    128,200 miles today.

    Replaced the Valve Cover, snapped a bolt while I was at it (while torquing it with a torque wrench, 72inlb apparently is too much), canned one of the old bolts (same position), removed broken portion from engine block, installed new cover again. Removing the broken thread portion of the bolt was fun, but luckily I could get a hold of it with some pliers and turn it out.

    Old cover with broken bolt and "replacement bolt" removed to new cover.

    Went back out, after getting a drink of water, and washed and blacked out the bow ties.

    Next on the "To Do List," fix/remove the air dam, black out the steering wheel bow tie, removing the Toyota dealership plate brackets, and installing one of the AV Chevy brackets from my truck. Probably next weekend.

    Got the Cruze back today, took advantage of having the day off and the absolutely beautiful weather to swap over to the MSRs and all-seasons since it looks like the next week or two will be in the 60s and 70s.

    You had snow tires last week?
    I took the Pirellis off the Saturn 4-5 weeks ago.
    I hate running snows at freeway speeds when it starts getting over 50 degrees out. That rubber was formulated to run cold.

    We just got the car back from the dealer today - been there since last Monday. I wanted to leave the winters on, since those are on the OEM wheels - and thus use the OEM lugs (the MSRs use spline lugs) - in case the dealer had to take the wheels off.

    With the constant return to winter that Michigan couldn't get away from - or if not, it would be raining - I wasn't going to swap the tires over. I only changed the Volt over the weekend before last week.

    I'm in that situation now. Have to run my de-studded winter tires from Minnesota, down to Alabama for two weeks of 80+ weather.

    Just had my first scheduled maintenance done on my car Well second if you count the first oil change but this was my first owners manual check up @7500 miles. They put 5w30 dexos in instead of 0w20 though which I questioned. The service writer claimed that was standard operating procedure now. I dunno. I'm through my first two free oil changes so I'll be doing them from here on out and I think I'll probably go back to ow20.

    Now just gotta wash all the pollen off this weekend!

    I thought only the Japanese took 0w20, and they burn a little too

    It's possible, I'm not sure. But my oil cap definitely says 0w20 on it and that's what the paperwork for my first oil change from the dealer says as well. Maybe that's just a break in oil? I'm not too sure. I honestly don't think it would make a whole heck of a difference but I just have zero trust in any dealer so I asked the question when I saw that.

    Road trip last weekend from Minnesota to Alabama. Stopped at my nephew's place along the way to change the oil.
