I basically just chose the kartboy because it's gotten the most rave reviews.

Btw, I drove for about 100km today with the XPT tune and the car is noticeably quicker...and maybe it's just me but the car also seems louder. XPT doesn't seem to have that big of a following here but so far I'm really liking the tune.

little interior update...



Just installed my kartboy ss today.

Oh Dagz, I'm pretty sure you can run the cables from the Alpine HU through to the center console, but you'll have to remove the factory outputs and just feed the Alpine cables through. I might end up doing that later, but ran out of time today.

Dagz, took a look at it again today. All you have to do is feed the Alpine cables underneath all the panel pieces which you have to remove to install your short shifter. After that, you can remove the stock usb and aux plugs- they just come right out. You have to drill through the walls where the stock usb and aux are and then you can just feed the cables through. I didn't end up doing it because I wanted to keep the stock connections intact in case I put the old HU back in, but I still didn't want the cables in the glove because it's just inconvenient to have to open/close the compartment.

I did this instead.


Easy access to the cables and when I want to hide them I just put them under the seat.

Quoted for truth. But definitely TEs. No knock-off wheels!

I thought the 11's all had auto climate control?

I was actually looking at both sets last night. I probably won't have the money for them this summer, but I'll probably pickup the Volks sometime next year.

I think my next step is to get a stage 2 pro tune and do the RCE yellows, sway bars, and kartboy endlinks.

Naw, the base '11 doesn't have auto climate control. TBH I didn't look at the differences between the base and the sport tech package close enough. Had I known I wouldn't get fog lights, HIDs, and auto climate control I probably would have gone for the sport tech package instead.
