I want one of these but I am not sure if
- does one really need an expensive Carnetix PSU. Or does the basic configuration (w/o) work when put on cigarette lighter
- can the wifi antenna be detached in order to hide the box
any experience with this?

Yes, you should search... and Yes, It has been covered before!
Read the FAQ!
When powering a system in your car, save yourself the headache and do it right. the Carnetix will make it easy to power the PC and control startup & shutdown.
I think a Carnetix P1900 would be adequate for this unit, saving you a few bucks.
This is where you should contact the vendor (mp3car.com) for assistance.
Good luck with that.
Yes. You can see the antenna detached in te last photo in the link you provided.- can the wifi antenna be detached in order to hide the box
