    Here is an interesting review

    Its not really a MP3CAR....they just mounted a factor kenwood, which doesn't even look good in it. However I do like the interior of the car....looks like my celica!

    Yeah and they talk about it like its kind of a big deal... and just bcos it has a MP3 player in it it cost so much more ...as they pointing out only the mp3 player cost $2000. Man for that price we could build two full on car pcs with LCD screen +DVD +GPS and everything... Those guys need to catch up on time feels like they still living in 90s.

    Remember, it has also been tuned by Racing Beat, so you're paying for those extra "speed" parts...
