Gotta agree, esp on brutal CA freeways. If you get the Camry stacked up in a multi-car crash, you will be much less sorry than if the Bimmer took it.

If the battery is dead, a jump start may not deliver the required current. Also, with all the electronics onboard, it's a bad idea to jump start, anyway.

Charge overnight at a 6-10 A rate. Report...

I assume you are young and single.

Enjoy the car whilst you can. After you get married and have kids, you'll be driving a Honda minivan.

Good Luck. It has been done, but the programming is not trivial.

I've heard this before that the V8 6-speed was not offered Down Under. Any idea why?

It appears to be the warning chime. It fits into the lower dashboard cover on the driver's side.

No.

You need to have the codes read. In CA, auto parts stores don't read the codes for you. You'll need to take it to your mechanic.
