Yeah you can wire the mirrors to do that, anything is possible ;-) That would be pretty simple to do. I like the folding on door lock myself, but the fold in park is nice too.

I had assumed for a long time that all paints were clear coat since the 80s. Long ago though I took an auto damage appraisal training course. I never went into that line of work, but I learned...

99% of the time a vibration is wheel balance. Those stick on weights fall off so easy. The bushings might be an issue, but it is usually ok for them to tear a bit before it is a problem. Any loose...

I should have been more clear...you can use the Windom switch, there is just no place to mount it in a LHD ES, so you would have to come up with something custom, like I did mounting the LS430 switch...

I'll be honest, I don't have time to do any more details on this. I would definitely help if you have any questions. I could post maybe a better picture of the circuit diagram. The thing is that...

I live in the great salted New England and my 2001 ES has lived its whole life outside of Boston. I drive it year round. As a sort of re-commitment to keep driving my ES I decided this spring I'll...

That is normal, the trans upshifts at higher speed when cold. It is part of a warmup or emissions strategy maybe. If you search here it is described, but IIRC it is like 2-3 shift at 35, 3-4 shift at...

I think the ES is considered 6.5" in all doors, because from an aftermarket audio standpoint you can mount a 6.5" there. In actuality the front door speakers are larger than the rears. The fronts...

FYI if the knob light is out you have a bulb out. The knob is lit by the brown backed bulb closest to it. Just make sure those all are good and it will light up.

There were factory monotone ES300s of this generation too, the red cars were all red. I thought those had a unique look since all the others were two tone.
