What car are you installing it on?

Not that it matters...

Not to burst your bubble, but did you google 'G-Force Chip Review" before you bought it?

It doesn't reprogram anything. It it a resistor that goes on a temp sensor, and passes (false) information to the ECU that the outside temp is colder than it actually is.

Don't do it. It doesn't work and will likely void your warranty.

Has anyone had problems with their cvt tranny being overly loud sounding at times like a faint winding noise? And does anyone else's a/c not stay constantly cold?

I hear the cvt at low speeds and in reverse, but not loud, a faint winding noise is normal.
I've never had the AC full on, I have the sport limited with temperature control so I just use that.

The engine is designed to prioritize power delivery over A/C operation when under heavy load, so the A/C feeling less cold when going up a hill on the highway is normal.

Picked up the car last night; only driven it 10 miles or so but so far so good. Glad to have my car back! The '11 base Legacy CVT I had as a loaner was ok -- more power, but the suspension felt loose and floaty. MPGs were a bit worse too on my short city commute.

Anyone have a galaxy s3, and will it consistently connect to your car? My old s2 did every time and automatically, my new phone won't, and i have to actually go through the re pairing process every 3rd time and will not auto connect

Nice car! Here's mine with tint and grill

This time around I'm really into the no chrome look. Cars with chrome all over them just look cheezy now.

Many will say, I should have gone darker. ...but, my State is 35% all around and is still too new to them, cops still pulling over to check people. So, I wanted no reason to give "just cause" and went with 50% 3M Color Stable all around on my Limited Sport.



Plus, I am what most of you would consider old at 41 years young, and wanted to be able to see out at night. lol

Next, I think she needs the rear spoiler...

Here are a couple. The haze on the camera is from taking it outside. Here in VA, we hover around 80% humidity all the time! It may say 78 on the outdoor thermometer but it feels like 90.

Figured it out, had to redo the voice setup. Manually adding from the menu is just an additional audio device, through the normal phone setup you can actually add up to 5 phones if anyone is wondering
