The offense taken is by those who have since moved on to streaming, and things like Apple CarPlay...Your phone would charge faster if it wasn't being used for AUX though..cause AUX is using power, so its not being charged as much. Right?
And only Android still has aux/headphone jack on their phones...
Besides the iPhone model 6 (which I do have, and keep actually specifically because it does have headphone jack) and any models older than the 6 I believe.
They sell an adapter for your iphone to have headphone jack..but now you're buying/connecting more stuff. Fumbling with more cords etc.
I also think your cars CD player is much easier to navigate and use while driving compared to a phone. Switching songs with steering wheel controls for instance, instead of picking up your phone. Its not exactly legal to be looking at your phone while driving either.
And you don't have to use your phones memory/HD space to upload songs. Not to mention not everyone has a phone with enough memory to upload many songs. (Just IMO)
This post is intended to add to the conversation, and share my opinion and experience of reasons I and others still use CD's. I am not trying to get anybody to change their music listening methods. No offense should be taken by anybody. Please.
If you don't drive it through rain or standing water, you can just dry it off with a fresh towel after the storm. Or, you can do like I do and only wash your car in the rain. It saves a bunch of time rinsing and drying. That's probably what I'll do today, actually.Took five minutes to clean up a couple of dirty spots on the car… two hours later, my “touch up” had turned into a full wash and wax. Then, took it to Quiver Pond in Old Forge, NY for its mandatory post-wash photo shoot.
Of course, the next three days will be all rain and wind. Sigh. Clean finish comes, clean finish goes.
Thats actually really good to know. I didn't know about the 3rd brake light law. And after a little research I have read a little bit more about it and learned a few things I didn't know before.The law states that the third eye brakelight cannot be dimmed by tinting.
Also, tinting might impact the efficacy of, or be affected by, the defroster grid in the rear glass.
So in those photos, which part of the back window is tinted - around the edges, or in the middle? Cannot tell by photosThats actually really good to know. I didn't know about the 3rd brake light law. And after a little research I have read a little bit more about it and learned a few things I didn't know before.
Luckily most of my driving with current car has been no cold weather. So, no defrost for me.
I have 5% tint on all windows except windshield (no tint) and I've not had any problems or any warnings. That is my experience, Others experience may differ from mine. The car has been driven in IL, CA, NV, OH, IN, WV. PA.
Heres pictures of my car. Sorry its a little dirty...wash is tomorrow afternoon.

I'm definitely not condoning breaking the law. Several of my family members work on the prosecution/justice side of the court. I was raised to respect the law.
My tint shop did not inform me of such a law. And it was a reputable, well known shop. I did not know the law before seeing this today.
I definitely think this law and information should be taken into consideration when somebody thinks about tinting the rear window. Especially if you live in a cold climate where defrost is needed.
New Tires Tuesday!Got new tires again. The BFG G-Force Comp 2 A/S Plus I just bought had build issues. So Michelin moved me up to the Pilot Sport All Season 4 for FREE. I only had to pay the installation cost.
Kudos to Michelin for the excellent customer service. Especially considering when I had the premature cracking along the beads on my Goodyear Eagle Sport A/S, I had to fight tooth and nail with Goodyear for hours just to get them prorated.
