In this blog entry, I'm updating my ride, Proton Waja 1.6 4G18(A). This is the 6th update.

Why I choose this player?
Look at this photo above. As you can see the Most of Alpine backlit is RED. Same colour as the "Dash meters". At first, I wanted to buy the Pioneer DEH-4350UB with "ALL RED" Backlights and costs the same (different shop). Unfortunately, the Pioneer needs "Specific" USB Cable to connect to IPOD. This Alpine CDE-121 on the other hand NOT ONLY supports Any Ipod/Iphone cable, it Charges them too.
Here are more photos:
Other than the NEW Alpine CDE-121 Head Unit, the rest of the Speakers (4 speakers+2 tweeters) were ALL STOCK CLARION components. The result? Sounds Not bad, quite decent in fact.
Without further ado, let's proceed to logbook:
