

    My fiancée brought the G8 a friend.

    She replaced her 06 Nissan that I was able to keep going for a few years. It is going to make someone a fantastic winter beater!

    Her first new car as well [and she deserves everything she has with everything she has dealt with, including me ]

    The deal was good
