They are exactly the same as the WHEELS (not rims) as the legacy gt of a previous year. You may find them easier and cheaper searching that way. Granted they are silver and would need painted.

Find a wrecked legacy gt. In pa here on craigslist the parts yard has been posting cars. I inquired on wheels. He wanted 300 for the set with tires

Yes premium can get them, sport mods come with them stock. I had them added on my old car

Thanks, I've always heard wheels reffered to as rims. Is that a misnomer or the outer edge of the wheel?

Is anyone having issues with condensation on the inside of their fog lights? My drivers side fog light always has condensation inside of it and I'm not sure what I can do to remove it? Take the bulb out and use a hair dryer to blow hot air inside. Since its getting colder in pa the air is a lot dryer here so I figured using a blow dryer to heat up dry air will dry up any condensation inside after I remove the bulb?

Is there any difference between the 17" wheels on the premium upgrade package and the sport premium models? They look like they have a different offset though I cant imagine that they actually would to any significant degree.

The temperature on my center dash blinks a few times right after startup at 37F and below, or when driving and it hits 37F.

The owner's manual makes no mention of this temperature restriction, and I've never seen this restriction myself when using the mirror heater to defog condensation off my mirrors in above-40-degree temps. Here's the text straight from the owner's manual:

The vehicle is equipped with a rear
window defogger. Some models are also
equipped with an outside mirror defogger
and/or windshield wiper deicer. The defogger
and deicer system is activated only
when the ignition switch is in the “ON”
position.

To activate the defogger and deicer
system, press the control switch that is
located on the climate control panel. The
rear window defogger, outside mirror
defogger and windshield wiper deicer are
activated simultaneously. The indicator
light on the control switch illuminates while
the defogger and deicer system is activated.
To turn them off, press the control switch
again. They also turn off when the ignition
switch is turned to the “ACC” or “LOCK”
position.

The defogger and deicer system will
automatically shut off after approximately
15 minutes. If the rear window and the
outside mirrors have been cleared and the
windshield wiper blades have been deiced
completely before that time, press the
control switch to turn them off. If defrosting,
defogging or deicing is not complete,
you have to press the control switch to
turn them on again.

I think the "you've driven 1 hour" flashing digits is more annoying than the outdoor temp warning. At least the outdoor temp warning is trying to tell you to beware of possible icy conditions on overpasses. That's useful.

But tell me this: Why should I care that the car has been running continuously for 60 minutes? Or 120 minutes? Or 180 minutes? Why do I give a damn about that nugget of information?

The windshield deicer won't turn on above 41F or if the car's average speed has been very low. You can force it on by holding the defrost button for several seconds. It will blink, then stay on and you'll hear a click. This is in the service manual but not the owner's manual.

Whoa cool, didn't know about the over-ride or the blinking temp! It was 34 on my dash yesterday and I didn't even notice it blink.
