However, I only drive it about 6K miles per year and physical examination of the chain burnish marks indicates minimal wear.

Since the chain guides are polymer based I believe that oil temp may play an important role in the life of this critical component. Just a hypothesis, and why I make my used car buys at the top end of about 80K miles (typically one or two owner vehicles). Many of the chain guide disasters that I have read about seem to be somewhere in the 170K miles or so zone :dunno:

when u say physical examination, how did u check them?

I opened the oil filler cap on the 4.4i engine and looked at the faces of the chains.

Mike

surely you should be checking the plastic guides themselves and not the chain?

did you use a special camera to look in there?

Is there any difference between Resler vs Modlight usb ibus adapters?

To the best of my knowledge, Resler makes them for everyone. Svet at ModLight has worked with Rolf for years

I had no idea one could keep the car data such as range etc. I would love to get one of these but none of the stereo stores around me sells them, and I don't have the time to install myself.

Any ideas on how to find someone who can install? I am in San Diego. 2001 3.0 w/widescreen.

I just installed the latest version of the iBus App 2.1.1 and it appears to be running fine.

They have added coding for LED tail lights (not sure what that will do but I have LEDs so I activated it)

Here is the link to the iBus hardware interface

Resler IBUS Interface

The "license" to open up the features is sold separately

The latest version of the App is here

Enjoy,

Would having the iBus interface make the modLights2 obsolete?

Yes and no. I think the head unit coding options will cover most of what the ModLight2 did but maybe not everything. I would look at the options you have in your android head unit and compare them with the ModLight2 options. I already removed my ModLight2 in anticipation of my Avin Avant 3 coming soon.

The Official Anybrand Android Radio setup thread.
 
I see that the iBus has mirror folding which is what I really wanted but couldn't see the depht of the type of folding options it offers on the iBus.

For example modlight2 allows me to remotely fold them only if I press the button 2x, as I don't want them to constantly open and close when I lock and unlock.

Edit:
I don't have neither just seeing what my options are before I order everything at once.
