Believe it or not, I was just looking at those from another thread! It looks like SRP may be getting a cut of my next paycheck!

Love it. A cold start shakes the house a bit but I love the growl when it idles, and of course when I step on the gas. Plus, it looks a lot better without the two kitchen sinks underneath the car.

Can you get a side pic from a longer distance? I'm considering these, but would like to see how they look from, say 20 feet away

No gauges with RS? Is this not a feature for the 1LT, only the 2LT?

Nope. No gauges on a 1LT. I actually preferred the tray that was there before I added the GPS.

I kinda envy you, the quad pack looks nice, and has good info, but having a 2SS/RS kinda makes you claustrophobic in the cockpit. Sometimes you just need a nice little space for a garmin, you know?

Any other SS/RS people out there have a special place for their GPS?

Nice job keeping it clean! I'm liking it.

BTW, do those AAC sidemarkers look slightly off color compared to the rest of the car, or is it only that way in the pics?
