    Pretty sure they wouldn’t bill the job at 4 hours;).

    Based on my 5 times or so doing the job, there is usually at least 1 fitment issue along the way:(.

    But those cards appear tight to the vest:cool:

    I tried (y).

    Probably not faster than 10 minutes;).

    Then you’d have the sticky mess to deal with which you’d water wash off anyway:cool:.

    But give it a shot and let us k ow how it goes(y).

    All depends if we’re draining the coolant. Usually takes 30 mins to disassemble once the rad is empty. Then another 30 to reassemble. Then fill rad & bleed.

    Agreed, it is darker. Just wanted to impersonate all the people who leaves feedback exactly like that on Amazon after their 12,000 OCI.

    Thanks for the generous offer for the EGR circuit cleaning, still leaning on doing that during winter season late in the year or early next.

    Check the egr circuit especially if over 100k miles ;).

    A dirty circuit affects mpg(y).

    Happy owner for the last 5 months here the mods I did until today:

    1) Did the auto headlights mod putting a button instead of a stalk with auto position. Also got at the same place a usb charger and a obd on/off switch to turn off the obd bluetooth dongle without removing it.

    2) Got at the rear of the armrest a usb charger also for the people at the back.

    3) Replaced the factory HU with one with Android. By far the most enjoyable mod I did. Also connected a parking camera to it.

    4) Got some footwell lights with interchangeable colors. Liked the blue most.

    5) Installed xiaomi's mirror that records both front and rear while driving. Good quality.

    6) Replaced the stock led in the left/right mirror with a triple function light which illuminate the floor when you unlock the car / open a door, has a position white light that turns off and lights orange for turning light.

    7) Replaced the front bumpet turn lights with some Chinese double bulbs serving as turn lights and DRL. They look really great. I hope they will last..

    8) Got the wondows tinted!

    9) Finally I installed an obd dongle that closes all windows when lock and also puts everything down when you press the unlock button 3 times. In addition it locks the doors when I reach 12 km/h and unlocks them when I turn off the car.

    That's all for now

    What model head unit did you go with? I've been considering one myself.

    All I did lately was crash another Mississippi car show. This time there was another import present, and THREE cars made this century!
