    very nice oem intergration. A+

    What is that huge device on your dash?

    IMO id get rid of the backlit ACURA logo near the shifter.

    Do all your a/c controls etc show up on the original acura lcd down below?

      That is a car dock for my Motorola Droid attached to the windshield. It is hooked up to my carpc via USB and I also wired in an external usb port on the side of it so that I can hook up and extra peripherals I might need external HD, dvd drive, etc.

      Yeah all the a/c controls work... that is the stock display behind the Plexiglas with the Acura logo. It use to be up where the LCD is now. Regarding the back-lit logo to each there own I suppose, I just didn't like the empty space that was down there. I think that part came out pretty good.

        Props to you for the badass install!

        How much did you end up spending on all of that?

          I kind of stopped keeping track but I would say around $1,300 - $1,500

          More than I had wanted to but once that ball gets rolling
