      I'm pretty sure you conveyed your point quite well without that last sentence.

      Instead of everybody trying to one up each other here's some information that isn't specific to anybody....

      If I just needed a commuter to beat it's pretty tough to find a respectable car for $13k. I wonder how long it would take to make up the difference in fuel savings if purchasing a TDI? The TDI...

      You're ridiculous. Who cares if he doesn't agree with you?

      Not sure what you would get for a price out the door but here's 2014 Jetta S Manual listed as $12.9K. The...

      I think a glossy black vinyl on the radio trim, similar to the 215 models, would set it off

      I'm not sure if it's specific to that Kenwood but I believe it is... I'm fairly certain the maestro doesn't overlay an extra interface

      I agree though. Most aftermarket gui's are ugly
    6. Maintain OEM buttons/hvac/etc

      Here's a nice product to help keep all the OEM functions without having to keep OEM radios. You can take it with you when you trade in and just reprogram it for the next vehicle

      sorry I never saw your post. That's the same harness sitting behind our radios. The brown block holds the wires leading to the speakers or the fender audio amp. You can search for an image that...

      Well that $12 ebay harness didn't have the male end I wanted for the factory wire harness. The wiring works but the factory female audio block does not match the male from the ebay set I purchased. ...

      I'm finally home!! Time to put this whole thing to rest.


      Before I install after market speakers I've decided to try the MS-8 running the OEM setup first. Then I'll add my 6.5" sub. Also, I...

      I've read that in harsh climates where temperatures can be quite drastic that it can be better to change oil more frequently. I certainly know that synthetic is better with very cold temperatures.

      10K is very safe. I've read quite a bit on oil myself and as long as it's synthetic it's not as big a deal. If it isn't, then you have to worry about all the different additives the manufacturer...
