          Nice setup.
          I saw one of these cars in Egypt. Thought it was a GOLF with a missing F at first.

                    Nice - very nice. Not sure about that wing though, but I suppose that look hasn't reached saturation like it has in the West yet
                    Kinda looks similar sized to a Golf too - I suppose dropping the 'F' makes it easier to pronounce in some countries eh!
                    And yeah - what about that rubber!! That's gotta hurt!

                      thanks for the replies guys...
                      I'm sorry I forgot to mention that picture of my car was... photochopped...
                      in reality they are 195/50/15 goodyear eagle F1 (W rated), still not too shabby for an entry level car right?

                      EsKALad: I'm definitely going to do that, in phase two...

                      ramy_zohair: Egypt? I thought the GOL was only available in south America and China?

                      Black00vr63: it was custom made by a local car audio shop, costed me 350 RMB installed (around 45USD)

                      Kiriller: I'll try to upload more pictures if I could dig them out...

                          the IC is called BA3121, costs about 1 dollar, the hard part, however, is finding it in retail...
                          you can find the datasheet and wiring diagram here:

                            I think he's asking how you created the aux in for your stock head unit, how'd you find the right places to solder, etc.

                              oh, that... as I said, a friend of mine did it for me, all I know is when I plug my PC in, all FM channels become AUX, if I wanna listen to radio again, just unplug it...

                              the mini board in the picture (brown) is glued to the main board of the head unit, underneath the CD laser part...
