Intravee II adaptor with timeout mod. rear AC Spoiler. Hartge 19" rims.

so far have done the VCG. rear vapor barriers. swapped out rear diff for a 2.81 instead of 3.15 (this is a long range cruiser). replaced 2 expansion tanks, NPG+ coolant, replaced fan shroud, replaced headlight adjusters, vinyl wrapped interior in vertical brushed aluminum. auto-tragic level in black carbon fiber. Memphis Audio Sub installed where the old "sub" was and its amp installed on its side next to the spare tire.

plans: entire front suspension rebuild to figure out why the car does not sit Dinan ride height all around. front brake pads and rotors at some point. flappy paddle shift levers (if i do not 6 speed swap it first). M5 tire pressure monitor retrofit (have all the pieces, just not the time right now). trailer hitch and backup camera. remapping the rear tail lights, i want to disable the lower turn signals. i do not believe in red turn signals. i have he uppers yellow and do not want the lowers blinking red when turning without the brakes on. does anybody know if this is even possible?

Jayster & Reefin -

It is possible to flash just the top portion of the turn signals from what I have been told. I have a GT1 I am plugging into tomorrow. I was told when accessing the LCM there is a EURO and US option. The vehicle is obviously defaulted to the US selection now, when selecting the EURO option the tail light is to flash just the yellow portion of the tail light presently in Reffin's 540iT.

I am not sure how true any of this may be as I energized and wired my rear fog light circuit through the LCM years ago and have done nothing to change to the EURO setting for the tail lights. When I know for sure either way I will repost.

If anyone knows of some good non celis Euro Wagon tail lights with the Yellow Indicators, not clear with Yellow bulbs, shoot me a message.
