Who has the China navigation unit?

Does anyone here have the China navigation unit from Alibaba or anywhere else? I'm deciding between that or the FlyAudio. I have an older FlyAudio which doesn't work properly anymore and I like the...

Can I change the oil once every year?

Is one year too long of a wait to change the oil using synthetic Mobil 1? I've been changing my oil on my IS350 every six months with synthetic but I'll be getting a new daily driver around the end...

I think I might end up getting an S4. Evo's aren't worth it for what they have. Still bugs me that they go for over $25K with literally nothing. I got my IS350 for $20K with 49K miles 4 years ago. I...

Should I get an Evo X or Audi S4?

I'm looking to get a daily driver that's AWD so I can use it in the winter with less headaches. Currently I have an IS350 so I'll drive it occasionally in good weather. I'm also looking for a car...

The cuts seem pretty deep but looking closely at it, I don't see the cords anywhere. The amount that got cut off is less than half the tread amount so I'm guessing it's okay as you said. Thanks!

Should I replace this tire?

I don't think they're talking about the cluster repair. They might be talking about the LED swap for the whole interior meaning the NAV unit, radio, window switches, and all that.

Yeah, there's a ~2 gallon reserve. When I was driving my IS350 in high school, I was too cheap to afford gas and ran it past 0 range often. I only ran out of gas once and that was going 40 miles past...

You definitely need a lip if you decide to go with a quad exhaust. You have to cut the bumper either way. I've seen a few locals who bought dual mufflers and just cut the bumper to fit it. Looks...
