Great, they put even more crap on the steering wheel.

I love the dash of the S197. It's very American. I'll wait until I see more of it, but the S550 is looking pretty European.

Thanks, Kevin. No, I didn't get a CAI. Brenspeed didn't try to sell me one and I'm not sure of the value of one in a V6. I'll revisit that decision when I've picked some more low-hanging fruit.

One of my favoritest things to do is to pull onto a road slightly faster than the traction control can deal with. A little kick of the rear end, a little...

That's what Brenspeed recommended for my 2013 V6. Since I wouldn't be installing it myself, they said the installation charge wouldn't be a lot more for the whole kit than it would for choice pieces.

Got it! I used two allen wrenches as hooks, and the bottom of the compartment for leverage.

I'll plug the stupid thing into the armrest cubby next time.

How do I get this out of my dash?
