    I drive a freeway home everyday that can be fairly empty. I've noticed that adaptive cruise control will let you know if it detects a car in your lane. When a car is detected, then a second vehicle shows up on the adaptive cruise control distance meter. I found that I would start slowing pretty far out from vehicles, even when my distance was sent to minimum. Now I know when to change lanes to avoid the traffic.

    I discovered that a "10" on the wire does not mean AWG 10, it means 10 mm2. So close to AWG 8. Everyone should just pick one system and stick with it.

    Electrical engineer here; AWG means “American Wire Gauge”. So as usual, we Americans are the ones who just haaaavvee to be different. Any wiring that comes from another country probably won’t use AWG. Personally, I wish we’d adopt the metric system

    Yep that's what I figured it was. Also found out that the car does not like it when I plug my cheap OBD2 reader in. Random lights start flickering
