Had my cutouts installed today. If you do this mod, pay the extra $75 bucks and get the remote control - with it you can open them a little or a lot or any combination thereof. Plus one doesn't...

Actually I'm running mine in CD-MP3 mode as well; what threw me off is the fact that it still reads "CD Changer - MP3" at the top left. Full true "CD CHANGER" mode doesn't show any file information;...

The latest version is 13.1. Cost at my local dealer last month was just under $300 which included everything. I only upgraded as my 2007 car was on the original (6.1) map.

Nothing looks better than black when clean and shiny. Which is why I buy silver cars - too lazy to keep them clean! :)

I would like it to resume at the point the song was playing, as the HD does, CD's do, DVD's, etc.
Does yours really do this too? Can't tell your level of sarcasm.:)

Vaistech (ML+) MediaLinQ Plus - anyone notice this?

I've had mine in on a 2007 with Mark L stereo for over a month. I'm using it in CD changer emulation mode with a 120GB ipod / USB.

I noticed today that after I shut the car off and come back...

williakz, at slower speeds yes the shortest distance does seem to allow people to cut in front. However at 75-85 MPH cruising it's perfect, and even the manual said it's not meant for heavy traffic....

Which wires did you tap into for this? If I don't have to pull a door panel for leads I might grab a set - I take it you get 2 in this auction? I'd probably do all 4 doors.

The LS430 had a grommet right under the front passenger footwell - are you sure there isn't one like this on the 460? Also, why couldn't I run it down the same area with the gearshift?

But I don't need to be near the engine compartment; rather I need to be underneath past the CATs all the way towards the rear. This is to control the exhaust cutout butterfly valve(s).

Run a wire from center console to underneath car?

I'm doing the electric cutout option, and my choices are
1) Muffler shop 1 - will do everything including wiring for $450
2) Muffler shop 2 - will do just the welding for $100, no wiring.

It's a...

My 2007 car looks exactly like that except the light grey interior + the exec package. My chrome wheels are identical too and must be the Teleios option as they've held up extremely well.

Anyone who thinks the 460 is a rough ride needs to go buy the Lexus IS-F. Not the F-Sport IS, but the true IS-F. Now THAT is a rough ride. The 460 is a creampuff.
