    Man I kind of liked that fake wood nonsense. Looking good though, if you put as much work into this as the CAHatch I'm sure it'll turn out awesome.

    Aww, all that for nothing Did you try and reset the ecu by unplugging the battery for a bit?
    Might as well just go for a new one in my opinion lol.
