  • 2004 VW GTi VR6

    I've had it for about about 2 months now, was going to wait to post pics in the spring when the car looks a little more presentable.. but I was playing around with my camera today and decided to snap some pics..

    quick rundown before anyone asks ( i spared the details ):

    -2.5 Celeron CPU
    -Asus xSeries motherboard
    -512 RAM
    -80gig HD
    -7 USB 2.0 ports (4 in the glove compartment and 3 on mini tower )
    -10/100 network card
    -Mini Tower 400w power supply
    -Xenarc 7" TFT LCD Touch Screen ( molded into dash )
    -Sony XM-5150GSX 880w amp
    -400 watt power inverter
    -wireless keyboard
    -wireless pointing device
    -yadda yadda..

    perfect setup for mp3s, divx movies, dvd rips and navigation..

    excuse the Audi skin.. color scheme is the best.. i'm working on a VW skin =)


    The molding and install was done by a friend of mine who opened up his own tuning shop.. here is his information:

      I REALLY like the way you dressed up your trunk, looks nice. Give us some daytime pics of the screen. From the night shots, it looks like it integrated well with the dash.

                      Nice install very cool and specially the pointing device where did you get it and how much?


                      • #12
                        Yes, really nice. Ionno if you looked into this, but you may wanna look into the VW factory GPS system to see how the manufacture integrated the Gps receiver so you get more a factory/hidden look - that is, if thats what you want.

                            I would really like to see some daytime pics to see how the screen was molded in there.

                              The install looks really stock. Your friend did a great job of molding the bezel. I also like the clean case install and the cable management.

                              Switch to an Opus and you'll have a really slick startup/shutdown feature added to it!
