    Minimum disassembly. You can use the existing connector in the OEM speaker to transfer over to the new speakers for plug and play.

    Did the same this week , and front doors speakers too, what an improvement!!! Choose to flush install using the grids for supporting the tweeters , looks good and sounds amazing !!(y) Had to cut bottom side of speakers baffles because it was killing the sound, just wanted to protect the speakers from water...

    Thanks to Priuschat I installed LED side mirrors! Also added vinyl wrap, TRD springs, and spray painted the stock hubcaps.

    No one knows it’s a base model with 213k miles! The EGR was the only issue it had.

    You should paint the wheel covers red to match the car. :)

    Yes, really. The "silver" on the wheel covers would look better in red. (y)

    So, I bought my 2012 knowing there wasn't a good place (subjective!) to stick my phone while driving. The front cupholder (the one with the lid) is ok with the lid open and no drink there. The little slot between the two cupholders would be perfect if it was about 2-3 inches deeper so the phone didn't fly out when turning corners. Has anyone figured out a way to make this happen in a clean way?

    No, I don't want a phone mount. The lower tray down by the 12v and seat heater controls is too low for my tall self.

    I played a little with Techstream and modified odometer to know how will appear when close to 1 million...
    Also is displayed maximum speed.

    No, it was only a test, after I closed the test, the odometer goes to old value...

    Friday.

    Yesterday.

    No, it is not loud and there isn't a sound clip. You hear a low rumble when you turn the car on. 20210404_143425.jpg 20210404_143409.jpg 20210403_010706.jpg

    Yep! Either paint the "T" red and the background black, or the "T" black and background red.

    A little bit of autocrossing in the PNW. After the last round of chassis stiffening I've hit the limits of the Tein springs. Next up I need to find a nice set of coilovers for street and track use. IMG_4493.JPG IMG_4526.JPG IMG_4608.JPG IMG_4564.JPG
