If you roll through the ODO settings you can turn the "ECO" light off. (Page 87)

You can turn the ECO light off. At least my crummy gauges I could.

Thanks guys. DONE!

My first mod (wasnt really one), but this is a good one. I picked up the car last night and drove almost 100miles to come home. The green ECO is hella annoying.

Now, how to stop nav's voice turn by turn instructions? And the right little screen with the lanes and lots of red (-) wrong way display? I couldnt believe a Japanese car's 2014/15's navi is worse than those of 5yrs old BMWs or 10yrs old garmin......

I had the same problem, I dove 1.5 hours to pick up my T4R, driving back in the pouring rain at night, I always kept thinking my turn signal was on down there. Just the ECO light.

Failed!

Sadly..... the first mod is a "failure"

I wanted brighter back-up lights, so I ordered these:
http://www.amazon.com/Cutequeen-Ligh.../dp/B00J7HBRL8

The package they came in:


They are definitely "whiter", but it is NOT "brighter". :-(

Left is the new white LEDs, right is the stock 921:


Left is the stock 921, right (may not even be visible) is the new white LEDs:


Now, I need to hunt for some brighter 921-sized brighter LEDs....

Any recommendations?

Don't waste your time. Get some Rigids and put them in the bumper. Someone just recently did a clean install on a stock bumper.

I will do that once I get my Gobi roof rack, I will probably wire 2 rear facing, roof mounted light to turn on with a switch as well as with "reverse" (probably picking that signal up from the "reverse sense" line).
