      After Rubbing the fender paint, will it rust during winters?
      How should it be prevented?

      it will rust if it's rubbed through the paint. Happened to mine 2 seasons ago. It's only surface rust but I can show you a photo tonight if you want. Have to get it repainted this spring.

      sway bar end links. Are they both the same p/n for either side? Or are they right side/left side specific.

      if you are talking about the drop links, that connect to the strut (top) and swaybar (bottom), then they are side specific.

      I have pn: 1J0411315D (LEFT); 1J0411316D (RIGHT), for the 225.

      How do you clean the foam coming out of your a/c vents?


      Also, I'm not sure which would be better, but I'm thinking the K&N would be the better buy. Does anyone have either?

      There are small pieces of black foam that are breaking up from inside my AC vents somewhere and come flying out at me when I turn the AC on. I've been running the AC for a while to get it to spit them all out, and I'm getting less foam now. AC is still cool. Maybe it's a Florida thing..... you know how we Flo-ridas roll

      See? I knew I wasn't the only one. Also, the little privacy lid thing for the trunk is broken. My dumb mom tried to put something in the trunk that was too big for it, closed it, and din't know she broke it until AFTER and pondered, "how did that happen?".

      Moms and sportscars don't mix.

      Anyway, anyone know where you can get a replacement lid cover thing? The plastic on it is broken so it can't be reused.

      Bad news. They are close to $400 new. But sometimes you can find a used one for a lot less.

      I've searched, but I'm not too good at that. What is the smallest size wheel the 225s can go and clear the stock brakes?
