Yup, I'm pleasantly surprised. Got my touchscreen climate control panel in too!

For those of you who only have one light that comes on, is that because you only have one physical light set in one side, or do you have both but only one works? I have both LEDs, but only the left side works and after coding I'm at a loss as to why.

For those of you who have them, when you press the brakes does the inner set of brake lights on the trunk still come on? With my LCI lights, when I press the brakes the inner brake lights don't come on but all the rest do. No errors were displayed or anything. Normally when I press the brakes with the fog lights off, the inner and outer lights come on. Wondering if that is intended with the rear fogs or not. I also thought that maybe because the inner brake lights don't come on with pre-LCI, but since the inner and outers work with the fog lights off I wasn't sure.

Pic is from when I wired them up wrong at first during install so I know they are both there.
