I know several folks that that get unlimited data on their cellphone and use it for home wifi. This is particularly common for those that are single, and live someplace they can only get DSL speeds or worse.

Have you had to verify where you live? I'm seeing stuff about them cracking down but my sister lives like 80 miles away and is on his so I'm sure I'm fine being 2 blocks away.

None of us had to verify where we live but all of us are within a few blocks of each other so that may be why

I tried joining a friend's earlier last year and Spotiify basically required that I use her mailing address. I first used my own and was declined, lol.

Her address was Milpitas but mine was San Jose.

Anybody used it on a 2017+ BRZ? Is it easy to install, or should I make it installed on the dealer service?

(Edit: that thread got more than one page I'm reading it now.. But any knowledge-experience is appreciated.)
@Clutch Dog, @EAGLE5, still using yours? Could the assembly be taller?

Sold the 2015 FRS that had it in turn for a 2017 BRZ PP car


@korhun

id get one again in a heartbeat, simple bolt on affair, kept the airbag and steering wheel controls. Easy to work with and manage and the knee room was impeccable.


I wrote a write up on it and you posted. check that out

Last night I had my second experience with snow in this car.

I remember I've read some people saying this car is not good in the snow. And all my life I've heard people saying, RW cars are not meant to be driven in snow. And driving a sports car in snow? You must be stupid.. Well.. since I had this experience now, I think I have the right to say:

"Bullshit! This car is awesome in snow!"

There is a ramp on the way to my house, and it is even hard to climb on normal weathers. Last night when I came there, I saw three 4x4 jeeps, and two FW sedans were parked. The ramp was full of snow and my car's bumper was barely touching the snow. No salt had been put on the road, and there were some marks on the snow, which gave me the impression that these parked cars tried really hard to climb the ramp. However, none could make half of it.

So I got worried, because, there are dogs on the way to home from that ramp. And a day ago a neighbor was bitten by one of them..

First I tried to climb with "snow" mode. The car could barely climb 1/4 of the ramp. I got upset and try to prepare myself to fight with the dogs.. Then I decided to put car in "sports" mode. Push and hold the traction button and turn off all the assists. Then I tried it again, and climbed the ramp without any problem. The car was not on a straight line, but it managed to do that.

Then I came close to my house and parked:



2 of my neighbors came to me while I was trying to park. Our conversation with one of them:

Him: "Did they opened the road, and put salt?"
Me: "Nope"
Him: "This car is so low, how could you climb that ramp?"
Me: "I don't know, it did."
Him: "So this car is AW drive, good job man."
Me: "Nope, this is RW"
Him: "Wtf??"
Me: "Yea it is."
Him: "I have snow tires and my car is a 4x4. I've made many tries and could not make it. How could this car did it??"

I don't exaggerate, we had this conversation. I'm not a bad driver, however not a very skilled one either. I think Torsen LSD had a great role on this climb.
