    Mp3Car.com Building Show Car. Ideas Please?

    We are building a demo car for the pacific coast to show off our parts. We have a ~60k dollar budget. This budget must include all mods including speakers, computers and creative paint.

    This is not designed to be a performance vehicle.

    It could be any type of car. This car will get a lot of publicity.

    Bonus Ideas:
    No Std. Navigation on base car model.
    BMW base /w mods
    Not a stale design
    New, fresh and trendy car.

    i'd go with a convertible m3. cdrskull's is nice (hehe, maybe get him to make the LCD bezel). It will allow users to see inside from all angles

    I say use my car so you don't have to buy one but
    seriously whichever car it is the computer should be more
    integrated into the car so it isn't some glorified MP3 player, it
    can do much much more

    A convertible is they way to go I think too.

    Too bad you can't have the 307 CC Pug.

    What about the 350Z? A screen in that dash is easy and looks amazing...
    Or a Honda S2000...

    agreed, make sure to have the radio controls on the steering wheel integrated. Bluetooth and phone is a must. (of course if your doing demos).

    Thanks for the sugestion. We looked at that. Our thoughts on that car were:
    "stale" older design
    paying a lot for performance and not a lot of cash left for mods.

    Roadsters have been ruled out due to the lack of function rear headrest displays.
