Ignoring how awful everything about that setup is right now, are you really that lazy? It takes 3 seconds to tighten a lug nut. There's no reason not to do it. I'm not sure you understand the purpose of lug nuts.

maybe. I'm only like 5'6" and skinny so it's hard to say.

It's very loud and sounds good but it is slow. If/when I get motivated and have time to work on it again, I really want to replace the exhaust. I had a Racing Beat cat-back on the RX-8 and it sounded really really good so I'd probably get that for the 7.

I've worked in a automotive repair shop for the past 3 years I'm not an idiot. I know what lug nuts do and I was fitting the skirts to see how I liked them before I sand and paint them.

A car should NEVER be on the ground with loose lug nuts.

Working at a shop doesn't mean anything. Just this past week one of my friends had a shop **** his car up real bad. There are millions of horror stories from shops.

They're weren't just turned a few turns they're finger tight so the weight of the car wouldn't be out further on the studs just a millimeter or two out than they would be if they were tight.

Why torque them on if you're taking them off 2 minutes later? In my book it's a waste of time. I work my way you work your way. Jeep your thoughts to yourself cause I do t want to hear them.

If I've been at the same shop for 3 years clearly I've been doing my **** right.

The studs aren't supposed to hold the weight of the car at all.
