^^ Yes, the Castrol is actually on sale right now at Wal-Mart. At 15.00 a gallon you're not going to find a better ATF for the money, IMO.

Daytime running lights or not, my guess is that they will last you about a year. In the past I put these in a car and had one burn out every 6 months to a year. I have started only using OEM for headlights and they last sooooo much longer.

50% of the cost for new with 70% of the tread as new? I'd rather pay the extra 20% for fresh brand new tires. Plus if you don't fall for the Michelin tire craze you can get a really good deal with rebates. But overall that does sound pretty cool
