    good point--also, the little stuff will nickle and dime you to death,(my install started cheap-- around $750 for everything, 3 soundcards later, and volume controllers-- at least 2k...)

    some have suggested that whatever budget you would like the system to cost, double it, and you might come out just below if your lucky.


    oh, and i rocked a ipod only install for about 6 months after my aftermarket hu killed itself and while i was building/painting portions of my car. there is nothing wrong with it-- it satisfies most of the reasons most want to build a car computer--take all your music with you, and no cd's. the biggest problem i had with it was fumbling around to change the volume or tracks. a custom ipod dock would have taken care of that though...

    That right there is the quote of the millenium.

    One of the things about searching for information is to pare your query down the bare minimum keywords.
    OF course, it doesn't help that vBulletin's search functionality is craptastical on the best of days.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
