if you keep your sanity, that's why I'm going spineyes

plus if you tend to cruise around crowds of people walking, it will keep them from staring at you wondering what's messed up with a new car.

oh man does it work..it fit like a glove compare to the one i bought from advanced auto part..no more squeaky..yay..i'm so glad i purchase this..installation took 30sec after you remove the old belt..it's easier if you took off ur passenger side tire and drop the underside plastic to expose the pulley..so yeah..i highly recommend them to anyone of you with squeaky problem..although i feel like, at first, acceleration reaction is slower..but maybe it's just me or maybe the belt is being break in slowly..
