Nice pics, the first one is my favorite. I respect the shoe but just not my cup o' tea.

Lol that reminds me of this time I saw an ad on Craigslist, I wish I could still find it, it's probably gone now. But anyways it was an e36 318i and the guy advertised "get the best from Europe with this British Motor Works car." I was literally laughing and crying simultaneously. I really hope someone else was making the ad other than the owner, because they said they owned it for 3 years. Could you imagine driving a car around for 3 years and not knowing the origin country at all?

Jesse and Derek, you guys have so much to learn.

EDIT:

I prefer to compare them to the hat on a UAP NAPA truck.

not to get off subject but the shoe reminds me of the westmoreland built rabbits. True German enthusiast don't respect them the same way as German built. I am one to think out of the box my other German car is american built. 1979 VW rabbit.

Why is your amp sitting on the battery??? I placed my amp on the drivers side and have a single 12in sub wedged under the deck behind the rear seat. but then I also have the 10 speaker surround factory.

Thats a Kinetik high output battery . The amp is the Fosgate on the back of the box with the 0 gauge wire . Winter traction all the way baby. . It's like a 80-90lb setup which I figured wouldn't be too much for my over-engineered car. I tried to put most of the magnet weight towards the front of the trunk though
Here is a pic from the front... built the box myself. Yes i cleaned up the wiring and it is further forward now. Carpet matches the trunk.

I'm very local to the plant. We had an oktoberfest euro car show there this past year. It was cool to see some of the old rabbits where they were made

in the bad parts of milwaukee, people will get like neon green metallic maaco paint jobs that start peeling in a month and put the chromest of chrome wheels on their cars and their always huge. They do it to the worst cars though, like buick riviera's, jaguar s types, and dodge magnums. They always have too loud subs that don't even sound good they just rattle. Like I'm all for modified cars but their taste is soo bad. It's always purple and green paint jobs. I can understand a clean vw with QUALITY paint, and chrome bbs's and subs, but they put like a 300$ paint job, 200$ wheels, and a stolen stereo set up on cars that aren't even worth modifying. It's hilarious. Funniest part is when they nod at you at a red light and you just shake your head. Also I just don't listen to much rap anymore so I don't have any need for subwoofers

I have one 10 in my trunk that takes up hardly any space. I have it turned down to about 10% of what It could be. Sounds like a newer cars bass....just makes everything sound better.
