      Just a little bit of petroleum product on your tires will ruin them. Good luck trying to save a few bucks.

      Got my car back from the dealer. Brand new PCV seems to be working great.

      (Or as the service guy notated "Customer says PVC valve is bad"

      I'm glad I have it documented, it's too good to make up.

      Heard a weird rubbing/squeak noise coming from my back right side of the car as I drove over the speedbumps at work. No clue what's causing it.

      There's not a lot of room for the dcup to move around in there. I'd jack it up to make sure anyways though.

      Should have went with Podi, the surround on the VDO doesnt match either. That would drive me Crazy.

      Quick update. I checked things out once I got home from the office. Bag isn't rubbing, it's sitting perfectly in place like it should. Decided to drive around the neighborhood, noise sounds to be coming from the trunk. Could it be one of the bilstein shocks? I only hear it when I hit a bump in the road.
