    Hm. I thought I read on here that streaming music on bluetooth started with the 2012 models. If that's not the case then I'd go older and replace the head unit. It annoys me that so much gets routed through the stereo though.

    The 12 HU had the update to hdd instead of cd for nav plus 20 gb music storage and pause live radio, but it definitely cant stream - I had one of the last 13 LTZs made. The 900s were not near as integrated as the k2s - you can buy adapters for everything - xm, nav, steering wheel controls, and rear camera; an aftermarket hu should get you all the new stuff. Dont go older than 11 as that is when the oil routing was improved for the AFM. I am seriously trying to buy one now, and telling the wife it would be good for a teenager even though rear visibility is horrible for someone with little driving experience (the only true thing that sucks). The rear camera, however, was much better in the avy than my 18 LT burb. Milage is 15-16 mpg. I actually want an EXT with the 6.2 - dont know if they can stream...

    Thanks for all that information. My '09 Tahoe has 220k miles on its AFM and is doing well.

    I had an '02 Z71 Avy, and my girlfriend still has her '07 LTZ. Never had much issue with the covers, although I would wipe down the rubber between the sections with armor all or silicone periodically. Rarely had a leak except a tiny bit in a real heavy rain. when the leakage occurred during the heavy rains, it was always on the right side near the tailgate on both of them.

    still driving mine till the end of april when I will be swapping some parts and driving the hoe I have full time ( in addition to the Denali xl the wife drives and the 8.1 c2500 burb I am using for a tow pig)

    the reason for the exact dates is the avy is rusting out on me and I patched it up enough to be safe through then, I have some vacation time and will be swapping during that time as the hoe was wrecked and needs some parts off the avy. but I have had the avy for about 6-8 years or so and have put about 80k on it myself and pulled/worked it much through the salt of Michigan.

    any avy specific questions I would be happy to try and answer, I am more familiar with the 02-06 versions, but my buddy has an 09 and I have become more familiar with those also.

    I wanted one my self NNBS one

    I was going to buy one but gas price were sooo high at the time I all ready started saving up for one... :) maybe a hybrid swap but it will be hard to find a drive shaft for it.. longer length = breaker bar = Destroyed rear differential


    right now there is sooo many forsale with 120k or less :D and under 9k
