                        Tight setup, install, everything!!

                        I like the Alpine skin playing with the Alpine hu below it. Nice touch.

                          Xenarc site

                          Since everyone seems to be pm'ing me the same question, i thought i'd post the answer here.
                          Please remember that you still need someone to ship it to you from Taiwan.All I did was trace the manufacturer of Xenarc to Taiwan's GAIN Associates.
                          Here is the URL http://www.gain.com.tw

                          In my case I had a friend there who shipped it to me for free, so that explains my cost

                            Holy Crap!!! This is EXACTLY what I needed....Thanks desiz!!!!

                            I checked out your website, nice car, I like the way it looks and I love that Alpine radio. Quick question, where are the HVAC controls? Did u move them?

                            Anyways, what I am REALLY excited about is the http://www.allelectronics.com website. I needed one of these uber-RadioShack/Fry's Electronics sort of places for the last 3 months and guess what, they're a few miles from my house! Thank you thank you thank you. If I had known about these people months ago, it would have saved me at least $100 in marked up crap that I was forced to purchase from Parts Express, Radio Shack, Fry's, etc...
