How do I customize what shows up on my dash display?

I used to have a customized dash display that only showed the info I wanted to as I cycled through the options but my ECU was reset. For example when you cycle through and it shows you the date, time, fuel consumption 1 and 2 etc. I know there is a way to remove items you dont want shown so you dont have to cycle through all those things you dont care about but I cant find anything.

For standard display, push and hold in the button in the blink stalk for greater than 5 seconds. This will bring you to program mode, the select the function you want to see in the order you want from the mid and then hit set. If you have the GPS nav screen, another screen will pop up where you can select or de-select the functions you want to see.

That's a very nice looking front bumper.. Who makes it, and what was the cost?

This is the full hamann kit thats on my car. The front bumper piece from hamann is just an extension on the stock bumper that was molded in so it doesnt look like a 2 piece.

Oh very nice I didn't realize it was Hamann, which means even just the lip is out of my budget.

So the moulding in.. Was that just some really good bondo work then? Or did you find a fabricator?

I think there are some knockoff hamann kits out there but as far as the lip goes Im guessing its bondo but Im not sure. Just told the body shop to mould it in.
