  1. Gauges are good I guess.. but if you are too busy hard out driving it you won't even get to look at them .. digital with peak hold,etc would be ok. I've got Android car stereo with the 10.2" screen($450) and BTSSM running, so I get gauges and logging/alerts, just using the VAG cable too ($8)
  2. I park brake on, put in neutral, Start/stop then shift to park. Just saying as it sounds like you leave it in drive, id prefer to cut the engine load before turning off. Side note I have a 2007 Legacy BP - have you tried the morse code drivers door handle trick to get in without keys/fob - doesn't seem to work for me
  3. Update I'm on drugs. Seems to all be working, now no changes made... Someone nuke this thread
  4. ’t mind it myself. With the stereo I could only use the speaker ISO plug. As the Android head unit, for the power iso plug also had the swc controls built in while the stereo adapter doesn't, couldn't easily add pins. Used the radio provided iso plug that had bare ends to make the power and swc connections. The radio dims just fine when lights are turned off and goes bright when back on. The i85 plug has a green dimmer wire, I presumed based on the US site information above that the dimmer wire goes into stereo and comes back out on the i85 to body unit and then to the ac/clock. I'm never going back to factory so it didn't bother me about chopping the i85 plug. If the i85 doesnt affect clock or hvac, I can't see why they always stay dim. Especially if you guys are just using stock iso adapters and not touching the i85 except for swc
  5. BumpBump for me.. Any of your double din guys hooked up the dimmer or illumination wire to make the clock /hvac not be dim? @Andy_Mac@Kiwi_Fozze@McDoof@sobanoodle@subnoob123@AD1CT
  6. No sorry went in the bin
  7. Seicane S181016 Fitment worked out really well. You can tilt the screen up, down left and right. AND slide the whole screen up or down so I could make it lower cover the AC controls or higher cover the clock more. I still have the factory plastic on the screen as I need to remove again when the reversing camera comes. I plan on using a Galaxy tab screen protector cut to size or maybe the larger iPad pro. Think this will help with the glare too. BTSSM is using a $6 Aliexpress VAG cable with USB straight into headunit not needing separate OTG adapter. I presume its okay to leave the VAG cable always connected? Screen tilted flat - this is a really side on angle.. in normal sitting you can't see the mount at all And tilted down
  8. Put the JDM 2DIN dash kit in with aftermarket stereo and the clock/AC is dim like in night mode/headlights on Can anyone confirm how to fix it? I have already cut the i85 plug off (using 2 of the 3 wire for Steering Wheel Controls) leaving the Green wire #8 which is for dimmer. What can i connect the Green #8 wire to without having to mess with the i88 connector? From legacy GT site where they have to add wires from stock wiring harness to handle the JDM (our) AC units : Add a wire to pins, 2,4 and 8 on the i88 connector(hvac) Doesn't matter what color, just "jam" them in and zip tie the wires so they won't pull out. I also wrapped the wires around the harness(see pic) so they would have a little more play. the other ends of the those 3 wires will be spiced in(either side of the radio plug see pic for placement) if you do not want to splice into your factory wiring(as I didn't) you can put the illumination ground or negative or whatever you want to call it(-) onto regular ground, however you will only have 2 settings dim and bright(ok for me) The non- ghetto way just requires you to add actual pins to the harness but seeing as I don't have those, its ghetto but it works.
  9. @BMCracer @sobanoodle My mistake has caused confusion Not Stock Location and Not Stock Camera I want this one that replaces the left/right Numberplate light I'm going to go ahead and order it, I just don't want to pull apart the whole boot lid and find I can't actually access the number late lights from behind So not stock on the far left but one of the two number plate lights
  10. So I found a video of how to pull the boot lid apart .. but with his shaky camera action I can't see if the plate lights are reachable?
  11. I want to install a wireless reversing camera in what seems to be the factory position? The left or right plate light. When I tried to remove one of the lights the screw metal was soft as butter and stripped the head good so will need to sort that hopefully with my actual question. With the BP I assume if I pull off all the carpet/plastic trim on the boot lid, I will get to the back of the number plate lights and I can drop the light out that way and get better access to put the wireless transmitter in and do the other wiring?
  12. And you can actually see at night probably instead of with just the one
  13. Yep, I got the dash kit. I think it will stick out enough and it can rotate.. So main concern is clearing top of dash. I can fish for hazard.
  14. Searched. Jumping on this thread.. do you think this will fit? Just wondering with the hump in our dash above the stereo... this stereo, the top of the screen goes past the 2DIN hole. The website has all the other dimensions but not the mount dimensions So I found and clipped this shot from one of the few youtube videos of this stereo .. I just cant see where it over hangs the top or the bottom of the 2DIN.. this shot looks like its the bottom that overhangs
  15. yep its gone in the bin, I got a Subtech downpipe.
