A. My car has the afterblow feature enabled but it always dirties the interior of the car whenever it turns on. It blows out dust (which doesn't bother me too much, it's going to get dirty anyways) and particles (which does bother me). Should the cabin filter be preventing this?<p>B. What is the soft material that is on the dashboard and what should I clean it with? <p>C. Yesterday, someone was moving my car, and when they let the clutch out (which is original @ 94K), the wheels started shuddering, as in axle hop. Could this be my QBM solid strut bar mount keeping the motor so tight that it is shaking the wheels?<p>D. I installed Sylvania Ultra headlights and have noticed that the light pattern is straight, but the left headlight scatters differently than the right. Is this normal?<p>E. How is the road noise on your S60? Mine seems to be quite loud.

D: i have ultras too and my left is different than right, dont know if its supposed to be lol. i also have condensation in the right, so that could have something to do with it. also, left light seems to aim right too much.<p>E: your OBM Strut Bar will cause more vibration, i.e. road noise..........................tires?.................bearing?

Like JRL said, check the cabin air filter (under the cover below glove box). Mine was installed incorrectly in service, basically crushed in and it would pass all the dust from outside into the cabin.

Re: Just Some Questions (JRL)

I know my tires were shuddering because my car was being washed when it was moved to the finished section. I observed the car being moved from the guest area, which is where I saw the shuddering--it was bad enough to make me think the bolts were going to come off of the wheels!

The left headlight should be aimed slightly away from traffic. I think it's a standard concept on all cars to cut down on blinding opposite drivers.
