I went with a combo -- Dynavin head, BSW drivers and sub, Hertz tweeters and amps. I've been happy thus far, though I may double back and improve on the sub. Fitment is what BSW are selling in my...

And keep in mind these cars are known to be good for at least double that mileage, which is why they are so sought after. Of course, you have to keep up your prior owner's tradition of care.

Good outcome. Have a good weekend on that one!!

I wonder if the slave is what's ruining these pumps, the same way a leaky air line will ruin air ride pumps and modules.

Conkelid, did you ever figure this out? In particular, for the widescreen display, is there any difference between the P/N ending in 410 and the one ending in 411? Please let me know.

Cheers,...
