    Nothing screams lack of maintenance louder than brake dust on wheels. Seeing this bugs me to no end.

    How far do you go to maintain your vehicles? Me, I’m damn anal, to the point of washing the inside of my wheels. I changed the oil in the wife’s 4Runner today, rotated the tires, checked the brakes and all fluids, then greased all the zerts. I did all this stuff the last time I changed the oil as well and I keep good records of all the maintenance.

    Anyway, while the wheels were off, I scrubbed the inside, and what a difference it makes to the look!

    Wait.. you are supposed to wash your cars?

    Seriously though, the only time mine really gets washed is to remove mud and salt.

    They haven't really manufactured a real car since the 80's. How's that?

    The 80’s ?!?:laugh6::lmfao::pms2:

    There was a dead decade of autos starting in 1973 to maybe 1986 (ending around the time of the grand national gnx) that’s when the industry figured out people wanted some horsepower!

    I went so far as to buy a car with literally 0 maintenance that drives itself and does 0-60 in a shade over 4 seconds.
