Re: Long extended crank & no start FIXED!!

Looks like I've joined the long crank club. It happened once about 6-9 months ago and I just passed it off as a glitch. In the past couple of days it's done it about 3 times. On the second try it...

Re: All windows tinted

I know what you mean. I just had my front sides done with 3M Colorstable 20% and it has a slight blue hue at certain angles but for the most part it's a perfect match. The tint guy said the level...

Re: iPhone 4 ios5 Pandora streaming on RBZ...

I haven't streamed Pandora yet but was just searching on how to do it. I guess you just plug the iPhone 4 into the console USB and play through the system.
I'll try it tomorrow and see how it works....

Re: DRLs or no DRLs?

... By the way the light switch does not have to be in auto mode. I'm not a big fan of DRLs but I swapped the stock lights out with LED and love the look. I also didn't want to pull the fuse.

Re: How Many Miles Per Fill Up?

I was right in your shoes going back and forth in my mind. My V6 gets high 400s with 70% city driving. It's got about 800 miles at this point. I think all highway that 500 miles is possible.

Re: Is anyone running E-85 Gas in their WK2 V6?

I noticed that too. A co-worker had a WK2 rental with the badge. Mine doesn't have the badge but the gas cap indicates "E85". That's just fine with me.

Re: Durango citadel engine fire

It's not the first engine to catch on fire nor the last but it's pretty damn embarrasing for the Durango's re-debut. It would be nice to know the cause though.

Re: Sport Mode

Not unless you were doing burnouts. The 80% means more power to the rear wheels but as long as they are just turning normally there is no difference in wear.

DRL reflector discoloration

Has anyone noticed some fogging on the top portion of the DRL reflector (kind of a "V" pattern)? If so do you have stock bulbs or LEDs such as the Nova bulbs? I have some with only about 200 miles.
