Re: Leather seats

I replaced the cloth in ours with the factory leather and it is by far the mod I've been happiest with...no more worrying about the seats getting stained when it's raining!

Re: WK 3.7 Shudder

Re: WK 3.7 Shudder

tranny flush and throttle body cleaning took care of it on our '06 3.7. it had about 35k on it when we got that done, 10k later and it hasn't returned.

Re: Sat nav retro-fit??

if you don't have the boston acoustics system, it will be FAR cheaper to go aftermarket. I went with a Pioneer AVIC that has bluetooth, ipod, and nav in a double din unit and couldn't be happier....
