It's the perfect LCD (well, except that it's 6.5" and not 7" - doh!).

    Here are a few more pictures of it with direct sunlight on the display:
    Hard angle with sunlight
    Straight on, direct sunlight on the display pic 1
    Direct sunlight, straight on view

    No Xenarc or Liliput can provide clarity, brightness or angle like this.

    The drawbacks of course, are that they are much more expensive and difficult to install.
    Hmmm... I'm interested. How much? VGA? Touchscreen?

    [Edit]: Auto-on? VGA? Native Rez?

    Also would help getting the size of the screen, etc.

    And last question: why are so many people putting carputers into crap cars

    Since it's 95, I tend to believe it...The comment was made in jest anyway. However, I know many people believe that new is better & everyone has different tastes...

    Yeh, I know those types of people

    My car cost my grandma $7200 AFTER taxes, so it was $6400, that's $100 below KBB value The 97s with OBDII and the new front and rear ends can easily be found for under $12k.

    What are you talking about? The SC300/400 is one of the only Lexus Vehicles that has knobs for AC (for selecting auto temp setting). The rest is all digital, so digital fan speed, temperature, vent select, etc.

    Lexus owners: so easy to get them to rise to the bait. But i do like those knobs though - really hate my shiny boring ones.

    EDIT: i think they have an inferiority complex because there cars are just as good as the German opposition but somehow just lack the class
