Driving gloves? Ooooo, sixties! :D

Oil - Use Mobile1 synthetic. That´s whhat in it when you buy it.

Washerfluid - In Sweden Turtle Wax has an additive, "Super sight" which is very good, removes insects and other stuff as a breeze.

Headlights - I usually goes for GE "white-stuff". But, the whiter the light, the shorter their life.

Tires - Previously I have been running on Michelins. Now I have Continental Sport Contact 2 (standard mounted on many Porches and other high-performance cars). Exellent handling!
My father is running on Continental Premium Contact. Also very good tires, it reached top markings in many tests, and cheaper than Sport Contact 2

Octan riser - not yet tested any

Oil filter - just use original

Oil- Redline Synthetic 5W30 Oil ( Made for turbocharged engine) or Royal Purple
Break pads- Green Stuff Break Pads
Washerfluid- Defrosting washer fluid (So the fluid won't freeze your whindshiled in the winter.
tires- Anything with a high speed rating, mileage warranty, and good in water
head/fog lights- Eurolight, or anything thats very bright ( I heard ebay has good ones)
Gas/octain riser- I wouldn't use this....just search out some high octane gas (95 or higher)
oil filters- Fram, or the Saab filter would work. this is the least of your worries, since they are all equally good.

its interesting . i once saw a comparison of oil filters...and

fram was one of the worst filters..this was weird cause i was running fram filters on all my past cars..they said the (i forget the brand name,cheapest one....from wall mart) is higher in the rating than fram...dont know if the comparison was accurate but just thought id let yall know..

also there have been posts about changing oil every 5000 miles...def. not used to that...what interval do you guys change your oil and filter at...
