Today I had installed the following:
New pioneer head unit with apple car play
Reversing camera
JL audio subwoofer with amp in boot.
Bass filter on fronts.

Very pleased with the sound improvements subwoofer is dialled right down at the moment as the brake light and rear view mirror was shaking like hell. Need to look into some options for reducing this so I can dial it up again. Had some focals for the front planned as well but it sounds so awesome now. I probably won’t bother.

Check whether your Pioneer head unit starts up reliably as some have an issue where with the timing of the push-button start, they stay off for a minute or so....which gets old really fast. And Pioneer are no help.

Brake light: remove it. Problem solved!

Applied 2 coats of Poorboys wheel sealant after a good clean.  Really smooth finish, to hopefully reduce the brake dust sticking!

Thanks Diane.  Used a lot of their stuff over the years, but never this product.  We shall see how it stands up!  Smile

Lovely finish, although if I got my wheels that clean I wouldn't want to drive the car!

Thanks Paul.  Not a problem! Gotta get some brake dust on there now to see how well the sealant works.  Wink

Painfully jealous of your wheel/brake combo! Looks fantastic.

Well not me but my other half decided to test the GT86's key fob by putting it through the washing machine whilst in my shorts pocket.

Note to all, if you do this then DON'T press any buttons but put the key in the sun (or airing cupboard in winter) for 8 hours, after a thorough drying out mine still works perfectly.

Thank you Milk!  Took months to decide on the wheels, and 20 minutes to decide on the brakes.
