driving my rear wheel drive Lexus IS200 from Saffron Walden to Ashdon,
camera is a FujiFilm S2000HD hooked up to the rear central headrest with a

BMW parked at the bottom of a hill, this got stuck on the most shallow
Ok, I wasnt the fastest driver but I was controlled, safe & got to my
destinations, I know there are many of you that could do a better job, all
I can say is Meh!
Winter tyres, well worth the purchase!

socket in less than 2 min.

One thing I forget to mention is that if your are replacing OEM head unit
with After-market unit, you must bypass the OEM amplifier located behind
the glove box using a bypass cable (available from the likes of eBay).
Removing is difficult due to its location but its better if you do, so that
you can reduce weight and easier to access cabling.
