    lol, how true that is. I guess people who like to tinker will tinker with anything, be it cars, computers, electronics, whatever. Though I think some people tend to forget that the majority of the population does not care for it so it wouldn't affect them either way.

    Now Volvo's only floating the idea to see what kind of reaction it produces, but in a few years they'll invoke the DMCA.

    Don't be a hater. We got enough on this board lately.

    STi's are sure fun to drive.

    You should have checked out my car that night you stopped at Cliffs to pick up the NTSC screen.

    As I mentioned to Cliff, I was in a bit of a rush that night. But from what I did see, it looked pretty sweet. I'll definitely show you mine once I finally get it together.

    Sounds good, we should organize a Long Island / Tri State meet when it gets warmer out.

    that's quite simple. get the haynes/chilton's manual for the car, get the pinout for the electrical, and pull the fuse for the check engine light.

    i already did that for the door ajar light on my camry. (stupid accident now keeps door ajar light on all the time)
