I don't like the DK. Orange or white accent the body best!

One of the "little things" I noticed this morning.... backing out of my driveway, looking in my drivers side mirror to navigate by the little picket fence we have (that goes from our driveway to the front steps), I noticed a glimpse of the rear tail light protruding to the side. Why is this significant? I now can judge my corners better when backing.

I can't think of another car that I've had (without corner sensors) that I could know where the corner/rear of the car is by looking out a side mirror.

Just make sure Autozone gives you the good ones with the 3M tape so they stick better.

About your car. We noticed something the other day(we haven't had TOPs long). TOP must be more expensive than other colors. We noticed they did a ghetto paint job under the hood. Every other Color we checked has a fully painted engine bay. No matter to me. My first choice would still be the TOP.

That guy lost creds with me when he said he didn't know if it was a CVT or regular auto when he got in it.

Aren't the CVTs also unpainted? The CVT has sound deadening material though under the hood (which I'm going to order) the 5MT doesn't.

I can see what he meant. It does try to fake gears on me sometimes. I laugh and just tell the car "you aren't fooling anyone"

ok maybe it is fooling someone...the dumbass that tests cars for a living
