I mean at that point why use Carplay at all when you can set Bluetooth up on your phone and have a holder on your dash or vent?

And just play music from your phone because apparently the factory sound is crap unless size matters

Lol.
I was so close to getting an Alpine unit to get the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto... but one day looking at my phone mounted on the vent, an inch away from the head unit and felt a bit silly. Decided maybe later.

The BRZ sound system is actually pretty good... ever played it while the engine is off? I think the audio problem is the lack of sound insulation and the interior acoustic design.

1. Dropped the rear subframe to install some PBM diff/spacer bushings. hopefully this will help axles live longer.
2. rebuilt axles w/ Redline CV grease, vented boots.
3. replace 4.1 diff with 4.3 diff from a 2017
4. rebuild coilovers w/ new bumpstops, lube bearings, etc.
5. whiteline front bumpsteer kit
6. Front camber bolts to get just a lil more grip out of the front end.

Switching from 4.1 to 4.3 is one of the best things Iíve ever done to this car, would recommend it to anyone.

Even better if its for an auto twin !
Perfect for max acceleration on our local racetracks without overrevving on the highway.

This weekend's fun:

7. Installed new Accusump
8. Changed the oil
9. New trans fluid


.........
Tonight's after-work fun is setting up scales to do alignment and corner balance.
