Front driver and passenger rotors resurfaced
Driver side rotor was the most warped which is odd because that caliper is just over a year old
After bedding the brakes the driver side rear caliper has begun to stick
Disassembled and cleaned caliper and pads but the results have been underwhelming so far

Towed home after no start - 10/25
Fuel pressure seems good so I suspect spark was the issue; probably caused by crank position sensor
Cleaned and reseated the electrical connector multiple times
Car started in warm weather today

Replaced washer reservoir and pump

Cleaned IAC electrical connector due to continued high RPM's with foot off gas after cold start
