Interior
Product: Expandable LED Interior Kit
Manufacturer: LED Glow Lighting
Product Rating: 10/10
Purchase Date: 2012-12-03
Purchase Price: CA$30.00
Purchased From: Amazon
Purchase Rating: 10/10
Description: I wanted to add to the red light of my dash and stereo so I set the LED Glow to a steady red light even though it has more capabilities. I purchased the 9" four-piece multi-colored pack.
Install Date: 2012-12-14
Installed By: Myself
Installation Cost: CA$0.00
Installation Rating: 10/10
Comments: I was going to add-a-circuit, however I had a hard time finding an appropriate fuse. I just tapped into the glovebox light so it turns on whenever I use my headlights, which is perfect!
Exterior
Product: Splash Guards
Manufacturer: Mazda
Product Rating: 10/10
Purchase Date: 2012-04-16
Purchase Price: CA$120.00
Purchased From: Mazda
Purchase Rating: 8/10
Description: The guy who had the car before me, did not take care of this car. My wife was driving the car and all of a sudden the driver side inner fender/splash guard starts rubbing against the tire. At the time, the part wasn't available anywhere but the stealership so I bought it there.
Install Date: 2012-04-17
Installed By: Myself
Installation Cost: CA$0.00
Installation Rating: 10/10
Comments: Popped in the overpriced rivets and the splash guard was all better.
Audio
Product: DNX6190HD
Manufacturer: Kenwood
Product Rating: 10/10
Purchase Date: 2012-04-25
Purchase Price: CA$849.00
Purchased From: Crutchfield.com
Purchase Rating: 10/10
Description: This stereo/nav unit is sick as hell. Brought life to my factory speakers and is extremely user friendly. My favorite part is the blue tooth, streams crystal clear music from my phone flawlessly.
Install Date: 2012-05-06
Installed By: My Self
Installation Cost: CA$0.00
Installation Rating: 10/10
Comments: Install was a breeze with Crutchfields install kit. Took me a little while to get used to the silver casing from the original black factory stereo. I also miss seeing the time where it used to be.

Purchase Price: CA$69.99
Purchased From: Crutchfield.com
Purchase Rating: 9/10
Description: The PAC SWI-Jack brought back my steering wheel controls, and they have been sorely missed!
Install Date: 2012-12-08
Installed By: Myself
Installation Cost: CA$0.00
Installation Rating: 7/10
Comments: I had a hard time figuring out the install because they offer so many different instruction so I actually ended up calling crutchfield six months later and they had the answer right away. I was looking at the right harness:) The jack needs to be manually programmed but it's a breeze.
Product: Infinity BassLink 200 Watt Powered 10" Subwoofer
Manufacturer: Infinity
Product Rating: 10/10
Purchase Date: 2012-06-15
Purchase Price: CA$199.99
Purchased From: Crutchfield.com
Purchase Rating: 10/10
Description: I absolutely love this little sub. Not only did I have to worry about wiring a seperate amp, the unit looks so clean. I wasn't looking for a stupid amount of bass, I have been there with my custom fiberboard boxes etc. This is a perfect unit for me now that I am husband, father, student, business man. I can still rock out to all genres because this thing kicks serious ass in combination with my Kenwood head unit.
Install Date: 2012-07-22
Installed By: Myself
Installation Cost: CA$0.00
Installation Rating: 10/10
Comments: I ran the power wire right through the driver side grommet behind the battery. I ran the audio cables on the ride side of the car to avoid any static, basic stuff.
Product: Video Bypass
Manufacturer: EBay.com
Product Rating: 10/10
Purchase Date: 0-00-00
Purchase Price: CA$8.00
Purchased From: EBAY
Purchase Rating: 10/10
Description: Video bypass for my Kenwood head unit. I don't remember who made it or who sold it, Ebay only gives me a 60day purchase history. If you look on Ebay, you can see a bunch of these for sale, they advertise the little one versus the bigger one. I bought the bigger plug because I wanted it to work.
Install Date: 0-00-00
Installed By: Myself
Installation Cost: CA$0.00
Installation Rating: 10/10
Comments: I hid the bypass underneath the console to the left of the emergency brake, I grounded it to a little metal clip, right against the gearbox. The purchase came with a ghetto little printout of how to install it and the directions worked like a charm.
