I am only aware of 4 speakers: two at the front and two where the passenger arm rest are. I am not much of a audio person, I never have the radio on and rarely listen to music in the car. In addition, I prefer having less speakers now since they are just extra weight. :)

The red light is my security system and the toggle switch next to it is a manual head light leveler. It is an after market piece that allows me to control how high the head lights flip up. from 0%-100% however I never play with it and just have it up at 100%, I believe the previous owner liked the sleepy eyes look...?

the car also has remote keyless ignition, which is handy when I am still in the house and need to warm the car up while I am getting ready. :)

I really like what you have done with the back seat area. Nice and clean. Where did you source the material?

hey cs, I just got some carpet that matched the colour of the interior and felt nice from a hard ware shop we have in Australia called "Bunning Warehouse"
I had done the same thing in my st184, A lot of measuring and cutting and patience :)

in other news, my steering wheel was all cracked and the leather was comming off so I got a Personal Grinta Neo 330mm leather stearing wheel.
The difference between the Grinta & Grinta Neo is that the neo is made of 4 pieces of leather where as the Grinta is one continuous piece.
I am waiting for my boss kit to arrive. Already have the quick release.

I also purchased these new rims. Rota Titans, these will be my temporary rims until I get my RPF1's

that looks pretty good. I've just seen someone do it and the leather was bothering me so a cleaner set up was in order ahahha
turned out pretty good but I think I will fix it later down the track
