  1. I don't think the V1 works the same if you take it apart and separate all the sensors. It's programmed to help you decide where the signal is coming from based on the strength of signals it is picking up from the front and rear sensors. When the distance between the two sensors goes from 3 inches to 10 feet, at different heights, it's not going to be able to analyze the signals the same way. I'm sure it will still "work" but it's not going to be as accurate. I thought about a bunch of different ways to mount it, and I finally decided just sticking it to the windshield about 3 inches below the rearview mirror and left or right of the antenna whenever I was using it gave me the best experience. I only use it on the interstates and long drives. It takes 15 seconds to stick it up and plug it in, and comes down with a one handed motion in no time.
  2. Hmmmm...well, the headlights are working, and so are the fog/parking lights. I feel like something is shorted. Something else that is happening is that when I have the headlights on, I can hear a buzz in my speakers. And there is an clicking noise in the speakers whenever I am moving (headlghts on or off).
  3. Do you mean from behind? Thanks for the pictures, that unit fits there quite well it looks! Having been through several iterations of upgrades, which include upgrading the head unit, amp, dash speakers, door speakers with baffle, and finally a custom sub, I can tell you that getting a good custom sub in your car is definitely what you need if you want awesome clear sound with good tight bass while you're driving 80mph with the top down. I spent a lot of time trying to avoid the expense, but now I couldn't be happier. Techno, house, rap, 80's hairband, all sound fantastic when the music is pumped up and you can feel it in your chest but still hear crystal clear vocals. I used to spend 6-8 hours a week on the interstate in the car, so I definitely know this particular issue well. A lot of upgrades sound *good*, but if you want awesome, you have to get a good sub. In my opinion, and the problem that I haven't quite solved yet, is that getting great mids is probably the hardest part of getting the Boxster to sound perfect. There is definitely certain music that is heavy on the mids that don't sound great at lower volumes...I put in the rear Bose Sounddeck which has helped, but I still haven't gotten the mids right where they should be. Not sure if it can be done. Bhavesh
  4. Hi, my Headlight On Warning Sound suddenly stopped functioning a few months ago...anyone have any ideas as to what might be going on? e.g. I'm talking about the chime/bell that goes off if you leave your headlights on after you take the key out. I suddenly stopped getting that warning.....which has led to a few drained batteries :( thanks for any thoughts, Bhavesh
  5. OMG...This looks AWESOME. I have replaced everything in my 97 boxster, finally putting an Alpine double-din in after moving the instrument cluster....I've lived with the 1cm gap at the top for years, and now I feel so GHETTO. Hats off! Where are you in regards to a universal mounting kit that would work for me, and how hard would it be for me to get some custom trim from you? Thanks! Bhavesh
  6. I have a custom 8" sub that was built by Jamey Rawlings who used to be with Paris Audio...It sounds awesome and I pound the h*ll out of it...e.g. mirrors vibrating, punchy bass (on the right song), seats vibrating, etc. It's really amazing. On the install, basically I drilled a screw right through the back of the speaker box into the floor board. E.g. remove the drive to access in the inside of the enclosure, drill the screw through, and replace the driver. Be careful not to use too long of a screw or you will go into the gas tank (not a problem unless you ever have to remove the gas tank or the the sub). Bhavesh
  7. thanks pedro. i actually called some performance upgrade shops, and it sounds like there's all kinds of other issues, too, such as wiring, computers, programming, connections to the exhaust, etc. there's a lot more than i thought! so, i think i'm probably not going to do this kind of an upgrade. bhavesh
  8. that was really great! thanks for the description...i've done some of that at times on my own, but didn't really know what I was doing. sounds like something else that will be fun to practice! bhavesh
  9. Hi, I want to upgrade my 1997 Boxster engine. Does anyone know if a 2001 Boxster S engine will fit? I know I have to get the wiring and computer, but will it physically fit and work with the transmission? Thanks, Bhavesh
  10. wow, who makes that sub? what kind of drivers are those?
  11. could you describe the actual procedure on 'rev matching'? I'm not sure exactly what that is. most of the time, I switch into the gear that will most likely be appropriate for the speed I'm going....but a lot of times, for fun, I will shift into a lower gear for a harder stop thanks! bhavesh
