What did you modify, the back of the knob to align correctly or the face to move to correct spot?

The mazda ones will fit, too. They are the same knob. haha.

Anyways, it won't light like i have it in my pics unless you have the HVAC bezel modified like mine. Evne then it wouldn't be a direct light, so maybe slightly less bright.

You just have to align the knob and push hard. It fits perfectly due to how the start pattern for the knobs are. Nothing has to be modified!

I can add more pics tonight. I can add some with a silver SVT bezel like on yours, Jordan so you can see how the silber/black looks on the SVT panel.

Do the fast paces are FAST or HARD levels, then take a cool-down minute. It'll kick your ass and you'll burn 3x more than what the machine tells you because you've done weights BEFORE any type of cardio.

You can switch it up...hit up a bike the next day, go on the rowing machine the next, etc. Go for a swim one day instead for 20 min.

You HAVE to do some kind of cardio to lose the weight. Interval training is where it's at, not where those retards doing 90 min on a 4mph pace on the treadmill are doing.

If you get used to something, step it up. The only way your body inproves is by shocking it with something it's not used to. Be it weights, intensity, etc.
Too lazy to go searching to see if this was covered, but in addition to weights, and cardio, you gotta start counting calories and getting your macronutrients right (percentages of fat, protein, and carbs).

It doesn't matter how much you lift, if you aren't getting enough calories and protein, you won't put on any muscle. It's also pretty hard to build muscle and cut fat at the same time. You're much better off doing one or the other, although newbies can sometimes do both for a little while, especially since some of their gains come from improved CNS efficiency.
