omegafiler replied to michigan2500hd's topic in Audio, Electronics, OnStar, MyLink, Intellilink & SiriusXMUsually depends on the particular stereo in the truck (there are premium variants) and what source music you're listening to. FM, XM will naturally sound worse. CD, Aux-in with high bit-rate MP3, way better. Each generation, they do get noticeably better. Although even the latest "top end" system won't compare to a descent after-market setup. But yeah, all about expectations. I recently added a small sub to mine, thinking that'd be enough. Nope. Now I've replaced most of the system. Happy now.
omegafiler replied to wayland1985's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Almost 13k and I suppose it's holding up fairly well. I think (or hope) it got most of it's mechanical issues out of the way around 4-6k with the smoke/lifter issue and other minor stuff. There have been several creaks and rattles around the cabin though. Back seat, dash, doors, etc. Dealer has surprisingly fixed a LOT of the noises, but there are still a few annoying ones hanging around that they haven't been able to track down yet. GM still has a ways to go in fixing build quality and materials. Overall, still a good truck.

omegafiler replied to ddot's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500In addition to the cabling and port, at the very least it seems like you'd also need to have some kind of update to the HU to be able to accept the new signal for USB input and provide on-screen controls. Assuming it's not a different model. But I'd love to see this available as an "upgrade" option for earlier GMT-900's. Especially considering this should have been standard when the new trucks came out.
omegafiler replied to mbrannon's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Over the past 10 years I really haven't stuck with the same colors, and certainly not black. I had Black, Silver, Silver Birch (Tan), Silver Birch again, White, and then Black. I'll go with just about anything around those particular colors depending on the vehicle and the type of paint. Just nothing similar or related to green, blue, red, purple, orange, pink, brown, or yellow. But everything else is OK.
omegafiler replied to mbrannon's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I've always cleaned my vehicles on a regular basis, at least once a week. Black may "show dirt" more often, but it's not like it's actually any less dirty than other colors, as some would like to believe. People just like being lazy and would rather hide the dirt than clean it. Doesn't work for me. I know it's there. It must be cleaned! OCD is a wonderful thing.
Yeah, I too have ordered many things from them over the years. More recently was the Nifty floor mats for the SD. Got here in about a week. The only thing that might take more than a week is something custom ordered from the manufacture that they have to make, or if it's on backlog. I've even had to return some custom ordered floor mats before and they were quite helpful, even dealing with the manufacture for you. After the manufactures suggestions didn't work, they told me to throw them away and gave me a full refund. Very nice. Hopefully you have better luck with them in the future.
omegafiler replied to Black.is's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I wet/damp towell does the trick. My leather does the same thing.. wipe it down with a wet/damp towell, it works wonders. This should always be the first option. A damp towel is the best bet, and many times works quite well. However, sometimes water just isn't enough. In these cases, do the following: Purchase some Woolite. I believe it only comes in an HE mixture now. Dilute it with water at ~10:1. If you can find regular Woolite, dilute it to about 6:1. Put the mixture in a spray bottle, and spray it on the seats. Don't saturate the hell out of them, but make sure the affected area covered. Take a towel (microfiber, cotton, terry cloth...whatever you have) and wipe the seats down. This will clean most leather seats right up. It may take a couple applications, but it works. If the stain is very persistent, try saturating a Magic Eraser in the cleaning solution. Be careful, though--using a Magic Eraser when it is too dry and/or applying too much pressure can damage the leather. After the seats are clean, there's really not much you can do to prevent this from happening again (other than sitting on a towel). Regular maintenance is your best bet to keep the seats looking good. Another thing you and your girlfriend can do is stop "sliding" in and out of the seats. Most people have a tendency to do this, especially on vehicles like trucks (because of the height of the seats). This will not only exacerbate the dye transfer problem, but cause excessive wear to the seats. Good luck Yep, what he said. I had the same "issue" with my previous Yukon and CTS, both of which had tan leather. And I've seen many various makes of vehicle with tan interior have stain issues with folks who wear jeans. I had to start telling passengers to just stop sliding in and out of the seats in my Yukon. I mean forget about the staining issue, that'll wear out the seats in no time. There are handles and steps - use them! Also using a good leather cleaner and separate conditioner did seem to help protect the leather and make it easier to clean; but it can only do so much. Tan looks great, just gotta stay on top of the cleaning. Just like you clean and protect the exterior, same goes for the interior. Oh, and yes, that's another huge reason why I went with Ebony this time. That, and it looks awesome.
omegafiler replied to MelLandry's topic in Audio, Electronics, OnStar, MyLink, Intellilink & SiriusXMYou'll just want to search around for BT hands free cell kits for various vehicles, such as the Parrot systems. You may also want to check out Costal Tech. They have a lot of stuff for the 900 series, including an adapter that easily integrates your separate BT kit (ie. Parrot) with the Onstar speaker phone system. http://www.coastaletech.com/ http://www.coastaletech.com/onstar.htm
TRUTH!? You do remember who started this thread, right??? Hah, which should automatically make this ia 1 star thread!
Stupid?.....STUPID???? How dare you call this thread stupid!!! It's Punmax's thread, the re-birth of the longest Non-reply thread in history!!! Take it back!!! I know the truth hurts, but the sooner we all accept it, the better off we'll be.
I think we should all vote this thread as 1 star. We can't dismiss the importance of the thread rating system. I mean, what if a n00b is browsing the forum, and thinks, "oh hey, this silly string thread must be really good, it's got 5 stars!." Only to find out it's the stupidest thread on the entire forum. And then they run away!
