I did a cost comparison a couple of years ago between a MyLink conversion and aftermarket PAC. It was about $1500 versus $600. I think the PAC unit is even cheaper now and some people really like...

I’d say no matter what brand you get, try to get wireless CarPlay if you’re an Apple IOS person. The new IOS 13 made some major improvements and I’d love to have it wireless now.

Hint: The taillights/turn signals are a pain in the butt. I tried resistors but didn’t feel comfortable with how hot they got. Just wasn’t worth the grief so I’m back to non-LED.

Personally I’d buy the Challenger over the current Mustang at this point. The Ford is just a weird looking car to me and I haven’t had a sunroof-less car in decades, which the Mustang doesn’t offer.

^^^Ditto!

Iím assuming the Camaro is paid off. If you have regrets youíll basically have to start all over with a used Camaro that you have no idea of how it was maintained.

First Real Detail

I will NEVER buy another black car. Spent two days fixing chips, swirls and scratches. To make it worse, I practiced on my other car which is also black.
