            i had the same question as chut.

            Great install nthai! Solara looks very clean -- the way it should look! (i love the lowered stance)

            very clean install looks like it came like that from the factory or somebody did a very $$$ install. have you had any problems with the lilliput?

            getting parts and research together

                Thanks guys for leaving a positive notes. It means a lot after spending countless of hours working on the system.

                To peeps with questions:

                * I use the software downloading directly from the I bought the tool there, ISO for Euro, Asian, Chry - and cost $122.
                * As for the Lilliput screen, I bought it from Crystar's group buy in this forum. I guess I was one of the lucky ones, I haven't had any problem with mine yet. No ghost screen, nothing weird at all.

                Btw, the USB-to_serial Deluo GPS works very well with MediaCar/ Mapppoint 04, and it works wonderfully after hibernating...

                  Do you have any day pics of the tv install? Very nice by the way. Do you ever go to RI? I see a car that looks exactly like yours in RI sometimes.

                    how difficult was it to move the head unit from the stock location?
                    Any snags or recommendations youd like to give?

                        why only the rear sway bar?

                        you'll get better handleing with both or at least the front...
                        but I bet your *** is alot tighter now though...

                        (if anyone takes that sexual you need help)
