      i think the 2001 was a GLS and the 2003 was a GL. Look on the sticker on the floor of the trunk - it should have the trim level on it.

      I don't think the plastic blank "snaps out" - I'm pretty sure that you have to cut it out.

      I like the wheels but they do make the brakes look a bit puny :) .

      I'm thinking about running the 17x7.5 ET35 with 225/45-17 Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Anybody running 17inch summer tires want...

      No, the front parking light - the one in the headlight that you can see looking from in front of the car.



      And you did you measure this???

      When you say that you checked the fuses - did you check to see if you are getting 12volts going to and from the fuses? Have you checked the high/low beam dimmer switch?

      Not sure what that is supposed to tell us - that your lights melt snow banks? That would have been very helpful in Boston this winter! :)

      If you want to offer a comparison try taking pictures of...

      Not sure that I'm following you - the fuse blows but you are still getting 12volts coming from it when it is blown?

      Does the front parking light on that side work?

      No - I think he means euro' parking lights - the turn signals. You don't need a euro' light switch for that - they are turned on with the turn signal stalk.
