    You can get those cassettes with the AUX cord sticking out
    Yeah I just bought one a couple weeks ago at London Drugs. They had 3 or 4 different brands to pick from. I think I got a Scosche. I like those better than the FM transmitters.

    There's a BT one that I have to eject and charge. I didn't want extra work but will probably buy and try it anyways.

    Or you just buy a deck like this for retro style.

    Turns out the wheels I grabbed were to good to be true. I have the dreaded 65 MPH shimmy. At least they were dirt cheap and still feel a bit safer than 20y old tires.

    I saw those. Looks like they last about 8 hours playtime. Sounds like not a lot of fun. If you could charge them while in use it would be perfect. If I can't live with fm I'll probably just deck swap.

    Is it the tires or are the wheels bent?

    Shop told me the wheels are bent. They balanced at least on the machine but apparently not on the car.

    I guess it could be the tires too. Not really sure.

    Take it to Bob. He's balanced wheels for me that 3 other shops couldn't get right.

    Bob is Thanos.

    Planning on it as soon as the weekends over!

    Phone mount fits nicely on the vent in these cars. Its got soft rubber grips so it should damage anything. Unfortunately the eyeballs were not firm enough to hold up my phone. The mount rests nicely but as soon as you throw the phone on there and start driving it kinda flops around freely. It was good enough for occasional GPS but I want to firm it up.

    I pulled the vent and disassembled it and then added some electrical tape under the OEM felt tape. The vent is very firm now and cannot be move freely which is what I want. It will probably relax over time and this is reversible by replacing with new felt tape or just getting a new eyeball vent.

    The vents pop out pretty easily. If you stick a small screw driver in through the front of the vent into the slots and twist firm and slow it will pop out the vent from the two side slips and then you can pull out by hand pretty easy. The front face was a little more difficult to remove I took my time but still ended up breaking one of the 4 clips that holds it together. It's not noticeable once reassembled though.

    FM tuner came in as well. The audio is ok I guess. I didn't play with it too long so I can probably still tune it a little better. It's a lot better than nothing and was pretty inexpensive.
