    Sure is... It even has a push button start and starts every time.
    I just wish it had a stereo. I'm sure it was removed for weight reduction.
    I really bought it so I can take measurements for a future build. (RWD 1998 GTI)

    I appreciate the feature set of that solution, however, I think something capable of enjoyable sound reproduction would suit me better. I have another sub, head unit and amplifier at my other house. I just need to find a set of components and tweeters that fit my budget. Anything I buy for this car will exceed the KBB fair condition trade in value of the car itself.

    For now if I am driving farther than 15 minutes away I will drive the mirage to have music.
