Both are AWD. The wife's in Red has the 1.5T in it. Mine in black has the 2.0T. Both are peppy but mine is the fastest car I've owned. Came to the forum to seek and provide service information. I've always been a do it yourself kind of person. Hope to chat with you all soon on the forums.

I'm curious - Does one of your cars have HIDs and the other have LED headlights ? If so, are the LEDs significantly better ? From a side view, they both appear to be the same brightness, but I would have expected the LEDs to be whiter. I have noticed that my '18s HID are quite a bit brighter than the kit I had put on my '10 Equinox with projectors.

Thanks for the welcome. Not Navy. Iíve used this username since I was a kid. Itís in reference to a video game I was obcessed with...

Hiding the plates wasnít intentional. My plate is my Ham radio call and itís registered to my PO box because they are so easy to lookup. Wifeís car just doesnít have the front plate yet.

Trust me if anything goes wrong or right Iíll try to make sure itís here.

Both have the HIDs. They are much whiter in person. I will say they are a bit blinding when they reflect off my white garage door in the morning.

Do both cars do that?

I have mine on the digital speedometer and speed limit sign, and it stays on that page unless I change it.

Both do it. They default to the digital speedometer.

Maybe that's why mine never changes
I'll change to a different page and see what happens.

Mine stays on the page I set. I tried the tire pressure page and one of the gas mileage pages and they they do not reset back to the digital speedo when shut off and restart.
The fact that both of your are the same makes me wonder if there was a software change.
What's the manufacture date on both of yours. It's on the driver side door jam.
