The pictures are self-explanatory, if you have any questions just ask. I got all the parts from eBay for a bit under $12.

I am still disappointed in the range even after a new battery. I have to be within 3 to 4 car lengths with absolutely no obstacles for the remote to work. Does everybody have this range with their remote or just me?

Well, you're right, I felt kind of goofy going around with the remote on my chin but it does add more range.

Now that does sound strange but then again giving some girl access to my car is more strange.

The white stuff is at least half of the reason I bought my W8 in the first place! Sure, the car's fun on dry pavement, but it's real purpose in life is to shred the snow and ice in a Midwestern winter while keeping me warm, dry and comfortable.
