    Help with my future carputer

    I own an audi a4 2002 and plan to install a computer into the dash where my radio/cd player is.

    I am a COMPLETE newbie with cars but am good with computers. Anyway, could someone please give me a good list of parts that I will need to buy to make what I want work?

    This is the list of parts that I know I will need, I am hoping you can help me out with things I have missed, especially wires and power supplies other then the ones for the computer itself.

    Things I know I need and know how to get and make it work.


    Touch screen monitor
    DVD player (hold in glove box)
    MOBO
    Wireless keyboard mouse
    Sound card (what do I need to make it come out of my stock Audi system?
    Hard Drive
    More USB support (hold in glove box)
    Wireless Ethernet (so when I am close to my house I can transfer data)

    So what am I forgetting about? Wires?
    I plan on keeping my stock cd/radio in the glove box. How do I keep that working with my stock sound as well as my computer?

    Thanks in advance!

    This is how I want it to look like.

    Also, I do not plan on installing this in my car on my own. I will be taking it to a shop, I just need to make sure I give the shop all the parts to make it work.

    I will be putting the PC together though.

    Thanks!
