Still don't like the exhaust pipes. It looks silly. Like something that should be on a 1998 Civic and sound like a pissed off weed-eater.

Now that I think about it, 442's had Trumpet Tips too.

Re: Autoblog review - New pics

Here's another thing I noticed. The panel in the rear does not exist on my Overland. Looks like it's there to clean up some of the airflow underneath, probably for fuel economy.

Re: Autoblog review - New pics

Now, I know the camber is a great assist in handling, but won't that also greatly affect tread wear or is there something I'm not thinking about?

Re: Autoblog review - New pics

Most likely wear of the insides will occur, unless driven spiritedly in twisties or a track......

Otherwise the outside outside of your tires will have "chicken strips"!

It's not an issue if you drive it the way it was intended. This ain't no grocery getter

WOW I am upset they didn't implement the painted exhaust pipes. It is the thing I hate most on my WKII. Why do through the trouble to have black chrome tips with stainless steel pipes hanging underneath. I guess this will be the first thing I paint, lol
