I opted for faster, I think. I sent them a follow up asking for tracking today.Did you choose the faster or slower shipping option? I went faster. They sent me notice it shipped but no tracking info. They emailed me back saying they are connected with DHL looking for it.
Take a look at this:Radio:
Installed a double din and works fine. Couldn't find my last install kit so made some supports but they are not strong and will need to be replaced with proper straps. If I had to start over I would not have started and bought a 1.5 din or double din front with single din rear to avoid some of the hassle. i have no issue cutting into the center console but my workmanship was a tad sloppy and there was more trial and error than anticipated. Mind you, if I decide to go back, I can easily replace the console and make a proper plate for a single din. The biggest issue is the extra spacing around the radio and stock opening. Will have to dress it up a it.
Yes, no-name versions of this are as cheap as $30 (u.s.). These do not take cd and I still prefer cd over mp3 and do ot stream when driving. The width will fit the LS console front but height is still too tall so a cutout from the bottom console is still required. The compound din units (double din face, single din rear) fit in standard single din slots and have larger faces. Anything that motors upwards blocks all of the controls. Fixed face ones are likely easier to work with Sample pix of motorized version attached.Take a look at this:
If height wise a double din will fit, something like this is the best option.
Sorry for the bird image. Kids were updating their x box and with my limited bandwidth, upload started hanging so I left my terminal for dinner not realizing I had grabbed that image as well. Bird was an infant that fell out of a tree along with 2 siblings and nest. Tree was too far up to reach and siblings were dead but I noticed shallow breathing and figured I would help it out. Amazing growth over a week but I fear it will not have the skills to survive in the wilds and may have to keep it or adopt out. You need some skills to live in the wilds....kind of like being an Alfa 164 owner.Here we go.
Happens with a lot of European cars. You have stuff you want to sell but nobody wants it, then you blowout price it and people still negotiate you down. Then when you need it, the only one you can find the guy wants $200 for.Came to the conclusion that unless you live in a large metropolitan area used Alfa parts have virtually no value.
Unless you are the one needing to BUY them, then they are worth their weight in platinum!
Being VERY careful from now on as to what spares I buy, need to clear clutter but not going to give away good parts.
