Ordered a Radium coolant cap to replace the OEM.

OEM cap doesn’t look bad on the coolant expansion tank.

Radium Cap installed for the “completeness” factor. Looks nice, but literally takes 20x the effort to screw on compared to OEM. Had to press with everything I had using both hands.

It is a little disappointing the Radium coolant expansion tank does not come with this cap standard and makes you purchase it separately :(

The sight glass level also developed this annoyingly air bubble. Tried tapping it to get it to go away, but no luck. Hopefully won’t have to pull the tank and re-tighten the fittings

Mine has the same air bubble. It comes and goes. I wouldn't worry about it.

Nice. Which one did you go with and how long is the recording time?

Apeman C860. it was actually a gift so I wasn't going to ask for anything too expensive. great value for what it is. definitely not the best on the market but it's clean looking and a great starter setup for me.

I've been running the APEMAN front and rear camera with a 128gb card and super happy with it. Just picked up the same one for my other vehicle. For the price it's worth it.

I installed my Borla Atak yesterday. I kept going back and forth on a number of exhausts and bought this one based on styling, price and sound. I took advantage of Black Friday pricing. So far happy with the sound. I'm still playing with the sound plates provided to see what I like the best .
