    What if the hood only was silver in the front, meaning all around the grill was changed to black and the silver stopped and the end of the hood - maybe that would help with the flow???
    I'm open to any suggestions. I'm gonna get the car touched up when I'm back in the states anyway so now is the time to get ideas

    If you are a military man from the great US of A stationed overseas, then I thank you kindly for your service - but Stop with the "graffiti talk" (first post) and communicate intelligently with pride soldier.

    It's not words that define a soldier, it's his actions. I've served for 10 years so far, 2 tours to war zones and 2 over sea duty assignments. I believe I earned my freedom of speech and protect yours as well.

    Just some FYI , I installed the pulstar spark plugs yesterday and WOW! Very effective and a noticeable difference in the ride quality. I highly recommend them. A bit pricy but worth it in my book.

    Just FYI, I installed the pulstar spark plugs yesterday and there is a BIG difference. Ride quality is very smooth and I feel a lot of power when I press the gas. I have tried different irdium plugs before and these are definitely worth the money. Just make sure you get the right model. I have a 2006 3.6 and I use the e1xxx, don't remember the rest of the model number

    Side note...A person earns their right to Freedom of Speech by being born in the US or being born to US citizens. Much praise for your service, but your rights are not contingent on your service to the country.

    How do you define 'ride quality' ? IME, it can only be affected by tires/wheels/suspension...

    Absolutely but service members are referred to as "protectors of freedom and the American way of life". I didn't join for special recognition or "at a boys", I join because I believe in what our military stands for and I wanted to contribute. Thanks for your support and let's get back to car talk, this is getting awkward :-)

    Smooth acceleration, great response on the gas pedal and nice get up and go when you want to sprint. Ride quality had no text book definition brother, It's all opinion based.

    Ive never heard anyone refer to smoothness of power delivery as an affect on 'ride quality'...thats a new one to me. Look at it this way. You can have smooth acceleration with really soft springs just like you can have smooth acceleration with really hard springs. Great response on the gas pedal, ime, is a reference to throttle response...again Ive just never heard that referred to as 'ride quality'...Nice get up and go, is another one. You can have good get-up whether the suspension is firm or soft. Each of the factors you mention can be qualified regardless of the how hard or soft the suspension is. 'Ride quality' ime is how the car rides over smooth and rough surfaces, expansion joints, broken pavement, etc...
    Do many in your area refer to it the same way? Is it something you picked up in the US? Im just curious as we get alot here from different parts of the world, and I love understanding languages and how theyre used differently.

    Hey guys I just added custom floor mats and the ride quality is CRAZY. Night and day difference. Car takes bumps way better and I think my cornering improved!

    Yea it's Dino tested and everything. There were reviews from people who added the floor mats that claimed 20-30 hp gains. Plus they walk faster when they get out the car
