I replaced my 4300k hid bulbs with 6000k. Not a big difference, but I like them better

about 8 thousand. i took a million incase someone asked that question lol. if you look in the "how do you run your aux thread or whatever its called that i started there'* alot of info there, but for novice electronics repair guys like myself there arent enough details in the tutorial i linked to. ill work on getting a write up post in there within the next few hours.

if you have some thin gauge wire (24ish) a soldering iron and some shrink tubing, it only costs $3.25 us for this mod. thats what the jack costs. oh and you need a random cassette. im using an old ac/dc cassette thats all stretched out and sounds like crap lol.

Sweet. I'll have to take a look. I'm sick of using the shitty cassette adapter that barely works, and sounds horrible. lol

Well, you may have just saved me from buying a new deck. I'm not sure if thats good or bad yet. lol It looks like the same aux jack is $6 here. I might pick one up next week, along with some wire. I don't think I have any that small.
