    How much have you spent so far

    Just seeing how much people are dropping in to there systems. This is what I got so far, trying to give people a good idea of what they are getting in to.
    Of course it can be done for cheaper (maybe)

    SDC - $70.00
    Inverter - $50.00
    Keyboard - $50.00
    Hard Drive (40GB Slim, installed in computer) - $60.00
    Hard Drive (20GB SLim, in external case) - $40.00
    External HD Case - $18.00
    X-10 Remote - $30.00
    FM Transmitter - $30.00
    XM PCR - $135.00 (Yes I know, I could have got a directPCR)
    Head Set - $12.00
    Mouse - $20.00
    VGA Screen - $200.00
    Cables, Switches and Connectors - $40.00
    Slot CD Drive - $10.00
    *Slot Slim DVD Drive - $65.00
    External Slim CD Enclosure - $30.00
    GPS Antenna - $75.00

    Let's see...
    I estimate that I've spent 1000 hours over the past 4 years reading MP3Car.com and building my machine. I bill myself out at $60/hr (I know, cheap) so that would come to $60,000.
    Minus hardware, coffee, and pizza expenses, of course.
