    Random question.
    In my Calais V one of the interior lights where the door handle has blown on the drivers side. Has anyone replaced these? Easy to do? Or just get a dealer to get it done?

    my understanding is the dipping mirror is controlled by the same stupid module as the calais seat memory, so i wouldn't expect an easy change over.
    its really annoying the readline has neither of these features.

    So yesterday when I got home , drove into the garage, opened the boot, closed drivers door and got my bag out of the boot and closed it.
    Put my work clothes in the laundry and when I walked back into the garage, the drivers parking light was on, but not on, on the passenger side. So I looked at the back of the car, sure enough only the drivers tail light was on. The car was already locked with passive entry/exit.
    Anyway I got in started it, turned it off, got out, waited for it to lock and it was back to normal.
    Only thing I can think of is maybe the battery is about to go. It's an April 14 build and still the original battery.
    Anyone had this?

    Im not sure if the VF's do this. But i know on my Golf, and other Euro cars if you leave the indicator on, and turn the ignition off it will illuminate the parkers on that side of the car.

    The last 2 corners were left turns with the indicator, I might have bumped it when I got out, but it would have come on when I restarted the car.
    It's the only time I've had this in 4 years of happy motoring.

    I upgraded to triple horns. I did not want to work in the wheel well changing/adding to the existing horn. I added twin horns under the bonnet near the fuse box. The positive wire was connected to an ‘Add a Fuse’ plugged into the horn fuse slot. The negative side of the new horns is earthed onto an existing earth bolt. Works perfectly. The only required modification is having to cut a notch into the fuse box cover to allow for the positive wire.

    Does anyone else feel a glow of probably unwarranted satisfaction when reading reviews of an $85k Camaro & the verdict is that it’s not as good a drive experience as a VF2 SSVR?

    Just changed mine today
    What an improvement
    Money well.spent
    Thanks for the help and advice
    Getting the old mirror off was not fun and the pictures in the instructions didn't help much.
    All done in 15-20 minutes

    From what I’ve read it seems the Chevy SS also gets dimming on the side mirrors too when the headlights come on (like the electrochromatic mirror in our Calais!). Do these mirrors you fitted have that capability or would it be for the drivers side only (ie. left side)?

    Old mate is on crack. Having driven both I'd put the Camaro in a different class - from a driver perspective it's a much better package.
