Yeah. I don't want anything to do with any Firestone product any more. Not once I had a set that almost killed me. I use Michelin, some kinds of Goodyear, Continental and maybe Toyo.
The Michelin Premier AS tires I got are amazing in the rain. Made a whole lot of sense given I commute long distances and this tire maintains wet traction even worn.

Total noob question, but when I removed the license plate housing I couldn't figure out how to take the bulb out of that little plastic housing :/ (halp plz)

Loving it to death. unfortunately I commute long distance so racking up miles quick.
Wow, I'd love to see some pics of that! Maybe an exhaust clip?

Popeyes haha.

Well you can still be artsy, it's just that such tall pics look weird on a regular computer screen. But you can still stand back and get the background/sky in the pic with the car, rather than try and get as close as possible.

Oh wow nice! The Facebook is nice as well. Well nevermind about my pic then haha.

But yeah, I've experimented with vertical pics, and the only thing that I can really use it for is on wheel fitment or top-down car pics.

Like this (really old pics):





But even then, it's better to get the shot in landscape if possible.

Don't remove the entire housing for the license plate lights.

Remove the 5 or 6 panel clips and lower the trim. You'll see a clear, large tab shaped like this:

<=O=>

Grab it, twist it left and remove it, then simply pull the old bulb out. Push new one in, check your polarity, then put the clear tab back in and twist right to lock.
