Well here are some detailed pictures of newly acquired machine.
It is going to the shop for engine mount bolts repair tomorrow, so hopefully in a few days I will start driving it daily.

BTW there are few switches I don't know what they are for, even user manual does not say anything. You can see them in images, one is on the dash, right under the fan switch, says "BCS". The other two are in the console under the armrest, one has a little picture of the house with an arrow pointing in, and the other says "hatch lock" assuming it is to lock out the remote locking to the hatch (although it locks/unlocks either way). Any ideas?

BCS = Boost Control Solenoid.

I would assume that rocker switch is an override of some sort. :?

Those all appear to be switches someone added. They are not stock. Like Colin said... the BCS is probably somekind of boost controll over ride, the hatch lock probably does just that (though that's not the stock switch) and the other one is probably a garage door opener?
