  1. 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.
  2. Osram Nightbreakers are the only quick and cheap option. Next would be retrofitting LED projectors.
  3. 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.
  4. https://www.thesun.co.uk/travel/3866418/a-couple-who-converted-a-ford-transit-into-a-camper-van-for-under-2k-are-now-road-tripping-across-europe/
  5. I have used a set. Nothin special, just like any other brand name.
  6. I have just watched the video, there was no metal cover there, mine had one. Regardless, doesn't change the procedure.
  7. 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.
  8. Neither work in the phone browser but thanks for the suggestion. I use a normal login, not facebook.
  9. I've been changing my pollen filters all these years for no reason!
  10. I can't log in from my phone at all. Keeps throwing me back to login dialogue.
  11. 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.
  12. The battery location is quite inelegant.

  14. A sliding load floor option. Better headlights.
  15. The load rating is sometimes given as XL instead of numbers (Extra load), these will also work.
  16. I'm sure it drives fine. I have an Avensis Wagon '09 which is an excellent highway car. I drove 1400 miles non-stop to Germany last year and didn't even feel tired. I would love to get the CH-R but it's not really a family vehicle.

  18. I set the scale. Make sure not to step on it.
  19. The smallest one would be the first generation low-roof SWB, which was never imported to USA:
  20. What type of fridge are you talking about? Mine's just a square bucket with a cooling fan on top. It can keep sandwiches fresh but not cool a six pack of beers down.
  21. I don't really listen to music anymore, after discovering podcasts nearly a decade ago. So much to learn and so little time left.
  22. Don't have the suitable car (or could afford one) for that :D But thanks, it's a nice thought.
  23. That's a great design kit for a rather bland Citroen Jumper mid-size van: http://www.fubiz.net/2017/05/23/iconic-citroen-type-h-revisited/ Also includes a Porsche mid engine and mahogany flooring in the future H.
  24. I wasn't around during 8-track era but I also have fond memories of Skinny Puppy "blaring" from the Philips cassette tape with windows rolled down. The sound quality was complete crap tho. Didn't know it at the time.
