    Thumbs down No Question, But note on Aiwa CDC-MP3

    Well, I got the car on the road today. My god it's WICKED fast! Have a feeling I'm gonna have some fun with this one. Gonna get a Hypertech Power Programer III for it also, get some stiff shifts and boost the power..

    Anyway, I got off track. For those of you looking for a "factory" MP3 CD deck, I can say now that what I heard about it skipping is true. Now bare with me, it's not too too bad, BUT.. On sharp bumps it does skip.. Takes about a second or two to pick up after it skips.

    How often? Not too bad, just on the sharp ones. Of the few hours I was out driving, at speeds of 50 to 90, it only skipped 3 times or so.

    Disclaimer: Driving fast is bad.. Bad bad bad.. Please don't try this at home..

    I was going to get that Aiwa, but since I live in Europe, the frequency range of the fm receiver do not match, and that put me off.

    I sure am glad that I did not buy it, otherwise it would be skipping like every 10 seconds, considering the state of the Maltese roads !!

    I was really hard pressed about going with the Aiwa but I'm glad I didn't. I had read more bad than good about it and hey, how can you beat 80GB(only about 20G used so far<g> ) in one unit! :-))))))))))

    But good luck with it, and the car, man.

    I know... I was dissapointed. Though when I started this project I never dreamed of having a comp in the car..

    Hurm.. Is it hard to get radio tuned in through the factory antena to an All-In-Wonder card? If not, I may just ditch the Aiwa and go full computer.. Thoughts?
