About 270 miles in.

I got a few accessories post-order which I installed myself. Red footwell illumination was a PITA to install, straight forward but nut/bolts for install of the LEDs themselves were tough access. I removed the glovebox for the passenger side. Also I removed the stereo trim and center vents for access to the harness connection. Not sure it was worth the effort, but sorta cool I guess, if a little gimmicky, lol! Auto dimming mirror w/compass was a breezy 20 minutes to install, quite simple, and it's very nice! Love the red compass. STI Duracon shift knob feels great, perfect size (smaller), ergonomic, slick material... I like it more than I thought I would. Maybe it's in my head but it makes the shift feel a little bit more connected and direct (w/the stock shifter).

Today I debadged because Sandy is taking her grand ol time getting here (now a tree will fall on my car). Was pretty stinkin easy, about 45 minutes with hair dryer, dental floss, and claybar to clean up residue. Worst part was the confused look on my neighbors face. Now I need to do something about that license plate frame, maybe I'll spray it black until I find one I like.

Some people here like pics so here ya go...

Only weird thing with the car (so far) is the rear wiper. Not a big deal, at all, but it has a relay around the steering wheel that clicks on and off in Intermittent mode, similar to the click of the turn signal. Click-sweep-Click... Click-sweep-Click... Apparently it's normal according to NASIOC.
