    Unhappy Had a laugh today

    My corrado needs new front door speakers

    so was about to order a set of alpines of ebay

    i noticed that a charity shop were listing a set for roughly the same money - so feeling charitable i bought the set.

    they arrived today and the alpine packaging box was perfect - so i was happy something to do this weekend

    decided to open them up to see what they looked like as i have never used alpine before.

    what was inside - A SET OF SPEAKERS FROM A KIA - with S**t outputs


    YOU GOT TO LAUGH!!!!

    The fit is atrocious. Just look at the headrests on the rear seats, it looks like a GCSE textile project gone seriously wrong!
