    TuneIn: I have Questions

    Having used TuneIn for a few weeks I have few questions based on my experience thus far. Let’s not debate cell vs satellite vs XM vs CarPlay. Lots of discussion on that elsewhere. So with TuneIn a few Q’s: 1. Is the default app experience the paid premium experience (commercial free)? I don’t...

WA state requires these dumb front plates and the OEM mount was installed by the SC before I had a chance to explore alternative. I just received my new plates (6 weeks from when I took delivery).

    Folding Side Mirrors for Garage Entry

    My single bay garage entry might be a bit tight side-to-side for the R1S. 89 inches wide. Wondering if it's possible to manually fold the side mirrors before driving into the garage.
