+1 on why you are using your fogs a lot. Do you live in SanFran?



No light, but it is pretty easy to tell by looking at your stick...

No cooled seats in any G except the convert. Only heated.

WOW...This is really just a sad commentary on how pathetic the fogs are on these cars. I mean if you can't tell just by looking at what the illumination looks like in front of your car, there's definitely a deficiency there!

They are definitely weak....but a few times I got stuck in some thick fog on the way home late, couldn't use high beams, so I turned them on to try to help. When I got home I shut off the car, and every time did not turn off the fogs. Then the next time I drove in the dark...they would come one automatically, IDK how long they are designed to last and they don't look great so it would be nice if there was an indicator.

My sport seats in my 08 are way more adjustable then my 04 seats, and are therefore more comfortable I think. The left leg bolster does seem to get a little annoying at times.
Mine did too, so they replaced the entire steering wheel/column and it still does it.

LOL, I guess I will not bother trying to get it fixed under warranty then.

Little question-

why is the first gen able to install/replace aftermarket head units and the second generation cannot. I understand the A/C unit is built into the head unit making it difficult , but is it not possible to use some sort of harness?

Has anyone gotten their grilles replaced under warranty? I know Plastidip is the craze right now but my handiwork was not the best.
