                Awesome! I thought you didn't have clear front repeaters, and I didn't think you have xenon headlights? The trunk looks as clean as it can be. You really should think about moulding the Xenarc in dash...The Passat is not only a good looking car, but a computer friendly one as well...Nice job!

                    Looks good, damn i wish i had soemwhere to put my PC like that!

                    how is that P3 500 going?

                      you wouldn't belive, but it's actually pretty good. I thought i will be suffering from "oomphness" but not that bad. It's slow on boot (i didn't measure it yet) but once it's in there, it's ok. My only problem right now i that i have to go to the back when turning it on. The opus is acting up, or maybe i wired it wrong. BC when i plug it in it automaticly turns on, even if the is off. I plugged a lead from the back of the stereo, that tells the AMP when to turn on. so i think it should be like whenever i turn on the stereo the amp and the pc turns on, and the same to off. Anoter thing is, that when i shut it down, XP sas it's safe to turn off the pc now, and nuttin happens. any solutions?

                        As for the problem, is the bios power management set right?

                          I'll check that... another problem. with the hitty roads around here and all the bumps, the videocard slides out of the AGP slot. have to find a way to mount it there. maybe ill se some god ol' Priority tape...

                            Did you wedge the stock Xenarc stand in the AC control?
