Iphone mount

Any of you mounted your iPhones around the dash area? Currently I have the cable running to the centre compartment between the seats. Was thinking about using a sat nav app and trying to think ov thr best place to mount it without having wires running everywhere.

I didn't replace with anything and I'm happy how it looks. I will post pics up later if I get to wiri...

Alarm Problems

I've been having some problems with my alarm again recently. It just keeps going off randomly! Previously it was a problem with the sensor behind the stereo. I changed the stereo and forgot to put the "finger" into the sensor. Anyway that was the 1st thing I checked and the finger is still there. I ...

Im looking at getting a new set of wheels and think I'm going to go for AC Schnitzer Type 3's. I have seen a set of 17" for a fair price and was hoping somebody could post up a photo of a set of 17's on the car. I have seen some guys z's on here with 18's is there much of a difference? Cheers
