    Noob and his e-class!!!

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOB in the house!

    Right people I need some help…….
    Ive got a Mercedes e-class and im working on getting the things together to install in my car.
    Let me start with what I feel I need to get, and if you guys have any inputs that would be greatly appreciated.

    First off ive decided to go for a mac mini (core duo) I understand that there isn’t as many options as the mini itx pc's but for the car I would prefer to run a mac… and my minds made up!
    Im adding a Miglia TVmini with EyeTV 2.0 – DTT, And im working on getting a shark fin arial to go with this.

    Power supply: P1900 from carnetix

    The screen : K500 - 7" InDash VGA Touchscreen from car tft http://www.cartft.com/catalog/il/629

    Im also getting some rear head rest screens at a later stage

    Sound system: Kicker 15" square L7 sub and kicker DX700 amp and power cap.

    Nintendo Game Cube with wireless controllers……. Yeh ive heard it all before xbox playstation….. whatever man. As a multiplayer system there isn’t anything out there that can touch the playability of game cube!

    I will add some links soon for photos of the car and where everything will (hopefully) go

    The major problem for me is installation! I haven’t got the slightest idea on taking my car apart. well i kinda doo but its putting it back properly that worries me!
    I guess I could spend an eternity trying to get this installed but Ide rather get a professional to do this for me.

    I live in London (England) and im wondering if anyone knows a company that can install all of this.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I think no one replied because you have an E-Class, so you can afford to find out yourself?

    Other than asking for someone to install it, I didnt even see a question in your post.

    A 2k1 e-class is cheap now so maybe he can't afford to find out himself. I would help but I know nothing about mercedes let alone e-class except its funny looking headlights

    There is a guy in this forum (diver) that is over in England (i'm not familar enough with UK geography to know how far he is from you, but then us Yanks are willing to make 12 hour roundtrip drives in a single day ) that is installing a Mini.

    Really your tough bit will be doing the wiring and placement which are both very vehicle and taste specific.

    We can help with issues directly related to the installation of the Mini, but as far as how to best tear down your car you'll have to find somewhere that is Merc specific to get the best help.

    Besides, if there are no left over parts after an install then you've obviously done something wrong
