Today I will clean up the inside and maybe get a car wash because she really really needs it. Then maybe I'll do a small photoshoot.

Laced up a two tone wheelskins cover from BavAuto into my soon to be installed sports steering wheel. Reassembled all the backplate components and wiring. Just waiting for new upper control panel insert to arrive, bolt Its down with the cf lower cover, then it's into the car with airbag. Woot. All I need is seat upgrade to have fully emulated or surpassed official sports package status. :thumbsup

Tomorrow - the cooling system refresh experience with no ref whatsoever to Mangopage. I prefer official sources of info vs amateur, lol.

Im curious to the reception of frosted trim, I'd rather not get flamed afterward. Rofl
You should paint your door handles man, it really looks off.

Also, frosted trim sounds to be a bad idea. You know how much cleaning you will need to do if you want to keep it in top condition? If the whole car was colored in frost white or something, it would look better but on our metallic color cars, it will just look silly. Just my opinion though

You have rear fog lamps in Mexico? Was that a standard thing or did you retrofit it?

Had mine scanned by another Fanatic because of gauges crashing on me last week. Found a fault logged in the DSC module but it was only a timeout fault because of a communication failure with CAN. There was no indication of what caused the fault with CAN. Interestingly enough the CAN didn't log any errors...presumably because it was in the process of recovering itself.

Mine did this when I was cruising at 120mph. Freaked me out!

I pulled over, pulled the cluster out on the side of the road, unplugged it and replugged it back in, and it reset.

Luck...
