    You could get rid of those center vents. I doubt you are going to have anyone in the back complaining about air when they would have no room anyways. I would def suggest getting a spare part to modify, especially on an M roadster. While you are at it, you should route the power for that radar detector, maybe hardwire it with a different kind of disconnect, so the wire doesn't get in the way of your 7 inch.

    The M roadster is tiny and the engine creates so much heat that I hardly think he will have a problem heating or cooling the interior consistently.

    built-in's have the potential to look a thousand time better than a flipout. flipouts are the pussy way out just kidding.

    edit: IMO flipouts look cheap, anyway.

    edit2: and a flipout would block his a/c vents
    i agree, flipouts look cheap. i think if i do it right, or pay a custom install shop to do it right, it will look awesome.

    maybe mount your gauges(or)ac controls on the a pillar? then put the factory h/u in the glove box and there you go


    or put the h/u in your armrest-box

    What I would do: Relocate those gauges to the pillar or something, move the AC controls where the gauges were, and then you have room for an LCD in the radio/AC space.

    Hi to everybody, I'm new to this forum and I would like to install a carpc in my Jaguar(I did not want to open another topic). I did not like the sackjag install and I would like some suggestions on where I could install my monitor?
    Any help appreciated. I would like to keep my temp controls somewhere around the monitor. The new Jaguars have some nice setups, but I don't know how I could install all the buttons around the monitor, when the temp control seems to be a one piece unit(like a stereo).
