Seriously.

Appliances, TV energy labels, mattresses, etc all have tags you can remove.

Why not just have tags that are easily removable like the one that hangs from the glovebox on new cars?

I don't know if drivers in the States suffer much from "new" car syndrome, where the owner goes to great lengths to keep every trace of protection and stupid stuff that normally is removed via the PDI on the car. I've seen this taken to the extreme on my travels in China and South Korea, where I was seeing tiny foam blocks stuck to the side of cars.. Cars that were clearly a few years old!! Having flappy warning signs in the car will be so frustrating!!

I actually had an Impreza wagon a few years ago that I bought specifically to rallyX in, but the timing of it never really worked out. Events I had signed up for got delayed due to flooding, or whatever other reason, and I never got to. I do have my old integra though..

Do you have to wear gloves when playing with the knob?

Edit:

Do you mean when it's hot outside or am I getting whooshed with a joke? lol.

In case you meant when it's hot out.. Yeah, today it was 92 degrees F when I left to go grab lunch. I forgot last night to put the velvet pouch over the knob when I parked. So it was pretty blazing hot until the AC cooled down the interior enough, so I just used the velvet pouch to cover it for shifting until it cooled enough.

But to be fair, the steering wheel I brought back from Japan last year also gets pretty dang hot. :\

Took mine to Massachusetts to pick up a set of wheels for the project 944 I got last week. Great driving car and reminds me very much of the BRZ in the way it goes about its business.

Muffer Delete

Finally started some mods on my car. After a year of having it bone stock. I made a video. not trying to sell anyone on my youtube channel. Simply excited to share how much fun I had putting a muffler delete on the car. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I have.
