Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Love the question marks in the full service history for the Saab (specifically on the replaced engine)

In the Spring I need to do a coolant change anyway, so I figured. I might as well go hard

 

 

 

Gonna follow his superclean tutorials for the entire exterior of the car, and the inside of the windshield. The Saab will be so mint by spring time. I'd do everything sooner but the high today was 45. So no.

Have my only clip from Roadkill Nights I still have

 

Don't know why 1080P Superview 60FPS footage looks so odd on Instagram. If you guys want me too I could still record a walkaround of my car. If you guys would even want to watch that

Gonna be doing a new headunit next year with my buddy AJ (Stereo and subs man)

 

Gonna be a little more involved than other cars, and obviously not going to be doing the ipod stuff, but I want a general nice bluetooth Pioneer headunit. Preferably doubledinn but I'd take a single. Want to keep everything working, including my steering wheel controls. Speakers are all already upgraded so the headunit is one of the nice upgrades I want to do. I want to keep this car for a long long time and want to make it even nicer than it already is. We should have a easier time with this than we did with the TC, but this is also just a headunit swap, not adding subs and stuff while at it

maybe get a pioneer double din unit that has apple carplay/android auto? those seem pretty sweet, integrating new age tech into an old style car.

I'm not going to be dropping more than $150 on a headunit. Maybe it's just me, but I don't see a point to Android Auto. I want to put money into other goodies too. Suspension, wheels, tires, sway bars, exhaust, intake. I want to do a lot with this car. It only has 111K on the engine and I want to have a fun time with it for a long while.

 

Probably going to go with this, AJ has installed this in both his Camry and TC and I love this headunit. It's perfect for what I want really

I'll send you a snapchat of what the single din I've got is. It's a pretty decent one that I think retails right at $160

idk, i kinda like android auto/apple carplay since it's a neat way to integrate modern day tech into a car that's not up to tech. plus, i'm sure it's quite futureproof for a few years, since i doubt android or ios will be unsupported a few years from now. but it's your money, you can spend it your way. i prefer to integrate this tech into a 10-15 year old car because it's nice to see some upgraded modern tech in an older car that wasn't available 10-15 years ago.

I just don't see the use really. Because if I wanted navigation support I could just get a mount for my phone. That's probably the only Android Auto feature I'd ever see myself using and don't see it being worth the extra cash

Oh you're gonna get the double din they talked about on the Saab thread?

It's the same double din we've installed in both of AJ's Toyotas (Scion counts as a Toyota at the end of the day) It's a really nice unit I like, he's comfortable with installing, and I like how it looks. Not the one from the Saab thread, that thread is also 6 years old at this point

Just asked him really quickly and he's on board for the Stereo project for the Saab. James is onboard for assisting me with mechanical mods (Suspension, intake, exhaust) you get the idea really.

 

Oh man the hype is real. Mom's BF's Dad knows a guy that can do really good tint jobs for cheap, did a 5% job on a Ranger for $30 and it's held up well (did it 10 years ago) So for sub $100 I'll get the Saab's windows tinted. I'm hyped

what about streaming music? that can help a lot too, because you can ask your head unit to skip music for you, without having to interact with your phone.

Can always just hit the next track button on the headunit. Maybe if I had a newer sleeker car to begin with I would spring for it, but with a 17 year old wagon ehh. Maybe if it was 2005+

My single din does this. You just hit skip.

I wish I could fit a double din in the s10. One that is easy to turn the display off on.

i mean can't you get those flip up ones that still have a touchscreen capability? might look tacky, but they provide dual din functionality in single din space.

They are pretty nice, I'd do a single din if the stereo was laid out differently in the Saab, but climate controls are under the stereo so it would be odd to have a pocket under the stereo and then there be the climate controls

 

I just like how simple single units are, doubles have grown on me a lot after doing many roadtrips with AJ in the Camry and TC
