That's correct. I glance at the actual position of the shifter, more than the display in the dash. I did that in the '03 X & IMO, it had a much better display setup.

Update,

As most of you know, I would get a P0442 code from time to time. I finally fixed it(I think). I replaced my gas tank seal for the fuel pump and have not had a cel for this in 8weeks.

Got bored and made this. I didnt weld it as its stainless but its all good. This will give me 3" of length to my wrx/sti specific exhaust to stick the muffler out a tade further than it currently sits. I have not fitted it yet, and im sure I will have to have the muffler hangers adjusted but thats small change.

Now if you made those with one of the gasket ends clocked to match the N/A exhaust orientation, then you'd have something you could market!
It'd give a less complicated solution to the N/A flange orientation and allow all those guys to use WRX cat-backs without relying on a muffler shop to hack the hangers up and extend any pipes.

Could be made easy enough. If I find a local who wants to help me figure this out I will make it for those who need it.

Sorry. I will work on that and get back with you.

Check back later for more updates and more mods. All of the overtime I have been working = more mod money.

Sunroof tint.

With the aid of those who have done this I have decided since our 2010 is done its time to have the 2007 done as well. I freaking love it so far.

Standard pre tint view.



At the tint shop. They are a small business, but for $40 cash, they are good.



Same view at home for comparison

The tint looks great Tuned!!!!

Man, seeing your fantastic ride makes me really want to get a set of Sports tail lights.

That is really the only thing missing to complete the look of my ride.

Your car looks great bro,

Team. Thanks for the kind words. It means a lot.

Steve. No grounding kit for either. Do you have one.
