Is VPP Still Functioning in Mar/Apr 2013?

I've been quiet here for a while -- just enjoying my 09 PWP/touring w/ persimmon seats, now getting close to 40K. It was disappointing to see the salesman who helped me with the VPP in 2009 was now...

My 09 was brand new, and so far I've had zero problems with it. (36K miles). This is exceptional, and unexpected.

You'll find a 2009 thread here on Bosch Compact 100s ... if you go out to Google and type in those words, you'll come back in to a 370Z gallery that shows a 2004 Acura TSX we had "treated".

New tires are almost always quieter than ones with little treadlife left. The rubber soaks up the vibrations.

I ordered my tires oversize (20mm front, 30mm rear) in order to get a matched pair that would fit the 18" (base) rims. That gives me a wider rubber contact patch and slightly better curb protection...

I think he wrote his sizes wrong. Definitely needs more research in this forum. (I put +1 on my 18s and they're great.)

Ben,

FWiW, I got my wife one of the first ML-320s in 98. We used to enjoy driving around that first year, spotting maybe 1-3 other MLs a week. Then the vehicle got too popular.

Another factor: We don't know how strongly the general public will react to the Japanese Fukiyama problem. A 2010 (or 2009) is clearly outside the danger zone, meaning it may depreciate less.

You may be surprised to hear them, a few minutes later, recite the exact same performance stats for the GTR. But that's part of how they can justify a race, for ... "pinks".

200 MPH - The 370Z Movie!

OK, these are the best shots (2 of the OEM Advans, then 2 of the new Conti DWS). The wider tires fill the wheel well better, and don't stick out (if that's what you're worried about).
