Just ordered the set. Can't wait!!! I was going to order the sharkfin antenna at the same time, but I choked... Any of u guyz have that? What do u think? I'm sure there's a page in the forum on it, but I'd loose this page and have to type all over again if I went looking for it.
Thanx![/b]

I've heard the sharkfin isn't so great if you listen to the radio alot, reception is extremely poor. I put the CX-7 stubby on my 6 and it works great...

Just received mine today. I'm debating on whether to mod the rear reflectors to work w/ the brakes or w/ the turn signal. I'm concerned that w/ the rears blinking along w/ everything else it might look a little too strobe light-y. Any feedback to sway me one way or the other?

Well it looks like you confirmed it brakes have nothing to do with blinkers. So now I will confirm that I have the sidemarker blinker mod and just plugged the smoked sidemarkers in and they blink OEM without any needed modification.[/b]

so i got mines today and i quickly installed it...however, when everything was all done...my smoked sidemarkers doesn't blink when i have my turn signals on...did i do something wrong? gladly appreciate any help

Do the sidemarkers light up?

I had them light up with the bumper off but when I put the bumper back on the car they didn't light up, so after pulling the bumper off again I notice I had pulled the wire out the sidemarker plug that went to the headlight signal. Put it back in and everything worked.

Did they blink before the smoked sidemarkers were installed? If not, then you haven't done the turn signal mod. Do the mod to make them blink with the turn signals (when parking lights are off) or opposite to turn signals (when parking lights are on).

If you have done the turn signal mod then somehow you've reversed the mod by installing the smoked side markers. How this would actually happen I could not begin to fathom. If you broke a wire the sidemarkers won't work at all, not work like normal un-modded sides, because the proper turn signal mod requires cutting of the ground wire to the sides.

In another thread, he said that he never did the sidemarke blinker mod in the first place...so that could be the reason. :slap:

Yeah I read it so I will post the How to here as well.

Sidemarkers will only blink it the sidemarker mod has been done first.

I just finished doin' the side(w/mod) and tail markers and opted for the tail markers to come on with the tail lights. I actually bought some 1/4" vinyl hose from Home Depot to house the wires for a little protection. I'll post some pics after I wash her.

I think when I get my rears, I'll try to do bothe brakes and TurnSignals ... I agree that having them on with the lights may be too much... Could try to do all 3....

I have had mine on with the lights since January and love them. I like the fact that they draw attention when I am simply driving and not just changing lanes or braking. But that is just my opinion.

I have the CX-7 and while it's good for FM, it absolutely SUCKS for AM. Not good when you're heading home on a Sunday night and watch to catch MLB or NFL....

Hmmm that is odd. My AM reception definitely didn't change.
