I could learn a thing or two about mechanics and programming from you gurus in regards to this car. Unfortunately, I may be in Texas for spring break during the week that roseng had planned. But there's always another time.

Thanks for the offer, if we ever get a chance to meet up I'll take you up on that. The Macallan 18 is on my short list of "Whiskey's to try". (I actually keep a list)

I watched Skyfall this weekend and noticed they were drinking a lot of Macallan, including Macallan 50 during the "William Tell" scene.

Apparently, most of us here are Scotch lovers. I will definitely have to try Macallan 18 someday.

Thanks. I'm a broker (and former bartender) and every time the stock market crashes I build something to keep myself from drinking every night. The dot bomb crash of 2000 resulted in this bar, a bathroom and a 106" TV screen in the basement. The only time I leave is to go to the garage or bed

Now this post is making me thirsty

So far my favourite Scotch (that I've owned a bottle of) but I am trying something new at least once a month.

No it's not, but I've just added another bottle to my "must try" list.

Back on topic. You guys may want to try ordering a different knob.

I noticed something today when browsing RealOEM. If you look at this diagram, part #8 is a different knob and appears to be the "more correct" knob if you have the CCC CD/DVD system. (Part # 65839119610)

The other diagram which shows the knob as part # 65126923294 is actually the M-Audio system which seems to be different than the CCC based CD drive (note the two buttons just to the right of the knob).

That would be very cool. Let me know if you are coming anywhere near Toronto. I've met a few people from the forum now.

Allentown is not too far at all. I used to drive there every weekend to pull parts out of wrecks to keep my Saab running

If you are flying into Philly and driving there you will pass within a few miles of my bar...I mean house Let me know when you are in town. Your welcome to my bar or I'll come out and meet you.

I think it's the least we could do to buy you a drink after highjacking your thread with our whiskey worshiping

...and nice job Yorgi! I went back into RealOEM trying to find that button with no luck.
