That's a little closer to normal.
2000 to 2500 is just crazy.
Heating up the catalytic converter quicker.

Has anyone figured out a way around this, or am I missing something? I thought this was a common car feature so I don't understand why it isn't there. Same goes with the USB line.
My car has a rounded notch in the center counsole with the USB and AUX in the center counsole.

The console with the fore/aft cupholders has the cutout, the ones with the side-by-side cupholders doesn't.

Here is the other console. You can see the wire notch to the left side of the latch hole.

My favorite things are launch control, the blind spot mirror, and the multi colored leds around the car.. I find myself changing the colors up alot never gets old.

Also tried to impress my girlfriend locking my keys in my trunk.. definitely does not work with my 2012 sel.
