Mine got a 2nd birthday full detail this weekend, clay bar, carnuba, new wiper blades---the works. Of course, a chrome Cardinal football emblem was finally attached.

ocveloman, do you use "Sport" mode? It helps alot.

My wife always rolls her eyes at me but yes, everytime I drive I throw it into sport mode. I LOVE it, not much for power but i prefer the higher shift point and seemingly more solid shifts. I drive an F250 with a built motor and transmission so I like to feel the shift to ensure minimal power loss.

Funny, I'm 6'2" and have no issues with viability of the cluster. I had a WK (2005) and that visibility sucked. I love the WK2. Fits the wife well and me well at the touch of the "2" button. Then again, my daily beater is a 95 BMW 325is and the GC feels like a hammock after stuffing my a$$ into that car.

Maybe it's the Arizona sun, but my speedo needle is almost invisable, then the glare of the plastic face makes it even worse. I'm gonna attempt to take a pic of it with my iphone.

Mine too. Actually, both gage pods are unreadable due to STRONG reflections of the steering column when sun is shining directly on the steering column. Porsche avoided that problem by having the plastic (?) lenses coated with antireflection material.

If ever I can figure out how to get those plastic lenses off, they're staying off.

steveinaz, where is 'Javelina'?

GO CARDS!!!!!!!!!
