  1. I find most people do it for aesthetics most of the time. What I don't understand is people putting wider wheels on their vehicles and having to dial in as much camber as possible just to tuck them under the car. I understand the positive effects of negative camber when road racing, but some people just take it way too far.
  2. Good call. My subaru forester just broke down this past weekend. Between the ball joints and rebuilt axle that fell apart on me, the vehicle is going to cost me a lot of overtime. Meanwhile, my spark which almost has the exact same mileage has been running really well. Only complaint is that my transmission doesn't like to shift right away around the 80 km/h mark and the radio tends to need a reboot at least once every 2 weeks.
  3. I have another year or two before I trade in my 2015 spark. I was looking into the new sparks or a sonic. How's the manual transmission on yours?
  4. I love weathertech floorliners. Ever since I bought my first set for a subaru a few years ago, I just have to have them in every car. My cousin did purchase a knock-off set off of Amazon and the quality is pretty good on them. They were also less than half the price than the weathertechs, so I might look into those next.
  5. I've been looking into this as well for my 2015. I've found that PAC Audio carries a harness that retains all the features of the vehicle when swapping out the head unit. The model # is RP5-GM41
  6. I was in the same boat as the OP when I got my spark. I found that the bottom end of the sound spectrum sucked. What I did was install a Subaru underseat subwoofer in the trunk. No need for an amplifier, it just utilizes the stock harness for the power and sound. It's a small 7" subwoofer, but if you turn the gain all the way up it puts out some decent bass.
  7. The mylink system isn't the best, truthfully. I switch between both iphone and android and the system is too glitchy for me. I plug either one of my phones into the usb port and anytime the chord moves or jiggles, it will disconnect from my phone. I've unlocked the mylink to run mirrorlink with my android phone and the system has showed me a pop-up saying that it is running low on memory. The bluetooth microphone isn't the greatest either. A lot of people on the other end say that they can barely hear me and I'm talking pretty loud. Lol. I face the microphone and yell at it sometimes so people can hear me. Not sure if there is a fix for it. I would follow what 1LoudLS suggest and get a basic model then install a nice aftermarket head unit.
  8. We had a week or so of -40c to -45c weather and I had the heater on max pretty much all the time. Coming from a '92 GMC Safari where the heat would burn your knees after a few minutes of driving, this car left me considering an additional interior heater to install. Lol.
  9. Nice! I was looking at doing the intake headers and exhaust, but not sure how it'll sound with the CVT. Really wish I got a manual transmission, but since I have to share with the family I was stuck. Lol. Was it an etune you got done?
  10. Are you able to take a photo of the headlight cutoff at night? I was thinking about doing this conversion, but don't want to blind any oncoming traffic. Wasn't sure how the reflectors will deal with the light pattern.
  11. Oh, I didn't notice it was for a 2016 model. Sorry.
  12. Here's a link to the original files from the "Mylink Unlock Project" Wiki: mylink unlock files
  13. I've managed to get mine working, but it is very choppy when I tried watching a high quality video on it. You will probably need to downsize the resolution of the video in order for it to play smoothly. You will need to find the Mylink Unlock Wiki. It has all the files needed to unlock video in motion and you can also update your software should you decide to do it.
  14. Not sure if the body is any wider than the previous models, but some of the guys on here run 17x7 + 35 as their setup.
  15. Just don't drive it hard when towing something and everything will be fine. I throw mine into low gear when towing around my lawncare equipment around town.
