I was really hoping to get rid of the throttle-lag caused by the recent change from cable to drive-by-wire throttle systems that everyone seems to be going to. Unfortunately, I didn't notice a significant change in that department, but gas mileage seems to have improved by 1-2 mpg.
The towing setting seems to be the best bang for the buck as far as fuel consumption vs. power. I've tried all 3 settings - Economy is lame (though better than stock), Towing is good (noticable power increase and short shift times), and I didn't notice a significant change between the performance and towing settings (aside from the extra $0.20/gal out of my pocket for having to use 91 octane with the performance setting).
I'm usually somewhat leary about installing my own accessories, but this was really easy. The directions are clear and I had everything in within 30 minutes of opening the box. I didn't use the adhesives that came with it (or any at all for that matter) and the mounting piece that it comes with doesn't seem to have moved at all in the 3 weeks I've had it.
I do wish Edge would find a solution to the throttle lag issue. Also, I didn't see an option for color choices for the molding. I got a black mold though my dash is grey. Not a huge deal, but still sort of sticks out (however it's certainly better than nothing).
