I Have a Couple Questions..

Is there anyway that I can get Ipod integration on my 06 without buying a new radio? I want to keep the stock look..

Where can I find a shorty antenna for my 06?

oh and I'm looking to get the car in best possible running condition.. I plan on doing a oil change, spark plugs, fuel filter, sea foam, etc.. What else do you recommend?

I have a ss/sc btw

thanks in advanced

You can buy some kind of adapter for the Ipod at most audio places or Best buy, do not know how well they work though.

When you do the oil change put in a bottle of Engine Flush, its in a silver plastic bottle inthe oil section, to flush out any accumulated gunk.

Depending on mileage, a coolant flush and transmission service couldn't hurt.

I would not do the seafoam unless you have a strong need to clean out your engine, like it has problems.

Seafoam FTW! But you don't really need to do it until you hit like 75 or 100k, and then every 50k miles after that. Great stuff.

You think seafoam still has the same benefit now that everyone is running at least E10, along with the regular detergents found in fuel?
