First thing I do on Friday is pop the spare cap...I will be looking for QQX. But...I noticed some higher shifting while driving. I didn't dare switch to "Power Mode" did you have that? what does it do exactly???

WOW...I need to get my owners manual ASAP

Power mode alters the shift points accross the board. At WOT it should redline each gear 5800rpms. Regularly it shifts 5600rpms , If I remeber right. It does hold on to a gear longer on reagular driving too. I have notice my gas milage to drop a little when left on. I also have a lead foot, I loved to make the Corsa sound come alive, MHAAAAA.

Anyways, what'* your current onbard milage say? what about avg. speed too?

Another test for Autobaun is bring it above 116mph, non autobaun'* are limited.

I will check the tires and the speedo..but if I remember correctly the speedo goes up to 140mph or 225 kph in my terms...

And I like the idea of the Power mode, I want to make this thing fly

Taylor, once I get the car, I will try to learn who to use that new fangled DIC, geez, lots to figure out there. Then I will have an idea about the average mileage, as for the mechanical mods, I'm gonna sit pretty on that until I get some bills sorted out. But the first thing that I have to do is dark tints.

Don't want no one looking in on my leathers

How much is that in USD. That car sounds like it just KICKS ***. Is the suspension pretty stiff? I've heard that the autobahn ones have no govener... Is this true? That gear ratio is to die for..
