    If you worry about vibrations, get hhd from laptop with lower rpm.

    how can i connect the audio from PC
    Get aux in connector for your head unit if you have cd-changer, if not this one and connect it to your sound card.

    I never thought that Opel is available in Turkey ;d

    Ok....I didnt make it clear. I meant that Opel is not that well known car like lets say: VW, so they would not sell it that far.
    To give you some examples: i never saw one in us (maybe there are some imported, but problably really rear)
    But, lets go back to the topic.

    The old MK3 Vauxhall Astra/Opel Kadette/whatever it was called was also available in the U.S. as the Pontiac Le Mans....
    I don't know about any other generations of the car though...All under GM.
    Oh yeah, Daewoo bought the rights to the MK3 and retooled the panels and sold it as something else- can't remember what now.
    Sorry for going off-topic

    Its all up to you how you place hhd. Probably most of the ppl here would recommend you to put it horizontally. You can experiment putting it vertically, if it wont crash or make any extraordinary noises then you can keep it this way.
    Laptop hdd would be more shock resistant than a regular hard drive.

    btw: whats that seat belt behind, on the ceiling for(from the pic)?
