Re: Has anyone seen/used this head unit?

Since we're on the topic of taking the headlights apart, do you know if it would it be possible to take a OEM headlight lens and put it on the Gen 3's? I love the studded/ribbed design over the running lights.

I don't see why not, they should be about dimensionally the same. What don't you like about the Projectors headlight lens? I like how it's more transparent and it has that chrome behind it to better reflect the light.

Chrome? Mine doesn't have any chrome attached to the lens that I could see.
I don't have any problem with the Gen 3 lenses, I just prefer the way the OEM has the design on the bottom. I don't like how the middle running light looks less bright than the other two, and I think that the OEM's studded design helps to balance the light in the middle column.

I think I know what you're saying.

Re: Has anyone seen/used this head unit?

Sorry for any confusion, the college ran my brain dry today and I'm having a hard time articulating my thoughts currently
I decided not to change it, I think I'm just going to go with brighter switchback led's. I just have to examine every option lol.

Yeah that would be your best bet. Are you going with the original flashbacks or the new Platinum series?

Re: Has anyone seen/used this head unit?

For the money youre going to spend on that head unit, you could get a setup similar to mine : Jensen VM9312HD flip out dvd player, I got on ebay a year and a half ago new from vminnovations for 250 bucks. it has alot of accessories you can add to it ie: $200 navigation module, back up camera input, j link ipod cable(charges newer ipods as well), a remote input adapter(for ipod link, audio video input/output, and aux 3.5mm jack). most of this stuff has been reduced in price since i bought it, and so far its held up great and the picture quality for movies n such is amazing, the wire harness, antennae adapter and dash kit on ran me 75 or so, but the problem is cramming it all in the dash.
