  • Audi A4 Avant 2008 Car PC

    Hello Everyone,

    Well, where to start?

    I thought about the car pc 4 years ago and wondered if it was possible..... years later, after a lot of research and studying i wrote a business related thesis about it and finally implemented it in a very expensive car, my very own Audi A4 Avant 2.0TFSI Quattro S-Line 60000 Euros of pure power and sheer elegance.

    Hope you enjoy, i love the forum, it has been very helpfull and will continue to be so in the future!!

        Some Pictures

        Here are some pictures of the whole progress form day 1.

        The whole installation took 4 days since we had to think carefully where to put every component for maximum efficiency.

        Before:


        Dismantling the bottom part of the dash:


        Dismantling the center console:


        Side view of center console:


        Chopping the brackets inside center console:


        The bracket after cutting out the excess parts:


        Sanding down the internal part of the center console in order to make the A/C control panel fit in the place of the ashtray:

          Now for some Headrests!!

          Here we are opening the headrests and removing one of the 2 internal plastic cases in order to fit the monitor bracket:


          This is the result of the space created for the in-dash monitor:


          The in-dash monitor finally fitted:



          The headrest have been fitted into position so that we can see if the viewing angle is good:


          Then we ran the monitor cables thru the seats:


          Running some tests:

            The Final Result

            After struggling for 4 days the result was very rewarding!!

            Rear View:


            Linksys Wi-Fi:


            The Voom2 black case. Ignore the keyboard and mouse cables since they will be replaced in a couple of days by RF keyboard mouse and the mess is going to clean up:


            View from rear door:

            Hope you like it. I still need to find a way to add the OBD II cable and software related. If anyone has any ideas, i would definately like to hear them!!
