    Awesome install. Looks stock! Where are you mounting the docking station?

    This is a little off topic, but, for those of you that have the '04 TL, have you noticed a vibration around 40MPH? I was going to buy one and test drove two different '04's from two separate dealers and both had a vibration. Just curious...

    TIRES

    yep...unfortunately the car comes from the manufacturer with crappy tires...many people are getting the dealer to swap tires before driving them off the lot...I have the Potenzas which are the High Performance Tire option ($200) on this car...the EL-42s are even worse. Anyways, the vibration is a result of flatspotting- it will go away after a couple of miles of driving when the tires warm up.

    My next tires will definitely be something other than this model. I had W-rated tires (extremely high-perf) on my last set of 18" wheels and they never had issues with flatspotting.




    But....back on-topic....noahdib finished the install and it looks absolutely badass. I just don't want to give up my lower storage areas

    those comparments were no good for me =) Eventually if we ever get a program to read all that bus data and output to screen I will add another 7" down there or add the compartment back =)
    Good thing that is all plastic and I can buy a spare piece for $40 if i ever need to go back to stock.

    What did you end up doing to cover your stock LCD after you have moved it to the compartment? Did you fab or did you use the original plexi to cover it? Any gap afterwards? I'm interested in your mod...very nice.
