Gave mine a good wash and temporarily switched my DRL's back to regular halogen bulbs because I damaged one of my LED's defintley will order more probably from v-leds again but Now my inner headlights are yellow and my HID"s are 6000k, but it makes for an interesting color contrast at night, thats about it lol

Default What did you do to your GS today?

At this very moment my '98 GS4** is getting a whole new front end's worth of u/l control arms, sway links 'n bar bushings, tie rods, ball jnts, caster arm bushings, steering rack bushings and the obvious alignment. All rubber bushings for ride and quiet. I've waited long enuff. The $ of Conti EC DWS tires made me do it. I'll post on the results in suspension, in a week or so....

Default patience is a virtue.... RFTM

As we say in Holland: "read the *****ing manual"

For longer times I could not get the navigation programmed, the buttons flattened... Now I found out it does that when you try to program it when driving.... Sorry... unsafe behaviour...my bad
When at a standstill, it programs perfectly...

Also found out that the buttons on the keyholder actually DO work for the windows and the trunk... push it longer than 2 secs and it does what it promises....


On the ToDo-list..... implement Dension iPod-unit.... waiting on materials...

Timing belt, tensioner bearings and rollers, water pump, drive belt, camshaft seal, crank seal, thermostat, valve cover gaskets, spark plug seals, and a coolant reservoir tank. I'm sure I'm missing a few things too.

I followed BananasGS intructions on how he did his:
http://bananags.grantham-international.com

Scroll down and click on #10 Override foglight switch.
Only change I did was use a 10 gauge wire instead to avoid melting plastic, and the same size wire as shown in his tutorial for the ground wire that connects to that green wire under steering wheel. Very simple.

The only thing I don't like is when my fogs turns off when I turn off the engine on auto. I'm going to move my wire to another fuse location that will allow me to manually turn on/off my fogs anytime, and turns off on its own along with the headlights in auto mode like it always did.

I also disabled my DRL's today; I liked them on, but my fogs are my new DRL's most of the time, and it looks nice with the city lights on too. Next I'll find a way to keep fogs on when hitting the high beams .
