    We just picked up our MS yesterday and have put on 100 miles on it so far. I noticed one side of the rear wheel area getting a lot dirtier than the other side and was wondering if this was normal for a new car. Perhaps new tires and such just breaking in but it seems uneven on both sides.

    That is caused by the excess 'Tire Glaze liquid' being slung off the sidewalls of the tire.

    You may want to wash it off carefully and avoid full bore acceleration runs for a while as it made my car a bit 'squirrely squirelly' going down the road to homebase, the traction control probably had its hands full.
    Now where is my Quaife LSD.
