    Annual 2007 Saturn Aura XR wash and shoot

    As some might have read, I was looking into new car washing products and bought some stuff from detailed image. Well they arrived today and got to work and here are the results.



















    PS: Something is different about my car compared to last year. Can you spot the difference? Person who does gets a free cookie.

    Euro turn signal lights? I take chocolate chip.

    Title is a big disappointment. I thought you were sponsoring a wash and bring-your-firesticks target practice afterwards.

    Oh well, I still like cookies.

    Still looks great... My '07 Aura XR is Silver Pearl in color. My lease runs out in about 6 weeks!

    Oops. Forgot to include a picture from last year for reference.




    Also, I know I got a bit lazy this year compared to last years shots.

    Did you take the chrome tape off the grille? Or add it on or something?

    Correct. The Goodyear Eagle F1 all seasons only lasted 8,000 miles. So I put on Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Positions.

    Here is your cookie.



    Overall, I am pleased with the results of the new products I bought.

    Still a great looking vehicle. Are you getting itchy feet yet or will it stay in your fleet for a few years yet?
    Evil begets evil Mr. President. Shooting will only make it stronger.

    A few years. If I had the money, sure I would hopefully buy the Chevy Commodore that is coming, but I don't have the money. Plus, it only has 18,000 miles on it. So it is not even close to being dead.

    Only 8000 miles? That must be the lowest mileage I have ever heard about on any road going tire

    Yep. The most troublesome thing on my car are the tires. The OEM LS2's are self explanatory. They sucked at everything. The F1's wore out at the edges on the front tires. The rear were ok, but they were getting there as well. Goodyear doesn't make the F1's for the Aura anymore so it was an all 4 job. And everyone liked the RE960AS's and I wanted to remain on high performance all season tires.
