Took the cat out today for a ride to nowhere. Want to get my first 500 miles done and over with. I put about 45 miles on her. I was planning on doing more but all it started to rain (drizzle but the roads were damp) and then the temp dropped suddenly from 42 to 34.. Wet, cold and summer tires. Not a good combo.

I put her in ECO mode for the first time. I really like it for just tooling around. I had an opportunity to really open it up (pic below) but due to the wet and cold I decided it was in my best interest to behave.

I've got 490 miles on her now. I was going to change the oil but decided I'll drive her tommorrow and then change the oil after work tomorrow night..

Very cool if you were here I would go hellcat cruising just for fun at random on the weekends and after hours during the week at least once a week. Thanks for sharing I love that view

Lately, I have only been getting miles by dropping my cat off for service. Two times this week.
That stinks. What happened to your car that require two service visits this week?

The weather changed again this evening. Warmed back up to 42 and it was raining just a drop here and there. Went out in the cat again to do a few things. Came home and I was at EXACTLY 500 miles.

I just came in from changing the oil. I post some info. on the oil change tomorrow. There is nothing particularly hard about it but I think DrBuick said something like it's a pain in the butt and I agree. The pain is how they designed the belly pan. It's two pieces and I think there were 19 fasteners in total that had to be removed. 9 screws (two different sizes) and the remainder where plastic clip fasteners. Going to need to get spares on the plastic fasteners for sure.

Check this picture out.. Each piece of green tape marks a fastener that has to be removed LOL. I feel sorry for the techs that have to do this regularly. What a freaking waste of time. I thought my german cars where a pain. Now way. In fact my current BMW has access ports so you don't even drop the pan. One for the oil filter and one for the drain.

On the bright side the steering rack is a piece of cake to remove ;) (just an observation I made while inspecting everything down there)

Better have your parts guys stock a few dozen of those plastic fasteners. While your at it post up the part number for those if you don't mind and I'll put it in the WIKI. Those suckers won't last long. Good to have a few on hand.
