    Ok cause I'm having trouble prying the silver trim from the AC and it's a pain in the ass. Just curious how did you cut them before prying it

    ya you just have to be careful that you dont drill a hole through the orange film. But just curious why isnt the 2012 climate controls plug and play cause i have heard mixed reviews saying they can but with an exception to the blue and red temperature knobs? what happens to those?

    Because it uses a different small plug. You need to cut your stock plug and add the new one so the it can be plugged in

    question...

    are the 11 LED's used for the background include the P R D N L1234 Lettering as well? OR do i need more LED's for those? Cause i want to make them cool white when they arent in use but when is use still have the original colors.

    Yes sir, and thank you. Haha XRU seems alittle dead nowadays, it's alittle sad actually. I remember I was one of first people to join that site too. This site looks great, and is very informative. I might just stick around for a while. :thumbsup:
