Ya i think cheapest plan is 80, then 100, im sure it will be on point with like comcast and verizon but there will be an initial install fee of 3-400
They already announced those prices? What's to install besides a satellite antenna (dish)? What speeds?

They're both Notes. If I only have 1 , it doesn't trigger, only if 2 and they slide towards the middle of the seat. Not on bolsters
I have a Note 9 and if I place it in the passenger seat, the seatbelt chime will go off. So, you're not alone. I'll have to see if the gf's S9+ sets it off too.

How do I cancel the "inspection due" message in the MFD? It doesn't delete it when you do the same procedure to turn off the oil change due message.

has anyone had luck with shortening a leather shifter boot? the bfi boot I installed over a year ago is pretty long. I like the shift knob sitting low and this pushes all the leather down into the shifter assembly. Tonight I tore it all apart again (shouldn't have) but it seems you cannot force the plastic part any higher into the boot. Only other option would be to cut the top (then you have a huge hole which would be worse. I guess the only option is buy another boot or custom sew one?

So, has anyone tried a big turbo, stock intercooler location upgrade with no downpipe? I’m thinking this could pass state emissions on a stock tune, then switch back to a custom tune (EQT :)

Hi all, this certainly qualifies as a stupid question.

How do you take the dust covers off the back of the main headlight unit?

I know you're meant to turn it one way, but try as I might, (both directions) they will not budge.

I've got a AFS Bend lighting error on my 64 mk7. Reading up, most people say to change the bulbs. Being a "easy fix" I thought I'd try swapping the h7 bulbs but I'm stuck at the dust covers.

Any ideas?

See if this helps. We don't have any info about your car specs to know which lights you have but this will probably cover it
