That looks absolutely beautiful. I recall I had a set of illuminated Door sills on my previous '06 CS. When one side went bad, I was stunned at the replacement cost. Luckily it was under warranty at...

Exactly my thought too. Get yourself a quality AGM battery and a set of triple square bit socket attachments to get under the driver's seat where the battery lives. The auto start/stop feature will...

Valid point but frankly, even a fairly gentle rear end smack will easily result in a $4,000+ repair on these car's. That actually happened to us in a previous 955. We initially agreed to work with...

If it's not broken beyond repair, I would first twist the square lock in the middle of the shifter and see if that releases anything. You have to twist it to install or remove the shifter anyway so...

I should have been clear in my question. My primary goal is to use a bike rack. My secondary desire would be to possibly tow my travel trailer, allowing me to downsize the vehicle fleet by one less...

You need a reverse helix socket to remove the broken security lug nut. I have an old craftsman set I once used many many years ago. Had bought it from Sears. Worked like a charm. Just make sure you...

Congrats! Beautiful exterior color. My GTS is a 2013 in jet black metallic. You'll love the extra little button in your center console that the '13's didn't come with to activate the sport exhaust...

The oil sensor is one of the most frustrating things on the 958. If you open the hood, it takes like 30 miles of driving to reset the oil level reading. My Indy somehow bypasses this by manually...

In a single word... NOPE. The Durametric is a pretty basic scanner/reader tool for the 958 series. It was much more useful on the 955's in terms of activating or coding certain features. I don't...

So far so good. I was weary about the glue holding but it seems to have set exactly the way we positioned it. The real test will be actually taking it out of the garage and letting it bake in the...

I've never heard of staying 10-15% below the max rating but that's not to say it isn't a thing. Usually when towing, the 10-15% reference is in relation to the tongue weight vs. total trailer weight....
