    well, basically i do find some monitors on the E-bay. but the thing is, they have composite video input (the yellow connector that looks like audio RCA) is this any good?

    no that isn't good, you need vga,dvi or hdmi input

    can you give he width and height for the desired monitor, I can have a look at some china vendors I know

    converting the signal to vga or whatever isint hard. i am more concerned about the wuallity of the image, since it's manufactured to use only Composite...
    the dimensions, can be everything with height about 11-12cm (Actual screen) and width , 18 - 26 ... (thats why i look for 12.3 )

    the aspect ratio is wrong, it should be really wide and height should be minimal , that's what I understand from it

    yiap. this seems like the best option. and there are those : http://www.ebay.com/itm/PAIR-12-2-SU...5f0f24&vxp=mtr wich basically use the panel u posted, only with composite video input !! i suppsoe that with some major reconstruction of the dashboard, that screen would make a Bad-*** speedometer!

    NO composite video input for the monitor!
    Only VGA o HDMI.
