Put 300 miles on the 300C AWD 5.7. Love the way it drives just stock. Tomorow, putting ina Stage 1 Jet module. I'll let you know what the "seat meter" reads.
Is anyone else loving this car as much as I am? This is the first usa car I've bougth in 15 years (bimmer and audi guy). I'm over the top impressed with what this acr delivers right off the showoom floor.
I'll post again tomorrw morning after I run the car with the chip installed.

Indeed, larrynippon, one year and 20k later I'm lovin' her more every day.

A couple of suggestions when you're ready to drop in your jetchip:

1. Simply pull fuse 11 vice disconnecting the battery during your install - it'll save you a lot of hassle.

Unlike pulling the battery cable, you'll neither risk losing personalized settings & presets, nor have to reset window auto up, steering wheel position sensor, etc., if you'll simply pull fuse 11 whenever you'll be working with the jetchip, or would like to quickly clear the PMC's brain.

You'll find fuse 11 in the forward Power Distribution Center [PDC] - aka fuse box. You'll find the fuse location diagram embossed in the underside of the PDC cover. Same for the rear PDC in the spare tire well in the trunk.

2. While you're in the PDC(s) 'recommend you firmly push down on all fuses, breakers and relays to fully seat them - they come from the factory notoriously loose and have caused many a problem. I expect you to be amazed at how many are not fully seated. A little pre-emptive tweaking will go a long way. ;)

Here ya' go...

Not kidding when they say "tight fit." However, contrary to most of the threads, didn't break any clips, got all covers and attachig hardware back on, no problem.
Initial driving impression...VERY subjective. Since I still haven't really put my foot into it, it's hard to say what the ultimate gain is. However, the car is more "reactive" in that sweet spot cruising mode when you want to go by someone with "authority." The car is more responsive...almost gets there quicker than you expect it too...going faster than you think (this is all good stuff!). The personality becomes more of a european road car as opposed to an American "grunt machine." Shifts are smoother, manual tranny control becomes a much better experience...bottom line is, the chip dcoes good stuff. Not dramatic, but certainly "silkier." I would buy the chip again.

Fuse 11

What else does Fuse 11 control? Should I pull it prior to its first service, or simply tell the shop about it?
