I can't read the blue font either. 25% of all males are colorblind to some degree. Not your fault.

Is it really someone else's fault?
I never said it was someone else's fault

I can read it.

And if you respond to this , then you can read it too. Just like you could the first post.

Here's another thing you might not know..........if you scroll down to the bottom left hand corner of this page you can change the background color.

Problem solved


Or you guys that can't read it can go get your eyes checked and get glasses.

Just sayin! I've got glasses and I can read it fine.

Ok back on topic.

People that ARE colorblind can't read your remarks. Just because something is good for you doesn't mean it has to be for everyone else.

Yes, I can change backgrounds in a browser but many of us use a dedicated BBS software on a tablet or smartphone that lack that option.

I was polite in acknowledging it was NOT your fault and tried to let you know 25% of us are handicapped. Glasses don't fix that. Sorry. You don't need to be a jerk about it.

Re: Things you might not know about the WK2.........

Seems like your the one being a "jerk" about it. If you can't read it thats not my problem its yours. I only copy and pasted it from another site to be helpful. I didn't chose the colors so stop the name calling and hijacking of my thread.

Wow. "I only copy and pasted it from another site to be helpful." ...and didn't read it, perhaps? I'm not colorblind, even a little, and the blue text is difficult to simply SEE on the dark-gray background. If you were trying to be helpful, you could have changed, and still can change, the font color.

"Seems like your (SIC) the one being a "jerk" about it. If you can't read it thats (SIC) not my problem its (SIC) yours." Ahh, I see--you're trying to be helpful, but it's the reader's problem if you use text colors that are barely visible.

BTW I did NOT try to read your about-invisible blue-text replies to my prior posts.

Hijack your thread? We're simply trying to convince you that your use of blue text color is very difficult to read, but that concept seems beyond you. So long, 2014.

Been a while, how have you been?

Re: Things you might not know about the WK2.........

I had no idea about the window lock turning off the lights on the rear buttons. Tried it out last night and was surprised they did something as simple as this. I know you got it from another source, but one thing that would help is adding the model year these apply to.

I'm ok except for having gotten laid off 3 weeks ago.
How's things for you?

As for the 315"s... I sold the tires and chrome wheels after I got rid of the Srt8. I kinda like having the same size all around now to keep things simple.

That info was not given, probably cuz the thread was started a few years back when the wk2's first came out.

I do know that I can't make my windows go down with the remote on my 2014.

Re: Things you might not know about the WK2.........

Found something else you may not know about.
While gassing up I noticed this sticker on the inside of the gas filler door.........



Sure enough I looked in the back storage compartment and there is a funnel with the rest of the spare tire and jacking stuff.
I can't imagine ever having to use it when you get 500 miles to a tank and a few low fuel warnings.

I would add it to the list in the original post but for some reason your not allowed to edit your own post after a few days it seems.
