    Where are you mounting the original head-end?

    Original head unit has been relocated to the trunk in order to keep all the factory functions operable. I wish I could figure out how to resize all my pics so they'd upload. Damnit!!! Lol

    I'm confident your new head-end provides many features, etc. but how hard it is to change preferences? I envision seat settings to be a two-person job but most of the rest generally 'set & forget'.

    Posting pics, I've got the same issue. My snapshots are 2+ MB jpeg's. I suppose the camera's software could save them in lower resolution but then quality suffers. Such is life. I suppose I ought to post them somewhere on the web and post links here.

    Your absolutely correct but if I remove the factory unit, I also lose all the bells and chimes, such as back up sensors, chime if u leave keys in the car, so on & so on, it's just nice to have all factory functions still working as well as now I have in car Bluetooth for phone calls, backup camera, full navigation through the double din while watching a movie on the ipad & all kinds of other cool things! Lol

    Many use a free photobucket.com account for pictures to post here. Once stored there, they supply an IMG code block that pastes right into a CF post - like this...

    Ah yes, all the technical stuff is done & everything works flawlessly. The new body worked bezel, shifter trim & passenger side dash strip are all at a buddy of mines body shop getting custom airbrushed wood grain to match the car instead of standard Burlwood. Pics of the finished installed trim are soon to follow. Also just did the headliner in Black Suede after 3 layers of dynamat applied to the inside of the roof,

    Love the black suede headliner.

    If it were me, I would've painted all the accent pieces to match, but to each their own.

    I have all the plastic pieces in ebony. I'm just waiting till I finish converting the rest of the interior to suede and ebony leather to install them all. The car came with all gray, so I started with the headliner since I can do everything else after without removing the headliner again.
