      I am SO sorry that you have to put that crap on the front of your car . . . I refuse to register my car in a state that forces you to do that.

      For sure... I will be removing it... dealer had already put it on when I got to the lot. I didn't order it so I did not have a choice.

      Can you provide some details on the ESP fully disable mod? Sounds like something I would like for my car.

      Going to pull the ABS fuse and wire in a kill switch... so I can shut the fuse off without having to manually pull it.

      Work in progress... I will do a writeup when I get it done.

      Little photo shoot with the cell phone. Loving this car. The OEM 17" Denvers are perfect for snow duty... planning on PLastidipping them next week.




      Snow Tires mounted up... someone wanted to see...










      And I sent away for another plate, so I don't really care about it being online.

      Here are the two screws to remove when doing the side markers. Just lift up the fender liner and you can push the tab on the side marker from behind.

      ATP markers... not as flush as stock, but they do look 100x better smoked... I may buy some lamin x and do the stockers.

      Could the backs of the side markers be ground down a little with a dremel to get them to sit more flush?

      Probably... my dremel is in CT and I am in MA, so I didn't have anyway to try. I figure they take 5 minutes to swap, so I can always try later. (Won't ever happen, lol)

      Please get that dealer lettering off the hatch! Man I hate it when they do that. Of course, I will be removing the "R" from my hatch and grille. No reason to announce it is an R.

      Something is missing...

      Cover up them holes!

      There it is... off to APR


      PSA: you do not need an m8 triple square with our hpfp, there is no Bango fitting, rather a nipple. I read one writeup that had a triplesquare underneath.

      All you need is:
      Paper towels
      Torx T30
      Flathead
      17mm wrench
      13mm wrench
      Pliers

      Oh and do the trick with pulling the fuse for the fuel pump ... it helps take the pressure off.
