    Yes. Trick is to put the nozzle in at an angle to allow the gases to escape as you fill up. I stick the nozzle in about 2-3 inches and then press down.

    you said the magic word... Sister /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    seriously though, shouldn't be any logical reason for it. I'd check it with the dealers....

    the car rode very well on the 18's before i had it lowered. it's still comfortable, but you do FEEL the road now!

    Warranty, simple I just take it off when visiting the dealer, only takes 5 mins
