I see people in awe of the fact the gas cap is located on the passenger side. Some say that they mess up and assume it's on the driver's side. If you actually look in ANY car to the little gas symbol on your dash. The little arrow indicates the side of the gas cap. Just saying

That's a little bit of trivia that a LOT of people never knew.
But it's true.

Because sometimes here in ohio it gets really cold outside and I like to sit in a warm car while the slow pump takes forever to gas up 17 gallons of premium.

Because why should I put the extra wear on my starter if I'm going to drive it again very shortly.

because I love the sound of my exhaust.

because my wife likes to sit in the car and listen to the radio while it games up.

Because I have leather seats and do not build a static charge by crawling out my car.

I live in Ontario Canada where its illeagal to get gas with your car running...so I shut it off for the few minutes it takes to fill it. I dress really warm because after all its winter... my car doesn't really get that cold while I fill it....starters on my cars have lasted 7 to 8 years.,,my wife can turn the key on to listen to the radio...im not going to even comment on your static charge problem.....get cream for it.

What your windows when you open your door. If you open your door the window will go down just a tad. When you close the door the window goes back up. This happens to both the driver door and the passenger door. It is to create a better firmed seal to the molding.

-If your have the RS option, and use the blinkers you will notice the Halo light on which ever way you are using the blinker shuts off. Just like on Audi's or BMW's when they use the blinker their LED strips turn off to use the blinker.

This is an excellent thread with a LOT of documented as well as undocumented info and facts that I didn't know about. Unfortunately, there are way too many unnecessary comments that don't do anything for this thread but to make it longer.

Most of the stuff being posted now are repeats of what has been posted before.

Unfortunately, you're right. Primarily, because a LOT of people don't bother reading all of the posts in a / this thread - it's just like in kindergarten or elementary school - just blurt stuff out without a clue of posted content. As a consequence, the thread (and many others) become "watered down".

It's 50 pages. Even tho it started long before 50 pages, not many have the time to back read that much.
