    Finally build in my Lilliput LCD screen into my car :D

    And it looks awesome tbh :

    Just 1 small problem, perhaps you guys have had the same problems...

    I'm getting a small 'flickering' in dark area's, now I'm not yet sure what it is...

    Could be the monitor cable getting interferance from the car... The PC is in the back, so there's a 5-meter monitor cable attached which runs to the front...

    Could be perhaps a dirty powersource, although I left the small gray box on on the cig-lighter powersupply that came with the LCD monitor...

    Any idea where I should look to first?

    Its not 'that' bad, for some reason its only in dark area's, not in light area's, and I get a bit of distortion in the post-window, think thats the computer itself though as I had the same when I was testing the monitor in my house with another monitor cable...

    If it's stuck, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway

    Nice work, what about your controls? Did you take them off or is it still there, just hidden? How do you turn your monitor on, change settings, etc...? You have a picture of before and after?

    You have a website of your work?

    The controls have been cut off and are dangling behind the LCD-screen, the flat-cable (paper-like) that connected the buttons has been changed/extended with a piece of UDMA-66 IDE cable The soldering wasnt done by me though, as it was very small...

    Once I turn off the car, the monitor loses signal and then goes into standby mode, I still have to measure how much power it uses in standby, but doubt it'll be a lot... And I drive my car regurlarly, so wont be a problem... I hope

    Since only my computer is attached and the LCD screen always has power, I (in theory) should never have to change the screen's settings... The initial idea was to extend the cable of the buttons 'part' so I could put it in the gloves compartment, but that was impossible (at least not the entire button 'part', as its still in tact but detached from the rest of the screen body)...

    No website yet, as I forgot to make pictures during construction

    And it is indeed an Impreza, but I have no need for a head unit...

    Nice install! How about some details on how you did it.
    I have some flickering in my Xenarc also. I'm not sure what causes it because its there when the engine is off also. If I plug it into an AC source it doesn't flicker.

    Is that a Impreza WRX? STI? Regular Impreza?

    Have you test drive a EVO? What would you recommend a Impreza STI or EVO 8?

    STI all the way. I'm a big Mitsubishi fan, but the STI is simply a better car. Stock off the lot, the STI is faster too. Just don't get the blue one with gold wheels. That's heinous!

    You could try these on the power and/or video cables.

    Cool Re: Evo vs STI

    I don't know too many Evo owners that leave their car totally stock though BTW, have you driven an Evo? I've driven both, and they are different, that's all. And my Evo is certainly faster than an STI, but it isn't stock, that's for sure I will say that the STI is much more comfortable, except for in the turns due to those seats.

    I have driven both Evo and STi. I own a SVX and Galant so I have a subaru and mitsubishi.

    Between the two, I am going to pick STi since I am a FHI fan. Both are not my style but I think handleing is a lot better in STi compare to EVO. I like the EVO seats though.
