You don't think it's going to complain if it can't put itself up and down as it wishes?

I can always threaten it with an aftermarket head unit if it starts whining.

Mission: accomplished. Screen stays up all the time, no more waiting for the motor. Easy harness removal from the navigation unit, and the best part is that it's easy to reverse the steps to enable it again. Brown and black wire on the bottom right.

Does it give any improvement in the time it takes for the screen to turn on and be useful?

Big time. Less than 5 seconds including key on. Finally feels like it’s a part of this decade!

Got a screaming good deal on some tires. Pulled off the Geolandars (little rough on the terrible city roads here) and got Michelin CrossClimate2 in stock size - 235/60R18 XL 107V. These are load and speed rated and were picked out specifically for my car with it's size, weight, passengers, and my driving patterns & conditions. My commute is about to triple in distance so it'll be nice to have these on until the winter. Also put my roof rack back on with some Thule bars because it's about to be camping season.

Finally knocked out the transmission fluid flush, just about to hit 90K miles. Took it camping with the kids and dogs, working on the C30, and safely brought home the newest member of our family from the hospital.

Speaking of projects I don’t have time for, how about some S60 seats out of a donor vehicle at the scrap yard for $80 total? They are so supportive. I couldn’t have done it without @ggleavitt so thanks for the guidance.

I'm not sure what I'm more jealous of, your car or your garage.

Actually it's both.

But thank you for keeping us all up to date on your mods. This thread is basically a checklist of things I want to do. Surprisingly I need some seats.

I appreciate the kind words! I wish I could claim the garage as my own; it’s just a space I happen to have access to through my place of work. The hoist is one of the only good perks of the job ;)
