    So the new wheel came in today. Tried to just plug the new wheel in and nothing. Buttons wouldn't light up, no radio controls would work. Looked at the pins and they were all in different locations. Tried to swap the heated wheel switch with the 1-6 preset switch but the stsv wheel (thanks to the metal trim) takes smaller buttons. So to sum it up the only thing the $40 wheel was good for was new back lights for my switches and knowledge.

    You forgot one other thing you got for $40- something to hold on to while driving. Lol

    I'll keep it around for one of the kids to help daddy drive from the back seat.

    The "windows up with remote" feature is pretty cool though - did that at a car show this weekend and *might* have spooked one or two spectators. Lol.

    Got the car back from being detailed. The guy gave me a good price at first on the wheels getting redone then tried jacking the price up once he had the car so I'll get them refinshed in the spring somewhere. Interior is near mint now. A major tune-up coming soon, need to complete some house projects, then I can focus on the car. I did get the door seal and both front door interior handles changed out.

    Completed the lockpick install. Found a used unit here on the forum. Works great, installed the bypass switch where the fwd ashtray cigarette lighter was located. When I started, the pop-up feature of the outlet was not working and the ashtray didn't come out smoothly. A little lube and ingenious repair got it as good as new. Not really going to use the lockpick for movies but got it for the phone usage and for the passenger to edit nav info on the move. Off all week so I'm hoping to get the tune up finally going...
    Question, bought a oil kit that came with a solid coupler for the supercharger. I just read that in order to remove the snout the supercharger has to be loosened and lifted a bit too get to some of the bolts. I'll have the belt and intake off anyways to do other maintenance. Do you think it's worth the extra effort to replace? Or should I just use the siphoning tube and syringe to replace the oil? 184k with no maintenance history on the blower. Please let me know if there is a benefit of replacing the coupler. No current irregular noise, just the sweet whine of compression.
