    DougRaymond, I should have listened to you and not the dealer. In my last post I mentioned I had taken it to the dealer, I was there for another issue and asked them about the fog lights as well. ...

    I think his speedo is displaying kilometers/hr, not mph. 192 kph=119mph. He's definitely going fast, but it doesn't look to me like he's going 100 mph faster than everything else on the road. He's...
