6/15/2012 | Decided to fill her up and finally test drive her. Just my luck. Fuel leak.

DeatschWerks 265 LPH

I did not install the fuel pump. I had a local shop do it.

I got done installing everything and getting everything to fit properly so I decided to take the girl out. It was Friday night So I filled the tank up, went to a movie and came out and the car was reaking of gas. I sent a text to the guy who worked on it and told him what happened and his response was "bring it in Monday and I'll take a look at it".....Idk about you, but its Friday night and was car is leaking gas here. And you just want me to wait until Monday morning? That doesn't seem right to me. But luckily the car stops leaking after about a half hour. So from Friday night till I dropped it off this morning I lost exactly half a tank and only drove 12 miles. I'm slightly pissed about the whole thing. I was going to put my car in the Fathers Day car show but really didn't want someone smoking around it and next thing I know my car is 15 feet in the air exploding haha.

So I guess we'll see what they have to say.

Every time I would get in my car my nav screen would go to a blank screen and would say "Call Interrupt"...This would be very frustrating getting in the car and my music not playing automatically. You would have to click Menu, and then HD Radio, or ipod etc. Doesn't seem like a pain, but it was. You don't realize how annoying it is. So I tore into the head unit to fix this issue.

Cut the mute wire. Ta Da. Now everything works how its suppose to.

Hahaha .. like when people ask me what I'm doing with my car, I've started just telling them I'm trying to kill it.
You should just start yelling at them for no reason

Give me a few days to learn more about it and figure out all the features. And ib be glad too.

Haha. That's done with my camera. Thanks to photoshop.

How's that KW HU? And how do the new speaker's sound? WOuld you recommend this setup?

So far I'm really liking it. The touch is very light and it's pretty precise and accurate. The colors are very vivid and bright and extremely easy to read. The bluetooth works like a charm and I like how it downloads your contacts and phone history into it. I also have the rear view camera hooked up to it and looks awesome. I would reccomdend this HU to anyone. Oh. And the navigation rocks.

As far as the speakers go. I have a little more playing around to do to get it just right. I didn't put in a sub woofer bc I didn't really want my car thumping that loud. I was just looking for a solid sounding system that didn't sound like it was in a tin can. I think I may need to get a amp though to help out. But overall. I am very happy with my purchase and would do it again tomorrow.
