The VIC is gay. Take it out and put something useful in there like a trans temp gauge and some aux switches or a power steering temp gauge. Who the hell needs to be reminded to change their oil or inspect their vehicle regularly anyway?

For me, I like the VIC because it's really nifty. Sure it's basically useless, but it's an awesome nostalgic relic from the 90s.

As for me, I test drove and made a payment on the Orvis today. Good stuff.

I like my VIC. The low washer fluid warning and the oil change reminders are a nice convenience.

Out of curiosity, how is it nostalgic for you? You were 4 when they stopped making ZJs. I'm not trying to be a jerk, I just want to know if your memory is really that good. I can remember bits, "clips" or "excerpts" if you will, back to when I was 2, like my brother being born or going out and about with my grandmother who passed when I was almost 3 (these may actually date back to when I was younger than 2 as she suffered pretty badly in her last year), but the memories are few and far between. I remember getting locked into the back seat of my mom's 86 Taurus and looking at the lock with no way to pull it out from where I was strapped in. That's the only thing I can remember with cars from when I was about that age. That was back in 89 or 90. I don't really have any defined memories until I started kindergarten. After that, I remember quite a bit.

On topic, in the last 2 weeks I've put almost 1500 miles on it. It's taking some getting used to daily driving it again, especially for my wallet. Also, so far in full time, I haven't had any issues with my 242 and Aussie in the snow. It's incredibly predictable and does what I tell it to do. 2WD in the snow with the Aussie is fun.

I'm currently sitting in a snow filled, empty parking lot... It's so tempting. I can't leave donut tracks though in the plant parking lot. I have to "keep it professional." Lol

Every time I turn left my Vic tells me my passenger door is opening and closing rapidly. Looks like a chicken flapping a wing! The excessive beeping is annoying. It only does it in the dark when my lights are on.

I'm going for the iron man ones. Hopefully next week

When I worked for Oreilly's here in town, I got told the same thing when we got snow a couple years ago. I told my manager the next morning that I was just doing some advertising to planes that flew over with all the O's in the parking lot

Didn't work out yesterday. The buyer for the cj backed out yesterday morning. But got another one lined out and we'll be heading towards the colony after lunch to hopefully pick up that zj
