  1. I once helped a guy compare the transmission configuration in my Toyota. His CVT belt blew due to lack of maintenance. He bought the car used and it had 280 000 km (175K mi) on the odo. He managed to source the original manufacturer of the transmission parts in China and got it running for a couple of hundred (did his own labor), including resurfacing the pulleys which got damaged by the belt chips. So it can be done and more so in the future when the novelty factor is gone.

  3. CVT is the best for small engines, IMHO. They're getting more and more common as well as the technology has matured.
  4. My friend installed LED bulbs in place of factory HID. Much brighter but also too bright in front of the car. Almost unbearable. He loves it tho.
  5. Osram Nightbreakers are the only quick and cheap option. Next would be retrofitting LED projectors.
  6. You should only mess with rear speakers and subwoofers when your standard setup already sounds so good that it doesn't really need anything else done to it. So, insulate the doors, change the speakers, all tweeters, add an amp first.

  8. I have used a set. Nothin special, just like any other brand name.
  9. I have just watched the video, there was no metal cover there, mine had one. Regardless, doesn't change the procedure.
  10. Changing is easy. Remove the passenger side piece under the wipers, then a tin cover from under it and there it is. Easy with yanking stuff, the plastic may have become brittle over time.There's possibly a plastic grid tray there which you need to remove to install a generic filter. My original filter was in the plastic grid but the aftermarket one fit in the bottom tray, had to leave the grid thingy out.
  11. Neither work in the phone browser but thanks for the suggestion. I use a normal login, not facebook.
  12. I've been changing my pollen filters all these years for no reason!
  13. I can't log in from my phone at all. Keeps throwing me back to login dialogue.
  14. Which air filter do you mean, pollen filter for the vent? There should be one. Also, speakers are easy to replace with better ones. What's weird is that the older model had excellent headlights.
