Hi guys,

Just wanted to check a few things:

1. Can the stock radio/head unit be replaced with aftermarket? Is it connected to the security system since it has 'security' printed on the bottom right corner?

2. Can the front windshield be tinted? Just worried that it might interfere/block the rain sensors.

Note: this is for the 2008 model.

Hi desparil,

We have few members who had replaced it without issues. Though most I know have replaced it with OEM replacement like Caska.

Tinting is not an issue. But the light sensor will not be in tune to the surrounding lighting since you are filtering at least 30% of it.
My Kembara...almost anywhere also can.
