      Just Ordered: 20th AE style, amber markers with the VXT DS2 HID upgrade. Super excited for these! Been wanting to do some HID reps for many years on my last car, now the .:R finally gets 'em.

      One last thing I though of. Are the dual blinkers lenses both set up to blink? if so would it be possible to wire one of them to act as a DRL, would doing this myself void warranty?

      It's ridiculous how good these stock wheels look on this car. Mine came with winter tires on them. I want to find other wheels for winter ones and keep these as daily wheels!

      Congrats on the pickup! I test drove this car a couple weeks back. Drove great, but I decided to hold out for a blue one. This car was a good deal for sure.

      I had this same problem. It turned out that I had the coolant sensor wire plugged onto the wrong sensor on the block. Double check that all of your spade connectors are on the right sensors.

      Odd, I hear that the Siemens 630s have a terrible spray pattern, which causes cold start issues with them.

      BNIB Garret 50 trim

      I ordered this turbo thinking my old one was pushing oil through the seals. When I got the old one off it looked fine (ended up being valve stem seals burning the oil) so I have no need for this.
