my "build" thread

Are there any build/project forums here? Anyway, putting it here for now :)

I sold my 2020 Odyssey few months ago and put deposit towards MY LR white on white with tow hitch, but of course is moved from Apill all the way to December so I couldn't wait any longer, saw this MX on teslas's used car section and had to get it.
It is 2018 MX 100D with 7 seats, black interior and 29k miles on it.

Next made appointment for full tint, auto frunk and foot sensor for trunk, front PPF and thinking about new tires and wheels since I got summer tires on mine :(
Any options for light weight good looking 20s for reasonable price?

Put my Forgiatos, I was afraid they will be harsh and less comfortable, less efficient but WOW, much better, much quieter than my OEM 20s, much more comfortable, car feels softer. Only downside is decreased acceleration, not as happy as before when I press the pedal :) But that fine :)
And the biggest difference is efficiency, I've driven 70 miles so far, same time, same traffic, even weather is the same, on my previous set I was getting 350-380, now I'm getting 320-330 max... WOW I didn't expect that :)


Better pics are next, time to start using my DSLR :)

Did these take the same lug nuts as stock or did you have to purchase new ones?
 
Just realized I didn't update this thread in a long time
Car is still performing great!

22inch Goodyear Asymmetric 3 tires were gone after 20000 miles of commuting so replaced them with Continental DWS06 Plus
(car is dirty, winter after all)

I lost about 10% efficiency but overall I'm happy. They are louder for sure, but nothing really that noticeable.

Also ordered a set of Unplugged Performance lug nuts to make sure I get more weight savings lol

Fronts were 64.7 lb (with Goodyear tires) now 58.25 lb (including UP lug nuts and Conti tires)
  1. Stock front 20s (Splistream) are 32lb (according to TSportline), 255/45 R20 avg is about 31lb, total 63 lb. Forgiato 22s with Conti tires are just 4.75 lb lighter than stock 20s :)
  2. Stock front 22s (Turbine) are 37.6 lb (according to TSportline), 265/35 R22 avg is about 32lb, total 69.6 lb, that is 11.35 lb more than Forgiatos :)


Rears are 70.2 lb (with Goodyear tires) now 63.85lb (including UP lug nuts and Conti tires)
  1. Stock rear 20s (Splistream) are 33.2lb (according to TSportline), 275/45 R20 avg is about 32lb, total 65.2 lb. Stock 20s are 1.35 lb heavier than Forgiatos
  2. Stock rear 22s (Turbine) are 40.2 lb (according to TSportline), 285/35 R22 avg is about 31lb, total 71.2 lb, that is 7.35 lb more than Forgiatos
Overall saved 6 lb compared to OEM 20s and 18.7 lb compared to OEM 22s :) Based on 1lb of unsprug weight is equal to about 2lb of static weight (according to the internet) I shaved whooping 12 lb off the car LOL

Also replaced stock front speakers with a set from LightHarmonic. Honestly if you thinking about getting just fronts don't bother, stock ones sound the same as new ones. IMO

Next is probably give it a good wash and ordered new rotors back and front from Paragon as these are in pretty meh condition, better stopping power and further weight savings :)
