Re: 2015 Soul EV: My Battery Replacement Story

So, I just spoke to the dealer, and the guy that answered the phone was the guy that I was dealing with yesterday (really nice guy). He agrees that the data for my car is from a report from roughly 1 month ago / wrong car / wrong year / wrong VIN etc... which kind of sucks (not the end of the world...

Cheap speaker replacements (wrecking yard) ?

I'm the last thing from a car guy, but am a bit annoyed with the quality of the audio (base audio package I assume, as there is no 'harman kardon' or 'inifiny' logos on anything). Anyhow, given that I'm a bit of a cheap ass when it comes to this sort of thing, I was thinking of checking wrecking yar...
