I'm a little slow and just dont get it
I think its a running change at the factory, I think my mufflers are different(look and sound), and my dash board is more noticeably plastic(maybe cheaper material)

No no no no, the sunglass case gets crammed in the cd box under your right elbow. It keeps them from flopping around when G's get too great. I keep the chamois behind the driver's seat and a 1 1/2 liter of Mt Dew beind the passenger's seat. They wedge in there pretty good because there is no "leg room" there. Even if the rear passenger was made only of skeleton, they would be uncomfortable. So far, no one has ever been back there, but me and that was to clean my back window. I realized I couldn't breathe and got out, only to realize the thing crammed back there with me, making it such a tight squeeze was a stray french fry. One person plus one french fry will not fit in the back seat. The french fry, all by itself is probably crowded. I never hear them complain tho.

Funny you should say that! I was just thinking about trying to persuade my girl to get back there with some sort of nice outfit on, so I could get a picture She doesn't eat too many french fries.

So you are saying my cup holder has a bottom that comes out?? Is that what you mean when you say false bottom?

Bingo, reach into the the "waist" of the figure 8 shape the two cupholders make. You will feel a little tab. Pull up. It's made of pretty soft rubber.

Mine is totally full of coins now and the false bottom is about to become a false top. Makes it so you can easily fit in the big-honkin' coffees. Even a short coffee scorches my elbow with that tiny little steam-torch hole, as it sits on my mountain of Canadian pennies and fancy quarters.

I like the warning on Jack-In-The-Box coffee.

"WARNING: HOT COFFEE IS HOT"

Kinda makes you feel laughed-at just reading it.

Thank God I am not the lady who scorched the pants off herself and then sued McD's. Incidentally, McDonald's won on the rematch. "POWER TO THE..... well.... CORPORATION!!!" At least they didn't back down.

You guys know about turning the text option on for the Shaker so it will display text from radio stations that broadcast it. Hold the menu button down for a sec or two then the option comes up.

I haven't tried yet, and I'm home alone with my baby boy and no car seat, so I can't test now -- does this TCS thing really make that big of a difference?

My mustang is my dream car, but also the first sports car I've ever owned or even driven. To me, even with the traction control, it seemed like a killer ride. Oh boy though, if you guys are right, and I can get even more power from it, WATCH OUT!!

But on a practical note, and like I said, I have a little guy riding along sometimes, is it wise to turn the TCS of regularly? I mean, is it made to just be used during poor surface conditions (curvy roads, ice, snow, rain, etc.) or all the time? Bottom line - am I making it any less safe to leave it off regularly? If it's just me, I don't care, but the little man is just 13 months old, and I don't want to put him in danger... (he loves acceleration, though. ALREADY!)

The TCS was made to be left on. It does not 'steal' any power, your car will accelerate about the same unless you lose traction. I normally have mine on and it has helped a few times making a turn with some lose sand or similar on the road. If you have it off and know it it makes playing more fun and I don't think you'll lose control on dry, clean asphalt... Many of us with reprogrammed computers and extra power can confuse the computer (like losing traction in 3d) and get into failsafe mode... that's why I turn mine off for playing, even in straight line on the highway... In the rain it's really handy as it cuts the power quicker than I can, straightens up the car and keeps me awake...
