    San Diego Tire Shop

    Has anyone had any good experience with custom wheel / tire shops in San Diego? I have custom 21 inch wheels on my car but discount tire won’t touch the front tires due to the load rating being higher on the 19s that came with the car. (As stated by the door placard). It’s ironic because it’s...

    Leather Seat Cleaning - Need Help!

    Ah, so actually I agree with you on the magic eraser. That’s pretty abrasive and should be done with caution. That would be last on my list of things to try, if at all. A good horse hair brush really just agitates the cleaner to help lift the stain. Curious to see if he can get this out. Keep...

    Leather Seat Cleaning - Need Help!

    He should definitely start with that but if it’s not working then he won’t have much choice but to try other methods. I thought scrubbing leather seats was insane when I first read the article but it worked.

    Leather Seat Cleaning - Need Help!

    How aggressive did you get with the scrubbing? I clean my leather with 303 multi purpose cleaner and scrub the crap out of it to get all the grease and dirt off with a scrub brush. This article was very helpful (I am not affiliated) when I was trying to figure out how to clean a leather seat...

    Model S Aftermarket Wheel Fitment/Offset Discussion

    Those will look pretty flush. My +38s in the back with 3mm spacer are equivalent to +35 and it’s pretty flush as you can see. The +32 in front is way off though and not flush at all. I’m running Michelin pilot super sports

    How to install 2way components with standard audio? Looking to install an AudioControl DSP/amp (D-4.800).

    What do you guys do for tuning? I use an iPhone app but feel like it’s not very accurate. It was showing relatively flat without me doing much of anything.

    How to install 2way components with standard audio? Looking to install an AudioControl DSP/amp (D-4.800).

    That’s a nice clean install. Probably a good call replacing the tweeters too. I remember the drivers side A-pillar was difficult for me as well. I ended up just getting really annoyed and yanking it off with a quick pull. I was to the point where it was either going to release the clip or just...

    How to install 2way components with standard audio? Looking to install an AudioControl DSP/amp (D-4.800).

    I have an Audiocontrol d6.1200. I had an installer do the wiring for round 1 in which he tapped the front inputs from the foot well but he ran the outputs back through a separate speedwire. When I installed the hertz component set up front I had to rewire it since the tweeter and woofer are now...

    How to install 2way components with standard audio? Looking to install an AudioControl DSP/amp (D-4.800).

    Round 1 of my audio upgrade was close to that actually. At first I had my amp/DSP powering the OEM speakers plus a subwoofer. That held me over for a few months and was 10x better then stock, but I couldn’t get the tweeters to sound right no matter how much I messed with the EQ. My personal...

    How to install 2way components with standard audio? Looking to install an AudioControl DSP/amp (D-4.800).

    Have you considered just getting a pair of good two way components for the front? That would likely sound much better then the LH midbass/stock tweeter combo. I opted to leave both my center channel and rear speakers alone and just concentrate on the front speakers and a subwoofer.

    Booster Seats -- Recommendations?

    Whoa, that Hi Fold seat is awesome and reasonably priced. I was never able to get the back of my high back booster flush with the seat due to the headrest. Luckily, I’m out of the harness booster phase now and the $15 cosco rise booster works great. is there some reason you need it to clear the...

    Subwoofer Options for Model S (standard Audio)

    I have the CS110LG-TW3 powered by an Audio Control d-6.1200. The whole setup is super compact. It doesn’t even take up the entire lower trunk compartment.

    Subwoofer Options for Model S (standard Audio)

    I wouldn’t be surprised if that sounded better then the NVX. Fosgate always made good stuff. But the custom NVX box will look a little cleaner. That was one of the reasons I went with the JL power wedge, it fit in the lower compartment so my trunk could stay clear.

    Subwoofer Options for Model S (standard Audio)

    The NVX kit is probably the cheapest option if all you want is more bass. I went with a 6 channel amp/dsp so I could upgrade my door speakers and power a 10 inch JL power wedge but that increases the cost quite a bit over that NVX kit.

    Show off your aftermarket wheels.

    IMO, the 20s look good when they’re dark or black with meaty tires like the car above. If your wheels are going to be silver or come with a polished lip, I think the 20s might look small, like the vehicle with the 20” LMs.
