If you don't subscribe to XM/Sirius unplugging XM box in the trunk will get rid of XM entry on the radio when pressing "bands" button so you can switch between AM and FM quicker

If you replace the gas cap at the dealership, you will have to replace it again, and again, and again.... :)

So sad, huh?
Speaking of spare tires....were we?
I gave up and bought a spare with a jack kit from Australia.
I feel much better when driving through "those areas" at night now.

When in sport mode all gas then all brake rpm's do not drop quick.....:driving:
Found this out by accident. Testing out the install of the CAI and I passed a guy in a Mercedes while on the brakes, car was down shifting like I had never seen. I think the guy in the other car pooped his pants and then flipped me off.
My fav part of this car so far.

It's OK UnlkeTim, I live in the "Hood": N. Dallas. This is the same place that defrocked Vanilla Ice's street cred when they found out he wasn't really from the real "hood". The only hood in my town is the kind you buy at Prada or The Gap, or wherever the hell high society people who really aren't that high society like to buy clothes that make them feel rich and powerful. Think "Orange County Housewives" only in Dallas. There, the nails are longer, the hair is teased to Jesus, and the drawl is Awe-som-e bayyyybee.

Now who the hell shot J.R.?

She is referring to "race mode". It happens after 5 secs of WOT. It will hold the gear you are in when you let off, not upshifting. Its for road course racing to hold your gear all the way through a corner. I thought I broke something the 1st time I discovered it. I only calmed down after using the search button on this site.

I remember a Chevy Citation (early 80s) doing that too and quiet frequently :D
My friend's mom had an early 80's Citation. That thing was FAST for it's time. We used to beat the hell out of that thing.

My 71 chevelle has so much power the AC compressor is never on... LOL

It doesnt even have one.

But one thing I wondered about the G8 is... In the back glass do we have a vent that blows on it when the rear defroster is on? When looking from outside the car in the back glass it looks like a vent runs around the base of the rear glass... can anyone confirm or deny? I forgot to get out there and turn the rear defroster on today when I saw that and feel if it is blowing or not.
