i wanna drop with adjustable h&r's.. maybe .5" in the back and 1" or 1.5" infront but my car is the family daily driver so wifey thinks dropping it is a waste of money
i'll get there
as for exhaust i'll be looking at UUC TSE3 possibly lite.
we will see what deals come around

Dynavin D99 unit showed up today
wasn't Android model as i thought it was suppose to be but that's another story

i installed it and tested it.. i do like it but not sure if i'm going to keep it yet.. seeing if i have a chance to get the Android model instead
was also hoping it would have played movies off my external hard drive but no such luck




planning to install USB and iPod cables into empty tray shown in pic


you can see i attached bluetooth mic to air vent.. not sure where else to put it as i did not want to take apart the pillars and run it through the roof to sunroof panel area

still need to purchase HVAC relocation kit too

Kenwood DNX9990HD was installed today
took the guy 6 hrs but i do have functioning floor vents
he said main issue was eBay install kit i purchased.. bezel had to be sanded a bit and deck housing fell apart on him
looks excellent.. only gripe i had was he installed the USB and iPod cables into the glove box when i asked to have them installed into the console
will most likely re-run them myself
the screen itself is flawless and plays my external hard drive... 100's of blu-rays and music vids


*edit* having cables re-ran today also forgot to mention bluetooth is up in the roof where OEM phone mic would be i believe... also GPS is in the dash as per normal

unit rebooted a couple times on me randomly one day but has been working fine since... no other problems to report.. so far so good

*edit* just had USB's ran through the console where they were originally and ipod cable fitted in the ash tray

TireRack order showed up... shipping was amazinly fast to me here in Canada.. props tirerack

H&R Touring Cup Kit


going to make my order on bmaparts this week for front control arm set and strut mounts

but now the question is.. how low to go because it is my DD with a carseat and wifey drives it
i just don't want all the front wheel gap.. back isn't too bad.
maybe 1-1.5" in front and .5" in back?
what y'all think

found out when they were aligning my car the rear driver tire had bulges in it because the alignment was so bad originally

gotta order new rears on monday then not sure what's next? maybe replace OEM speakers and work on a sub/amp with custom box
