      Just curious, how did you obtain the SKC code to adapt the immo to your car? Good luck with sale!

      FYI you can get a blank to go there if you don't want to look at the airbag light. Just plug in the old single DIN light and tie it up behind the panel. I think the blank was $8 or $9 new when I did...

      I really doubt that VW left much on the table as far as economy... In D you're in 6th gear at 35 mph unless you're flooring it. Driving habits are going to have a much bigger effect than any...
    4. Reliability of modern CVTs? Subaru specifically

      So my better half is in the market for a new, or very lightly used, car. One of the contenders is the Impreza, but it looks like all of their automatics are now CVT. This immediately turned me off,...

      Remote start or aux heater retrofit? Let it warm up before driving or faster once the car is started.

      I've ordered some misc stuff from Jim Ellis. Decent prices and reasonable shipping time. I find myself ordering from genuineaudiparts more often though, they're a bit cheaper (though their shipping...

      Wow dude, you dug up a thread that hasn't had a post in nearly a year... and called someone else a troll?

      If you had to run an RCA to the has unit anyway, why the worry about finding 12v in the hatch? Unless you got a wireless camera... which would likely explain the static.

      Not sure what those others are. 4 volt may be a dimmer wire, if the voltage increases and decreases as you turn the dimmer knob. You wouldn't need that for an aftermarket deck though, the dimmer wire...

      You can get a harness that will plug into the ISO plug and wire the Clarion harness to that, so you don't have to cut the stock connector off. I think the harness you need (off the top of my head) is...

      Remote start is possible, you will have to give up a key that will be wire wrapped and hidden inside the dash to bypass the immobilizer when remote starting.

      No idea about adding advanced...

      Just use the high level input on the amp, tap it from the speaker wires either at the back of the head unit or at the speakers. If you don't have the harness for the high level inputs, use a line out...

      To be honest, those no-name Chinese head units are usually more trouble than they're worth. The included manuals are not complete and often so poorly translated that they're useless, there is little...

      Not all Androids require 2.1A, it varies from device to device. Even those that do use a higher amperage than the USB spec (500mA) will usually charge at a slower rate on anything as low as 500mA.

      I've been through five filter/fluid changes and mine doesn't leak. Always replace the O-ring when replacing the filter, and torque the filter housing per factory specs. Over tightening it will cause...

      Not particularly. I am in need of an alignment, and it pulls ever so slightly at highway speeds, but it's hardly noticeable.

      Henrik, do you have a TDI? That may explain the confusion.

      I used the PAC harness and it came with harnesses for both factory connectors (quadlock and DIN.)

      Edit: It sounds like you also got both harnesses. Were you not able to swap the portion with the...

      All I needed on my '07 was coding to enable the paddles and MF controls. You're going to need a 12 point triple square (or XZN) socket to get the wheel off. Can't remember off the top of my head what...
