    That's probably going to make for the easiest installation, although I doubt it would do well in any crash testing.


    Here's another idea for you:

    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    The Firebird III with the gasoline turbine engine!

    I don't know about acoustics but my legacy 2002 sedan has a 3 din space

    While my grand cherokee 2000 has a 1.5 din so ... It sucks for head unit space!

    My main concern is the display; The rest is pretty much the same for all cars so.....

    Right now Im looking at a 2005 RENAULT Megane SEDAN LUXE DYNAMIQUE

    A Renault Migraine? It gets that name for a reason!

    A mate's recent email included...
    ... not about the French build quality.
    Please note in the real world PSA (Peugeot and Citroen) is going the way of Saab and British Leyland).
    Have those morons never realised why you can't get French or Italian cars in the US apart from specialist and the Fiat 500 (which won't last, already quality issues).
    Yet the Mini sells and sells over there.
    I think the attached picture tells the whole story, read the part under "Snap-Off".
    Remember we call French cars "CRAP".... Citroen Renault and Peugeot.
    And his pic...

    Though his comments may seem mechanical, he is a major and esteemed contributor to another car electrical forum and he has often commented similarly on their electrics, in fact - many Euro car electrics.

    I too have been amazed at the electrics in recent French (and similar) cars I have seen at wreckers (aka auto salvage yards). I sill see the odd ceramic fuse (Alfa), but even MAXI fuses are not uncommon (Lemons & Pugs). But then again, I am used to Jap cars.


    Though this reply is somewhat more of a dig, it suggests consideration of the vehicle's electrics. How easy is it to intercept or add to?
    And if you want a dual battery (which is common for PCs etc) or need to upgrade the alternator (though that's more for big audio etc, not PCs)...
