      Nice job. There are a couple of xB's posted here. I love the look of those cars, noticed you have an automatic, are they as gutless as I here?

        Not really. I am an ASE Master Tech and I drive alot of cars and it is not bad. I have added the mod to the IAT sensor and that helped a bunch, but who can argue with 30+ mpg?

          I still think they are really cool. my two girls hate them, too boxy. I keep threating to get one and make them ride to school in it.

          have you elimanated th headunit all together or just move it?

            I eliminated it. My 14 yo daughter hates it also, that is why I had to tint the windows so she would ride in it. We like it so much that we bought 2 at the same time. My wife drives a Blue Onyx one. The funny thing is that I am a Youth Pastor and all the other young people in our church LOVE it!!! Dad is never cool enough I guess.

                Thats funny! My girls are 14 and 13 also. Odd part is they have no problem riding in my dodge minvan!

                I really like the color of yours. I've seen a few of the yellow one's but I'm not sure I could go that far.

                      I have an 8" monitor so it fits pretty well. I disassembled the monitor and marked up the bezel and went at it with a Dremel and air tools. I then used a product called plastic weld that is an epoxy and plastic glue in one.

                      Yes I go on there and posted pics of the car in the sound system section to see what the non computer geeks think about a PC in an Xb.
