      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.
