Yeah still stock just had delivery yesterday afternoon so really kind of getting to know it unlike others I kind of wait on the driving but so far I'm really happy with the choice. Reflectors coming off within the next couple weeks but that's an obvious any suggestions??

That's what I did too and had it for about 8 months. So far I enjoy it as is I am thinking at doing some things in the summer, upgrade FMIC, intake and Downpipes but at this point don't know what brand...still looking around. Maybe others who have tune their "is" can guide us? good luck!

Yes, my car does not have the iDrive, and I disabled the the daytime running lights. Use the switches on your turn signal lever. Use the up and down switch on the front of your signal lever to get into the settings area. And then use the button on the end of the lever to set it. It is late now, but I will go through the steps on my car, and then post them tomorrow, if you haven't been able to set the DRL's.

Love the look of the 19's and would have gotten them had the wheel/tire insurance not been 1,600!! Back in 2010 it was $600. Have a good one P.S. Hows the ride smooth enough??

No complaints on the ride, I wouldn't say it's very smooth because of the RFT...I suspect if you put regular tires the ride will be perfect I'm ok though, I like the ride and the RFT overall

The setting follows the remote (so you can have one set up each way). To do it on a 2009:



The manual is your friend.

Hmmmm, maybe there was a change for 2013. My car is a 2011, and the procedure in the above post worked on my car. I just went out and re-checked it.

I have heard that the DRL's cannot be shut off on the Canadian models, but I thought we had the option on US models.
