Sound like your Garmin can act like a Heads up and display the speed if you place it in the right location on the dash.
I might just give that a try.

That was annoying about the splitter cable. Why sell it if it doesn't work? When I posted about that on another site, a couple of people explained the technical side of why it doesn't work.

My Blox Limited Series electric blue shift knob arrived yesterday.
I threw it on this morning before leaving for work.
I wasn't expecting shifting feel to change as much as it did, changing gears is effortless.

Swapped out the plastic ring with a low profile boot retainer that threads on. I don't need a locking nut any more.

Swapped out the low profile boot retainer for a larger silver one. Kinda like this one better.

Painted rear tag area flat black

Was bored so got some masking tape and some flat black paint. Trimmed it off with carbon fiber and black pin stripes.

Forgot my spacers 1"thik on the highway rear of the car stays on rails even with long bumps or when pavement were changed. Highly recommended. Huge difference between stock and spacers

Did you do any driving after the rear sway but before the front tower bar? Wondering how much difference it makes, but would be hard to tell if you put them both on at once.

Im guessing this comment was for me..

Anyways after driving with just the RSB, I felt an immediate change in body-roll significantly reduced. a week later put on the Tanabe tower bar and didn't feel much but did notice steering response improved going into decreasing radius turns.. I'm thinking I should have just not purchased the Tanabe bar, but it does look good in the engine bay. Still need to drive a little more to see... but if your trying to decide which to purchase first... get the Progress RSB!

Cheers

Seems we think alike- I got the same rear sway bar you did, put it in about a week ago and love it. Based on your experience, I'm going to skip the strut tower bar, thanks very much for the info.
