Re: LED Fog Light Replacement, need confirmation

Yes good question.
May be someone has other LED BULB suggestions to replace stock FOG (plug and play)?
By the way I think to match perfectly HID color we need 5K not 6K.

Re: Fixing a flat tire and replacing TPMS parts.

Into my "old" WK I changed for 3 times all 4 tires (every 50.000km) and never changed any parts of TPMS.
Repaired also one hole, no changing either.

Re: 2012 6 speed auto

I think this TSB will not change the 1-2A(2B during downshift)-3-4-5 into 1-2-3-4-5-6.
Just make the changing smoother and with right rpms.
Am wrong?
