Yup, better for vision at night. If the wife needs to hunt for something in her purse it doesn't wash out my vision or blind me. Trunk and glove box are also red, so are vanity lights, because also the red looks cool.
I've been looking at the DeAutoKey color change set for a similar reason - I'd like to do some of the interiors with Green to help with visibility without impacting vision. Feels a little blasphemous with how all-in the GTI is on red highlights though.
Yeah, I saw on that Amazon link it has a full 1080p display. Even with the smaller display on the RCD330, if it was 1080p it would not be nearly as bad honestly.
I use Android Auto every drive, but don't see why it could not be replaced with a mobile hotspot powering the head-unit.
At the time I was happy to be getting an OEM solution, but you've got me second guessing myself and wondering if I wanna buy one of these...
I run a dash cam and always hated that all of the options have a screen visible, looks like this head unit takes a USB Camera input as a dash cam; meaning no more screen to hide in my interior behind my rear-view mirror.
’Gentlemen put your hands together for HILDI’Finally got around to finding the fuse for the interior lights, confirmed it was blown causing my lack of interior lights after installing new LEDs.
That's sexy right there......
I've really been dragging ass on getting a dashcam. I remember liking BlackVue cams when I did some looking around earlier in the year.
Really debating moving to Unitronic from GIAC. How's the powerband feel on the 'ol butt dyno? GIAC feels a bit peaky and like an on-switch.Finally flashed my car for Uni Stage 1 today. Pleasant surprise, it cost me a grand total of $150 (CAD). Turns out first owner had flashed 1+ and second owner had gone back to stock, so I just needed to pay ownership transfer
Honestly the Unitronic Stage 1 tune feels like how the car should have come stock. The power delivery is so smooth through the band. I especially notice the smoothness at lower RPM and when coming off throttle; used to find the car would lurch if I was too aggressive coming off throttle. Mind you I've driven all of 30-40 minutes total with it at this point, but really happy. Is it bad I'm already itching for more though?
E blends and W/M won't come for a very long time, I'm not too worried about that yet. I don't even plan on going K04 anytime soon. Well, before my K03 goes, that is.I thought Uni was like VTEC kicked in or something. I liked it tho. If you are ever going to consider E blends or W/M then might want to consider a more custom route. I will eventually get a AP and go Stratified or Sneaky to extract some more power and go W/M tuning.
