I picked up a set of 18" 400M wheels and tires with tmps for $900. It changed the way the car looks to the way the car handles

I installed the comfort access retro last night and wow it was a pain in the ass lol.
I knew it was going to be a lot harder than the install video. Everything was a lot harder to take apart, broke a few tabs, had to rewire the drivers door, and had to play with the dip switch setting. The only thing that went really easily was running the antenna through the vent in the trunk

It was a good learning experience and I am loving the CA.

Glad the CA is working. That is not a job I would have tackled...so props. Like the look with the new wheels.

When you put the wheels on was it just a matter of resetting the tpms from the head unit to get the system to recognize the new sensors?

Thanks and yeah my hands hurt today from the CA install.

When I first started to drive a got a warning about the traction control being messed up and the tmps needing to be reset.

After a couple of blocks the warning when out about the traction control and yes it was a simple reset from the head unit to get the sensors working with my car. I was a little worried but everything worked out with the wheels.

Thanks I am liking the look and the CA a lot!

Got to work today and noticed a screw in my new tire but it was not leaking.

I have to go back and turn off the chime for leaving your keys in the car with the CA. For some reason it will chime when I first get into the car.

I had all of the other chimes codded to off so having this new one is annoying.

Next will be some coils

Finally got all my parts for this. I don’t think I will need the small wire harness and a couple of the single wires.

My car has been at the dealer for the last week and a half. I hope to get it back this coming week.

I have to replace the headlights first because I sold them and then I need to find the time to do the steering wheel.

Why did you sell/replace headlights after the work you did on it in 2017?
