Re: traction/DSC warning light after running down to 2 miles range

Good to know. BTW it has absolutely nothing to do with the lowering springs, because the right height in this car is not related to the stability control in any way. But at least the dealer was fair enough to not charge you for a simple reset of the steering angle sensor. It is usually done bu turni...

Re: Improve aerodynamics for better mpK

Front grill is functional-BEV and REX have the low temp coolant system radiator there and the condenser for the AC. It is really small and the exiting air is ducted to exit under the car, so not much of a drag there. There are actually models with shutters on the lower grill.
