Gotcha... I'm on casual status so I head over that way every Monday. I'm still all stock and trying to decide what to blow my money on. I'm just hesitant with everything cause of the weather here. And the crappy roads.

I definately understand that. I've hit a couple of teeth-rattling potholes that I would have sworn bent a rim...but so far...I've been pretty lucky.
Although, now that Nebraska has finally caught up with the rest of the country and started using asphalt instead of concrete...the highways are getting quite a bit nicer to drive on.

Do you have a sound system? I went to Stereo West Audio store in omaha... and their kinda expensive but they do some good work from what i've seen.... You know anything about them or is the sound deal not your thing?

I know they are a little pricey...but I have never heard anyone complain about their installs.
I am still stock in the stereo dept...I've been doing some research...but really don't know which way I want to go. My last car had 2 10" Punch Subs in a sealed enclosure run by an 800w Kenwood 2-channel, 4 6x8" 2-ways in the front and back and some Boston Accoustic Tweeters run by a 640w 4-channel, and an Alpine head unit....
However, I don't like the way the dash looks in the 6 with the aftermarket head units so that type of set-up is out.
So....right now I'm kinda leaning toward getting a amplified sub (infinity basslink or the like) amp, and upgraded speakers...

I've been searching ebay pretty hard looking for some deals... i ended up getting 2 kicker comp vr's and 500watt amp... just to see what it sounds like. It was basically just an experiment though cause i know i want to get a Alpine mrp-m1000 and some better subs in the future. Anyways its all going to the stock HU cause i'm a cheap ass and i also dont like the look of the after market stuff. And yeah South West is expensive but they seem to be really into helping me find what i need. I think i saw you pulling out of the Bx/Line badge building road today on my way back from the gym. Your car's looking good

Got my subs completely installed yesterday... then when putting in the last bolt behind the glove box it tightened on the remote wire, and i guess shorted something out... I hate my life
