Just like most other forums, this thread is where you let everyone know what you did to your Gen 8 Camry today!

Feel free to post whatever you did, but please stay on topic.

..and I know it's early, but we're beginning to set it up because the subforum has been created.

Techstream cable arrived... played with a few settings (ie disabled the seatbelt buzzers in the front) cleared some old error codes and will watch to see if any come back.

And tucked the car in the garage to hide from Fiona. Looks like we are going to get hit overnight Friday.

Windshield later on.
I had XR plus 70 put on the front a few months ago. Keep an eye out on the upper dot matrix area near the visors, mine started separating from the shop driving home. This was my 5th vehicle and 2nd windshield done by the same shop so I know their level of work. But they should have blue taped the entire top edge up along the dot matrix this time.

Sold it to a local Lincoln dealer This morning. Bought it new in Jan this year. Paid MSRP. OTD I was in it for $40300. Put 5700 miles on it and the Lincoln dealer still paid me $40500. If I could buy and sell one this way all the time I would have a new one every year.😅. Wife has a new RX450h coming in sometime over the next couple of weeks so I will share with her and then take her 19 RX350 as a hand me down for a few months while I wait for my new MY23 Mustang GT to be built and delivered. I had a 19 Mustang GT and sold it for a good profit and have missed it ever since. Found a Ford dealer that would order me a new one for 2.5% back of invoice so I jumped. It was fine while it lasted.

Have not done much to my 2022 SE since I bought her last November. She currently has 1743 miles and driven one to two times a week. I did install the XSE dual exhaust several months ago but wanted something more. Searched the internet for a muffler replacement that would be OEM replacement with a little more aggressive sound that will not break the bank and if it sounds like shit I can always put the stock ones back on. I like the MagnaFlow exhaust but sounds a little too loud and too expensive. What I found was Top Speed Pro 1 Performance Mufflers.

I called and confirmed that it will fit my 2022 SE, so what the hell I pre-ordered them. Does anyone have these mufflers or any run in with this vender? I checked them out on YouTube and they sounded good and not too loud or obnoxious.

Let me know what you think?
Been awhile just wanted to report in on the Axle-Back Exhaust. Nothing, I canceled the order back in August sometime and no longer interested in making my car sound annoying.

Bought the MotivX oil filter housing removal tool in advance of my first oil change since I bought the Camry...

Did the oil change...

When I got underneath to remove the splash shield to access the filter housing... uhhh... something's missing. Buy used, get used.

Also bought a Kirkland battery at Costco... the one in the car is dated 2017, and I work from home so the car sits a lot... also ordered a spare battery tender lead so I can more easily charge the car once a week if its not being driven.

Car is just rolling over 140,000km, next up is the spark plugs (Denso from Rock Auto).

Changed spark plugs. 2018 XSE V6. Car is at 139,861km, I bought it used around 130k this year. I follow the Car Care Nut's video on 2GR-FKS spark plug change.. bought a replacement OEM intake gasket and throttle body gasket as per his recommendation... plugs are same as OEM (from Rock Auto) Denso.

Shipping box Material property Plastic bag Packing materials Carton



Intake port 'unveiled'... a few drops of oil

New intake gasket...

Cleaned the throttle body, new gasket... watched the Car Care Nut's video on throttle body cleaning first to make sure I was working with knowledge not assumptions...

Spark plugs removed... bottom right is rear right from standing in front of engine. Bottom left is front right from standing in front of engine. Still had some life but fair game for change at 140k km.

All buttoned back up before the engine cover goes on. I took the opportunity to clean some of the dust, dirt, and grime off the visible parts of the upper engine. Car started up like normal, guess that means I hooked everything back up!

Also changed the battery, H6 from Costco (Kirkland). Best price/warranty I could find. Original was dated 08/2017 and at 5 years, with almost 140k km on the car, and relatively unknown maintenance history... I "invested".

Bought a set of 2022 Camry Nightshade edition blacked out 18-inch wheels from Offer-up. They are in perfect condition and the tires only have 3000 miles on them. Going to swap them out with my 2022 SE rims only then sell the SE rims and the tires that came with the Nightshade rims. SE rims are in perfect condition and the tires only have 3000 miles on them, how much do you think they are worth?
