You have to remove the little window's shade before removing the door panel. I bet that's your hang up.

Your rims aren't OEM. You can see a single 4 sticking out through all of the coating. There should be a ton of markings on the front which are missing. If the powdercoat was thick enough to hide...

I didn't program anything out. My buddy took his car to Auto Couture and they said they could not code out the cornering light. Dunno if that's an LCI thing or what.

A certain Indy made the same mistake on my car as well. The seal was messed up from bouncing around as well. It literally just snaps on.

Cars and Coffee in Ridgewood you say? As long as it's not raining I'm down. I only live 15 minutes away anyway.

Edit: I'll try to get my friend to break out his F430.
