  • hello from ireland!

    hi all,

    been skulking about this forum for about 3 months now, taking info and ideas. nearly finished with my install into an e39 (523i SE). All done on a budget as im a poor student, already paying €870 a year just on road tax!!

    dell dimension c521 (amd, was hanging around the house unused)
    512mb ram
    140gb SATA hdd
    dvd-rw + slot load up front dvd coming soon!
    bluetooth & wifi
    on board 5.1 sound with car 2 pc adapter for audio (quality is great!)
    7" lilliput TS in dash (trying to figure out best fabrication solution)

    using inverter for pc, and screen is wired into 12v stereo harness (all done professionally!). running win xp pro, roadrunner with bmw e36 skin (love it, thanks!), winamp, mega drive + snes emulators, gta vice city, phoco and more.

    have autoroute at the mo, just wondering if there's a better sat nav solution for europe? still undecided on a gps mouse, any tips?

    thinking of surrounding the screen with burlwood, anyone have any idea where i could get burlowood laminate (preferably adhesive) seen it used in some buses & coaches??

    excellent site btw thanks for all the info! also interested to see if there are any other irish car pc-ers out there? most people here think i'm insane!
