I'm considering buying this:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

Has anyone used it before? The reviews are pretty good, but I trust people's word on these forums. I need it because my new iPhone has a "lifeproof" case that uses an annoying headphone adapter to fit into the jack and I just want to wirelessly do this.

Dude let me tell you, that one is ugly huge and expensive, I bought a 50$ one that was made by techmac I believe it's called, used two triple A batteries and gave me a distorted sound, than I went back to Frys electronics exchanged it for one that was 18$ rechargeable, cheaper, smaller (an inch in length), and had more okay time. Just giving you some advice but playing wirelessly on ur car is pretty awwsome

I'm not sure how many years ago I did this, but it works great...

300 break-in miles logged on the new clutch, come on 500! I keep having dreams about driving her like she's supposed to be driven. Yes, I'm a bit obsessed, but not in the creepy way...

I just got in the last of my complete cooling system overhaul parts. I just need distilled water and I'm set.

Now it just needs to warm up!

Cubed/ZHP trim is definitely going into the car at some point, but for now while I improve other areas it is just wrapped in the 3M Dinoc CF. For the more inexpensive alternative I think it looks nice.

It actually looks real good. i'm in favor of cheap easily reversible mods as long as it looks good. i might want to try this. how much is the wrap?
