  1. I’ve had My sub for 2 years. Very low mileage due to pandemic. I’m starting to get emails and phone calls to buy extended warranty. I’m only concerned about all the computer parts and eyesight, head unit etc. Is there such a thing as a warranty just for that stuff?
  2. Narrowed my color selection to Horizon Blue Pearl, Magnetite Gray Metallic, or Crystal White Pearl. Anyone own a 2021 with either of these that can provide feedback on color selection? Is the pearl not as shiny as the metallics?
  3. Does anyone know exactly how much fluid the torque converter takes on the newer xv. The dealer stated 3.4 L which I put in but when I check my dipstick it’s way over the full line. Being ocd about everything I had to drain it out and start over 😂.
  4. Just installed these on my wife's 14 xv. Smooth as buttah at 70mph. She absoluyely loves the look, and as a Jeep owner I am impressed with these at's. Can't wait for her feedback this winter. I love the 3PMSF rated k02s in the snow ehen I had them on my Jeep, so I feel these will perform equally...
