At first, my spring break to-do list was to flush the brake fluid, but it just got a lot longer
I got my safety inspection/diagnostic sheet today and apparently this winter has taken its toll.....

You know I've wondered about this too, my rear speakers sound like **** when my trunk is open, not really any sound just garble, but when I'm in the car with stereo on, they sound fine....any ideas?

I like Schomp better than Murray. I hope you are doing DIY on all. Brake pad sensors are cheap and easy.
I need to do the VANOS seals and VCG soon too, but don't have a garage. Wanna do together?
Transmission fluid diagnostic would be something I would be worried about.

Well since mine were blown they sound better
They look like they are made more durable than the stock HK speaker and they sound perfect, I turned the volume as high as I would listen to it ans it sounded crisp.

Not too much modifying at all. Instead of havin two screws like the HK one does, these have three holes. So all you have to do is get 3 #4 screws and screw them in to the plactic. It looks OEM when done and they fit right in.
Best $ I've spent so far, and I actually enjoy listening to music in my car once again.

Take the deck lid speaker grills off from the speakers. Check the speakers and make sure you can't see through them, mine are so bad the outer foam is gone and you can see under the speaker. Haha.

^ two thumbs up!

Its difficult to compare insurance based on price alone, like I said, I have very high limits incase something catastrophic happens and I am blamed for it...
