Yep, the base system is muddy and awful.

There is some consensus so far that the open air subwoofer (and perhaps OEM subwoofer crossover or low pass filter setting) is a piece of junk. I'd like...

On these cars, the shifter is a direct mechanical linkage that moves a lever; the other end of the lever operates a switch inside the transmission. So, you can expect some mechanical feedback...

RC350 Console Mod ?

Ever since RC350 interior pictures popped up, I've wanted to replace the cheap shiny plastic / unpadded parts on the IS350 console with this part.

Does anyone know if it would bolt/clip right on?
