Topic: LED VS. HID??
Replies: 15

If you are referring to headlights, LED is a relatively newcomer to the scene. They are now found in some new 2012 models as an added option (i.e. Accord). I haven't played around with any full LED headlights but if they are finally up to par with HIDs, they will be the way to go. From previous know...

LED retrofit guages

Hi everybody! So I attempted to swap out my amber lighting in the interior for a more favorable red lighting theme. Well to my dismay the pathfinder with dual climate controls does not use leds to light up. It uses tine little halogens :evil:

Back to the drawing board.

Exterior wise, I vote for the bull bar, clearing the headlights, either upgrading or powder coating the wheels, and possibly giving it a lift.

Interior is a whole different ball game.

I think not. we are practically driving an american made car with amercan made quality. THIS IS REALLY PISSING ME OFF!!!! SO MUCH MONEY AND YOU GET THIS CRAP. A PA...

Lower Dash Usage

Hi guys. I was just wondering what others are using that lower cubby hole under our A/C controls for. It looks like a single din radio can fit there maybe even a double if those switches were re-routed elsewhere. I'm just curious to see if anyone has done anything in that area.

FS - pioneer FH-P800BT

As the title says. Selling my used pioneer radio. Comes with ipod wire and bluetooth mic. Excellent receiver for someone needing ipod connectivity and hands free bluetooth. Reason why I'm selling is because i really want a DVD in-dash player. Asking for $150+s/h. Local buyers preffered but willing t...

I know a lot of people swear by HIDs in their stock housings. Truth of the matter is you will get glare and you will piss some people off. It does matter where you drive though. I know here in Cali, you'd get flashed. Anyhow I know you said money was not an object. That you wanted quality over looks...

Hmmm, after seeing them again at night I can conclude that I really don't like em. Here are my gripes with them; 1. The location - Too high and clearly appears to be non-oem. Then again non of our Pathys have leds so I guess one could argue anywhere is a bad location. 2. The color temp - Looks like ...

Its hard to say why its not working. Most likely the dvd player has a single configuration (NTSC or PAL). Newer players can read both. You can try burning them again with different parameters, try using better quality dvds, and/or burn them at much lower speeds. First though try to determine about t...

Hmmm, not my cup of tea if you ask me. Those strips look like they are not waterproof which would concern me. Also the location is questionable too. This was something I've been thinking about adding to my truck, but I abandoned the idea after deciding that it just would not look right on our brawny...

I got the pio FH-P800bt double din sitting at home waiting to be installed in my truck. Its a pretty kick arse HU if you ask me. My only gripes with it is that she is lit up with blue leds while everything in our trucks are amber. But in your case I'm guessing you do not have the dual AC, just the r...

Dude you are the man thanks. So the LE body panel in the back is different from my SE one. Good to know.

Nice work on the repair job. How do they sound?

Well, I got frisky and pulled the cover off the speaker. Snapped some of the mount tabs so I'll have to order another cover (luckily they're only $5 from courtesy). Sure enough, the center cap on the cone (over the voice coil) had started to separate from the cone. Read a few threads on some audio ...

Sorry. I meant which was the the OEM bulb facing when it was in it stock position? Again, I just want to get LED bulb replacements. Something like this or similar. I don't know if I need the leds just at the top or need some light coming out from the sides, just depending on how the OEM bulb is pla...
