Yea. Ordered the first one on Christmas Eve. Got the tracking info and they said it will arrive on Jan 7th. Couldn't wait, so I bought one from the dealer. Then the damn thing I ordered arrived the next day. So, I'm stuck with this extra just chillin in my garage.

Price change
Expansion tank + used water pump w/metal impellar: $70.00

The short of the long is that my car got broken into. They jacked up the roof, both right side windows, and ripped the screen out for the head unit. All told, over $6k in damage not including stereo. I'm beginning to wonder why criminals are so stupid. They cut the ribbon lead to it and will never be able to use the screen.... Oh well.

Yeah, that was another $1k plus install. The car is almost done at the body shop. Then its off to the stereo shop. I'm thinking about converting to a double din Pioneer unit, but I'm not sure if that's going to be worth the hassle.

Sup guys! sorry about your loss frobie, and yes I agree do double din, you guys saw mine along time ago.

I'm thinking of lowering the car, but at the same time I don't want to. It's perfect the way it is it's just the front looks like a 4x4.
