Me neither. All that info was copy/pasted directly from Carly's website. As I described, I went to "All Coding", then clicked on the E9X platform, and then the list of categories was populated. ...

I think all of the ones that you would potentially be interested in have been named already. Maybe even the ones you wouldn't be interested in as well.

I've done very little with Carly, but I...

If you haven't already bought a clay bar, I'd look into Nanoskin. So easy, and you have a big vehicle and the DA already.

FWIW, I've only used OC 2.0, but it is as easy as using a wax. The thing that requires attention is the need to level down any "high spots", but they are easy to see, and even if you don't catch it...

Hi, I have Carly, but I didn't use it to register (the option wasn't available at the time). Just FYI, you might want to confirm that you need an alarm system installed to be able to get the honk or...

25nm or bit over 18 ft-lb, and I'm pretty sure it's the same for the oil filter (and spark plugs for me are close to that spec at 17 ft-lb). I recommend the wrench adapter for the oil filter. If...

Hi, is there some promo coupon code that I missed? (Sorry if I did.)

The discounts are certainly not automatically applied, at least not by step 2 of the checkout process.
