Unless anyone can point me to a coder in the Washington DC area? I'll search of course, but if you know of any, I'd live to know. Thanks again.

Please tell me how I can code my 2014 to show these in the HUD. Is it something that I can do myself or must I take my car to dealer? What's involved?

Thank you.

Valve Noise

What do you mean by valve noise? Mine seems loud out the pipes in back when I start it but gets quiet after 5 minutes or so. Is this normal?

Does anyone have any updates on this? I heard that the $1500 is gone, nothing replaced it and finance rates stayed exactly the same as December. Can any dealer or anyone please update?
