      I downloaded it last night, still checking it out. So far so good. Are You planning on doing an XM skin? And if I send You the button code or my Streets and Trips skin could You make a screen for it to match? (When You are done with the rest of the skin, of course)

      Nice work

                          Looking good, El Camino.

                          A few suggestions -
                          • Why don't you use the Segoe font everywhere? It'd be nice to keep everything consistent.
                          • When you post screenshots, put them at the widescreen aspect ratio, so the buttons don't look pixelated.
                          • The genre buttons on the mixer screenshot look like they could have the text moved up to be more in the center.
                          • You could use the text, "Polaris", on the main menu screen to put on the iGuidance menu. Just shrink it down, and that way, they'd be the same font.
                          • Finally, the outer glow and drop shadow on the shutdown menu might look better as a dark (but still saturated) blue

                          Keep up the good work!
                          2002 Grand Am progress :
                          [] - 80%
                          ...complete setup, but still need to make the install cleaner
