      The shop I had mine installed at put it up on a lift, cut the old tips off. Then they had a long skinny pole up from the ground that held the tip in place. The installer got on a ladder so he was...

      I've had mine for about a year and no corrosion. But one is noticeably "tarnished" compared to the other one. Probably because of the flapper sending more exhaust through it when closed. I haven't...

      They are extremely easy. Pop off the little hatch trim, twist the bulb holder out, put in the new bulb. Done. It took me literally ten seconds. 20 seconds if you have two reverse bulbs :laugh:

      Good to know. I've been told differently from a few (including a shop) but like you, I've never had a need to change to a different stage program.

      To answer your OP, no, you cannot have different staged tunes on your car at the same time. You can only have different octanes for the same stage tune.
      For example, you can have [91, 93, 100...

      Order placed. :thumbup: I've been waiting for a bright reverse bulb that didn't require taps or splicing. Having that one little reverse (since I have OEM LED with fog) bulb was pretty weak.

      If there are no bulbs, then it looks like you received rear fogs for both sides (red LEDs and non-replaceable). Definitely not right.

      You are correct. It was build date, not how long it sat at a lot.

      And like everyone has said, cam follower and you should be good to go.

      That sucks. I wouldn't think using OEM bushings would work because the VWR bar is thicker than stock? Good luck. :thumbup:

      While I haven't done it to my R, in my Mini when I upgraded the rear bar, Teflon tape wrapped around the bar eliminated the squeaks and lasted for years.

      Same thing happened to me when I added door warning lights. They eventually started working again, likely after cycling windows or ignition, but I couldnt say for sure.

      I think OEM 19s came with 235/35's. Most tires of that size have a 91 load rating.

      But I've seen plenty of R owners use 225/35's with no problem (me included). I also ran into a tire installer...

      Oh ok. Then you have to swap the two wires mentioned in the first post to get the rear fog to work with the switch. Just changing the coding will not work (as you have discovered). It seems like you...
