All I can say is HOLY CRAP -- way to go. I think many of the mods people do actually detract from the car's beauty but you have hit a home run.

I'm guessing the insurance claim is already closed since the car is already repaired. It wouldn't be easy to get them to pay now. If it works to your satisfaction, why spend money.

Received "unintended acceleration" settlement check -- anyone else?

I received a check for twenty bucks for the Toyota unintended acceleration settlement. Never owned a Toyota in my life, although obviously Lexus is part of Toyota.

Anyone else get one?

I have an 06; Habious has an 02. I ride in his car a lot and have never noticed a difference in screen resolution, although some NAV features are a bit different.

Good choice! Many carry the Conti Comfort Kit (http://www.tirerack.com/accessories/detail.jsp?ID=38) for times that the spare is not in the trunk.

Well, yeah, there are categories in the manual but I was wondering whether there is something more specific like an item-by-item list of what is on each fuse.

Dude, I watched that video you posted and they HOSED your exterior during the installation. It almost looks like a BMW.

Mister Blister's point is genius. If you cycle the top, the lid will open from the front so it doesn't matter that the latch is stuck. Stop in mid cycle and you'll have access to the frozen latch.

Is there a complete listing of what is on each fuse?

As most probably know, there are fuse boxes scattered throughout the car. Driver's side kick panel, passenger's side kick panel, engine bay, probably more I'm not thinking of.

Does anyone know of...

This does sound like a fuse. If...

Almost never.
A little quicker, a little less smooth.
Yeah, I guess so. It's kinda like turning on SPORT mode.

Given the following limitation, I decided not to do this mod. Too much of a hassle, plus I already worry about the Rube Goldberg nature of the top.

I drive with Habious all the time. He has an 02 and I have an 06. I've never noticed a difference. Not saying there isn't one, just that I haven't noticed one.
