    I braved to do 20%, but 35 percent in New York or even illegal, so long as I do illegal things, it is better to make it look good at the same time...

    Haven't updated in a while, but I did hit 10,000 miles this morning!



    So far the car has been great and I've only had 1 minor issue with it my brake light, but that was fixed under warranty. Other than that, the car is a blast to drive and I have all of these goodies sitting in boxes waiting to be installed. Soon I'll have the short shifter, low profile subwoofer and (hopefully) some new winter wheels on the car. That is unless Hurricane Irene does a number on my area this weekend!

    Got a sneak peak of some winter shoes that came in today from Discount Tire Direct:



    Drag DR-34 17x7.5. 45mm offset. Very excited for snow and can't wait to get these things on! I'm also getting my low profile subwoofer installed under the passenger seat this Sunday. I'll have pics and first impressions of that too.

    I upgraded my stereo, so I am going to sell the factory sub. The wiring is gone, but the sub is still brand new. Will sell for $100

    Got my subwoofer installed today! Ended up going with the low profile Boss Bass600 powered unit.

    Buy.com - Boss BASS600 Woofer

    It's mounted under the passenger seat and for the price it's a decent setup. I had to play with the mids/highs in the stock head unit. After that it sounds really nice. It's nowhere near as loud as the dual 12" subs in the trunk of my last car, but I knew that going in. Here are some pictures, I'll throw some videos up later.



    Seat all the way forward

    Seat halfway back (low view)


    The subwoofer is tucked away nicely and you can't see it unless you kneel down to look (like the last photo). I like the stealth of the install and it delivers some nice "bump", especially to whoever is riding shotgun!

    I was able to record a quick video tonight of the subwoofer in action. When it comes to recordings of exhausts and sound setups, in person is always better. That being said, I have a sub hooked up to my desktop and the video sounds pretty good. (If you can't tell, I like a little bit of bass )

    Ha thanks! The new car smell is gone...took me a while to accept that. The sub cost $99 at Amazon. I think it's been discontinued though because I can't find it on their site anymore.

    I paid $150 for the install (needed a wiring kit) and for $250 out the door, I'm a pretty happy camper. I didn't want to sacrifice trunk space and needed a little more low end. This does the job for cheap! Even the installer said it wasn't that bad for the price. The one you've got on Crutchfield seems like a good deal. I say go for it!
