This is my first time posting. Got mine about two weeks ago. Loved the machine. I know it is also annoying to call her a machine, feel like she is my new wife
Any way, two questions now,
1) Is there a way to order and get installed a Bi-Xenon kit after delivery ?
2) Any suggestions for a DynoAudio or an alternative since I plan to upgrade the sound system in a short time.
Grats, and welcome to the forums!
There are some people installing after-market HID (xenon) lights, however, the retrofit of the "factory" lights is really really expensive. About US$4000 for just the factory lighting kit and then you have to install them.
I was really thinking about doing this, because it is one of the few features that I really wanted for the car that was not available in Canada. Some stupid representative decided that we couldn't have them here.
It is just so expensive and requires so much rewiring that I have not taken the plunge.
I believe the vortex has a post recently about someone installing US$150 (or 200) aftermarket ones, but he said that he needed to "bend" some metal harnesses to make them fit. :O That's not something I'd be willing to do...
Ah well... No cornering Bixenons for me, just yet.
Just about forgot about the audio question. According to everyone I've asked, there isn't any way to retrofit the dynaudio system in a vehicle that didn't come from the factory with it. apparently there are some major changes to the audio components, wiring, etc. Each channel is amplified, and has "better" speakers... etc etc
I think the enhanced but not-dynaudio system is good enough for me. I replaced the head unit and speakers in my trailblazer a few years back. Installed a car-puter in its place. It was the totally worst thing I have ever done to a car, and was really happy to sell it off... finally.
The stereo is a really integrated part of the electrical (especially in that truck due to the onstar thing)... My head hurts just thinking about the year and a half of suffering I went through with that upgrade. <shudder> Although, it was pretty neat running Windows XP and a 7" touch screen in the truck...
