Know anything about LCI?

Post by Zack » Thu Dec 10, 2015 9:13 pm

Was looking into replacing my Aux input with a USB Aux. Turns out I can't. My car, Samer said, is an LCI. 2010 models ended production on July of 2010. The 2011 models began September 2010. Mine was built right in the middle, August 2010. So supposedly there are things missing during this time that prevent me from upgrading to the USB aux input. So along with that I have the facelifted exterior, black center stack and steering wheel trim, retuned suspension, N16 engine, other improvements, LED brake lights, and not sure what else.

Does anyone else have one of these weird mid-cycle models or could tell me more about what was changed? I'm sure this information is available on other forums but I found those other forums irritating to search through since it seemed to be mostly conjecture.
