        Nice car, nice computer

        Just wondering, have you had any problems with the police pulling you over and looking at your LCD?

              Awesome. It'd obviously look nicer with the screen integrated into the dash but I'm assuming you don't wanna do that for warranty/resale?

              Any plans to mod the car? I'm gonna have to get one when I finish uni.

                      yeah screen is not biult into the dash...as its just too nice to go and wreck. The whole system is installed in a totally non intrusive way. In about ten minutes, the whole system can be "uninstalled" and you wouldnt know it was ever there. sub box is sittin in the boot with two brackets holding it in, but no screws into the cars body were used. PC itself is bolted into two holes in the dash sub chassis that were already there, screen is held onto dash with double sided tape! and DVD drive and custom face plate is held in with two screws into the plastic, but you cant see them. If taken out you cant see any evidence. Resale value is a concern so yeah, thats why i did that.

                      No plans to mod the car yet its still under warranty.
                      Plans ARE to save up a heap of cash, and throw a APS stage III upgrade kit at it in about a year or so. Costs 9k and reaps about 390kw!!

                            stimps, you're a bastard.
                            love the car. much nicer than the vl turbo.
                            (was talking to you on boostcruising.com)

                            mind if i ask you questions from time to time?
                            i'm currently installing a carpc, and have quite a few options (have a laptop, and also about 4 mobo's lying abouts.....)

                              doubtful considering that americans are the ones that invented the car, so therefore we are the ones with the steering wheel on the right side. also if most countries with cars have it on the left side, and only a few british ***** countries have it on the right i think we can all see who is worng here

                              anyways, nice nice car, and nice system. the car resembles a mustang, is this what it would equate to in the states?
