I'm pretty sure Spotify is integrated with WAZE now....ZERO issues with Nav, either via CarPlay or native WAZE app.

Using CarPlay, audio is played through AUX, using app - audio is played normally

so if you car came with nav and bluetooth and backup camera and the such, would you need to add any of the extra options they have on the site? I might get your thing since it's cheaper and no need to code, though they have the extra options like backup camera or microphone and stuff, is it legit plug and play? or do I have to change the wires and stuff?

Only extra options I added was CarPlay. I believe if you have Nav, you'll need the MIC splitter....EVERYTHING including OE BU camera is PnP. You'll need to transfer the green "optical cable" from OE side to provided harness as well...

Also, once installed, download bm3 Android app to head unit, log in and run your dash gauges ..

Drove back to NM to get my M Performance LSD installed as I have a relationship with Service manager and Master Tech. All my local dealers wanted 4.5 to 5.5hrs labor...a few Inde's were about the same (figured they wanted higher rate to purchase 1/2 shaft tool and wrench), I didn't want to be their guinea pig.

Did my prelim clutch break-in (20-25 figure 8's and 20-25 left/right circles). Will have a nice 530 mile drive back to AZ to complete break-in...

LSD Thoughts

Having now spent a few days of spirited twisty driving through Northern AZ, I can definitely state (as most everyone else has) the LSD is worth the $$.

As suspected (and stated by many), lateral power along with entry/exit control is FAR more predictable...adding confidence through the twisties (perhaps foolishly)

My opinion, anyone planning on exceeding 450whp MUST invest in one....whether M-Performance or 3rd party. If you plan on keeping the car, you gotta have one. . . 🍻
