I had forgotten about the release in the trunk -- good idea. I've never had both sides unlatched at the same time. Should be interesting but may give access to the latch mechanism so that would be...

The B2530 error indicates a problem with the limit switch on the LH luggage lock front. While it could be a problem with the ECU, it is most likely the switch. Basically, the switch is not telling...

Interesting -- apparently the Conti Extreme Contact DWS is being discontinued in favor of the "06" model. The primary difference is that 06 is an inch and a half narrower.

Awesome improvement. Seems like the one tell-tale giveaway from a older SC is the leather.

Does the seller on eBay routinely sell these? If so, do you have a UserID?

Its shocking the number of times per month I get "nice car!" from some stranger, despite the car being a decade old.

Still love it -- Luxlink helps a lot!
