That is a weird one to have an exhaust leak sound like that. Normally it's a tick especially when it's cold. Good catch.

Little update, the cold weather seems to have killed the #4 injector, seems that ~18k run hours is approaching the limit, ha.
Had a complete set of stock spares from when we upgraded the blue car injectors, swapped out the dead injector all is good.

The car let me know it was in need of some time an money. Front end clunk was getting worse, and the familiar dent on the underside of the hood, let me know it was time to address the front suspension.

Cost of new factory parts for the front was close enough to the cost of a pedders coil over set...so that's the route I went.

I only have the fronts on so far, decided to order new top hats for the rear before installing.

Ended up lowering the front ~1.5in which still allows the front bumper to clear parking blocks.

I immediately took it on a ~1200 mile road trip and it was great with the much improved ride.
