Yessir. It's a funky bent piece of metal that will drag on the rotor and vibrate against itself and make a chirping noise.

Are you sure you got that number is correct? Because that goes to a 2000 VW Beetle...

Also, no, ignore the non-sport/sport thing. If you want to be that low, you want exactly what I recommended you.

White instrument lighting on a black background looks really nice actually.

My phone auto white balanced the color, and really makes me want to change the instrumentation coloring from green to white now.

Also, finally wired up the batteries to my mechanic laptop. 20Ah laptop.



Currently the stock battery electronics are trying to figure out how big the new cells are, so the charge level is just remaining at 98% and the voltage of the battery is going up .01 volt every minute.
