Hehe... Whenever I read about shift-up lights it makes me laugh. We don't have those in the UK, on any car, at all, ever. Makes me wonder why they get fitted to US cars. Is it because a significant percentage of US drivers wouldn't remember to shift up, and would drive around doing 60mph in 2nd gear? -- Grunff
