1991 Acura NSX: As Good As New/Old
August 01, 2012
I was in Canada last week and didn't realize my voicemail didn't work up there until Monday. As such, I missed Santa Monica Car Sound's phone call informing me that our NSX's stereo had been repaired and ready to re-install.
I dropped off the NSX this morning and Freddie quickly got to work. When I picked it up, not only had the output been repaired to fix our whole lack of sound problem, but all the head unit's lights once again worked (photos after the jump). I completely forgot to ask them about that. Mark will be driving the NSX tonight so he can report whether they corrected (as asked) the Phil Collins-eating tape deck.
The total repair cost was $555, including $300 for the outsourced repair and $225 for Santa Monica Car Sound's efforts in diagnosing the problem, removing the unit and re-installing it. This was pricey, but given our desire to maintain the clean-look of the integrated factory head unit, it was the price of doing business. And for those of you who'd rather have an aftermarket unit with LED swimming dolphin graphics and chiclet buttons, good for you.
