    Not a Bad idea buddy!
    but keep it mind that we 2 cant do this cos i m not leet in Automobiles so we better find at least 1 pro car owner(platz).

    BTW do u know hw can i make my navigator lcd into VCD LCD , is this possible or not ?

    @psycho_killer:
    that's what I thought... the power is compromised with an auto transmission, but its a more comfortable drive. I have a Suzuki Esteem (Baleno) with auto and have the same feeling on that. But I got my new Lancer with manual and its a joy to drive. Hope you enjoy your new ride!

    @Psycho_killer

    You drive your car on "Park"??. hmm..Anyways the 1st and 2nd gear is for uphill climbs and steep ramps. Enjoy your car!
    Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.

    The electrician you met was right...you need to install a vga card in your lcd and a dvd changer with that then you can play and watch videos on your lcd. And the cost he quoted you for the card is reasonable. And no, you cannot install any Pakistan map in this navigation system.

    And your 'OD' button on the gear lever means 'over drive'...which is basically your car's fourth gear. Keep it on. Turn it off on steep hills on ascent / descent, or for acceleration.

    The 'shift lock' button on your gear console is to move your gear when the car is off. You press that button and then move the gear - else its locked.

    '2' mean your car will be driving in the first 2 gears only.

    'L' means 'LOW gear'...means your car will be driving in 1st gear only.

    'D' means drive.

    Simple as ABC.

    Yeah...you're right...but what you're saying is OD OFF. If you switch off OD, then you lose the highest gear in your car.
