      ive used cheap-O ebay leds for months without a hitch

      Search on ebay and buy the cheapest ones. They do take forever ever to arrive though since they come from china.

      I just buy extra sets to have in case since there so cheap

      Don't get a Euro version. They are missing a lot of the features and you won't be able to upgrade them with US based firmware.

      If price is a concern for you, just get an early revision (A unit) US based unit.

      The key is to just look as much as possible and bite on the right deal. Classfieds is a good place to start. I also look on ebay for mispelled parts gotten lucky a few times.

      Looking great! I love how the vinyl wrapped emblem blends against the red. Gives it a more sleek look.

      Car looks great! So is the nav a plug and play deal? Do you need anything else, like antenna or other modules? Does it also display on your MFD?

      Seeing as how all the other DIY's ive seen don't do the best job explaining the connections, YES. I'll snap a bunch of pics along the way too

      Ill probably have my parts sometime next week.

      Thanks! Nav is plug and play for the most part. You do need a GPS antenna which is a couple bucks if you dont get it with your radio. You may need to code steering wheel controls as only half of mine worked. Some peoples will just work out the gate. (Its always better to code your radio regardless if its "plug-n-play" or not)

      Also only shows in MFD for gli's since they have a full screen mfd

      You know it haha.

      I will say this though:

      It's pretty hard having a bright red car and fancy wheels as it is. People tend to give you the "evil eye" or head turns a lot more.
      The price I pay for going with t-red haba Don't regret it though. Just hate having too much attention sometime when I park anywhere lol.

      Oh well
