Re: Aftermarket HID kit for halogen projectors.

Hey tk, I've been thinking about ordering this kit - While I certainly had way better output with the +30 Volsa HIR2 bulbs I have been using for the last couple of years - they are definitely getting getting dimmer now and rather than replace them again, I'm interested in going HID. When you install...

Re: Share your Police Interceptor sedan pics!

These were separate incidents :mrgreen: Second pic was from a tree that literally fell on my car while I was enroute to work, at 70mph on the interstate early on morning. It fell across my car just at the bottom of the windshield. Looks better now though!

Defective Rear Window Defroster

Here's a weird one. 45 minute drive to work yesterday morning. Parked at my office, and when exiting I smelled something that smelled similar to burnt brakes. Popped the hood and checked out the wheels and engine area. Nothing out of the ordinary, no smell detected outside the car, strongest was dri...

Re: Screen burn in - fix or replace?

Are you certain that's actually burned in? Mine does this when I put the key in before I start the engine... it also "moves around". When I start it turns on and I don't see any burn in effects or anything. Like someone said, probably Microsoft's lame attempt at a screen saver.

Re: Hump under the drivers seat

Yeah - I hate this. I also used to have my left leg bent and up just under the seat on my vic. That hump is a PITA - that and the much more limited visibility. :-\

Former CVN'er here as well = once I hit 239k on my 05 Vic, I was forced to find something else... so I found my self here after buying a 14 3.5 ecoboost PI.

Hey Sterling, is that the "UJ" Paint color? Love that one - same as mine :-)

Re: Questions about finding the right Interceptor

If this helps - I see these two guys frequently listing on ebay (and actually purchased my last two Vic's and current ecoboost 14 PI from Asia Motors). These are their company websites that include VIN's and Carfax reports. http://www.asiamotorsinc.com/search/results.php http://chicagomotors.com/inv...

Re: Center Console for mounting aftermarket Headunit. Some info, Some questions.

Hey cyg, It did take a while (About 4 months) to find this console on ebay - this seller, gk1187 had quite a few console models listed when I bought mine from him. Definitely was a deal for $135 bucks! According to the Havis site on this one; Overall measurements = 9.75" high x 9' wide x 32" long (i...

Re: Center Console for mounting aftermarket Headunit. Some info, Some questions.

"I really underestimated how essential an armrest and cup holder are for long trips." OMG - No doubt about that! I picked up my car in Chicago and drove back to Virginia (about 15 hours) - without an armrest. That sucked. I ended up finding a Havis C-VS-1508-INSE on ebay for about $135 in practicall...

Rear console mounting plate (97D)

Can anyone give me a specific part number for the Rear console mounting plate (97D)? It's a wire conduit that mounts to the console plate and runs under the rear seat to the trunk. I'm mounting some amateur radios and I'd like to make this as easy as possible. Here are a couple of pics from the driv...

Re: center console for the interceptors

Try car-part.com. Found quite a few black ones listed in the $85 range. Some of these yards have pictures, some can also ship if you choose USA instead of an area (like Mid-Atlantic).

Hi GhostRider, On mine, there's a round, black plastic cap - it may or may not have an black ZIP tie on it, covering the actual area where you take the bulb out. Pop that cover off and you can easily R&R the headlight bulbs. For the driver side, as stated above, you need to remove the airbox, I thin...
