Talking I have a question for you!

Tonight I pulled into the local supermarket and parked alone. When I came out a guy in a RS (Inferno Orange) pulled in next to me. We talked and admired each other's cars (I have a 1LS). I got a good look at his car - it was beautiful - I love the color!

Just wondering - on either side of the back up lights it looks like there are 2 holes (ports) that are capped? What are they for? It's probably a silly question, but I'm a newbie -go easy on me please!

Who needs 'em? Just more unnecessary crap on a car.

Me!

Backing up into a parking space is not all that easy with these cars. I'll probably end up putting a back up camera some day.

You find a way to crap on everything you don't have just to sleep at night, huh? It's a recurring theme in the majority of your posts.

My wife (if I ever let her drive it). Already had to replace the mailbox twice due to her backing over it.

False.

They're optional for 1LT and 1SS as well.

when i traded in my evo for a 2lt, it was the first one with hud. I told the dealership i didnt need hud and that i used my gps for my speed. (closer to the road to see while driving) afterwards the salesperson said as soon as i said that and i took it for a test drive i would be hooked. damn if he wasnt right!!! lol.. i even decided to trade up for having the back up camera. (the 1le package was just icing!)

Backup sensor. The closer you get to a bush, wall or something, the faster it beeps. If you are almost touching, the beep turns into a constant steady high pitched tone like a sound on a heart monitor when the heart stops beating. Very handy if you back into a parking space. This plus a backup camera make a fantastic combination!
