I am soo bummed, I am only Stage 1 right now but I was literally going to order a HPFP and Intake this week and go Stage 1+. I am really nervous about even doing these mods at this point. I may just focus on suspension for now and wait to see how everyone's clutches hold up. I am probably gonna do KW coilovers, HPA Competition Haldex Controller and the HPA trans mount insert.

I learned there is a light sensor in the left dial (RPM's). When light is hitting it, it brightens up the numbers on the RPM and the Speedo. Where there is no light, there it turns off. Sorta annoying when I'm in the underground garage and I can't see the numbers. You can try it yourself by going somewhere dark and shining a flashlight on the left side. You'll see the numbers light up. Makes me wonder why they couldn't have just used that sensor for the auto-light feature...
Any iDevice will plug into the cord in the center armrest console and work with your radio automatically. You just choose MDI as your source. (Under the "media" button)
So I let some air out of all three of those and now that I reset the light it hasn't come on again, so I'm assuming the issue was that three of the four were running too high.
But without the light, I probably wouldn't have checked the other three... so... it's a good thing, right???
My KESSY scared the crap out of me. I was wearing gym shorts with no pockets. I decided to leave my keys in my gym bag. Closed the trunk. BEEP. It locked. WHAT? Key inside trunk! nooooooo. Doors locked....FORTUNATELY the thing unlocked as easily as it locked, even with the key inside the hatch.
You don't have to READ said stupid and redundant threads...
I feel a bit slow...but it took me about 1000 miles to realize that this car shifts pretty smoothly at around 2500-3000 rpm....and not above. I feel like I have to really massage/ride the clutch to get it to shift smoothly above or below that level. Thoughts?
My super leet mods, cosmetic/touch/feel only for negligible Vortex cred: HPA dogbone mount, Dieselgeek short-shifter, aluminum look glovebox handle, R logo seat handle inserts, OEM LED tail lights, smoked side markers, and LED interior lighting.
