    Ain't exactly pimpin, just a Micra that was me Dad's but was free and it gets me around for now.

    Just installed new stereo, been doing with cassettes and radio so far. Had the stereo a few months but didn't get round to it, was a bit of a mission, never dabbled with car before, trips to Halfords for connectors, and working how how to unassemble dashboard and how to assemble fitting, combining old mount with new mount etc, but is ace. Loud and clean, plays MP3s and memory sticks, so been compiling up the cds.

    Know this won't impress many folk, but was bit of an accomplishment when you never tried doin owt before.

    :clown:

    Got Coshh's new mix on there, and am open to some new recommendations for new mixes on here. Got 700 mile round trip to Portsmouth at wkend.:rinsed:

    Hmm.

    Was thinking about replacing speakers, but will be getting new(er) car soon so won't bother.

    My cousin spent £3k on his system, more than the car's worth.:rinsed:

    Holla brother.

    I just installed two 8" subs in my car & two new 6x9's cause i blew out my factory ones :teeth:

    Such a huge improvement, i got a sub in my studio so my car seemed a bit lacking until now.

    Hard to appreciate bass music without the punch - otherwise its like eating a bologna sandwich with no bread
