    I decided to just get a new GPS unit. I found this nice USB one that has a hookup for an external antenna and was curious if you guys know of any others that are similar and cheaper or perform better for about the same? It's based on the same chipset of the CF card one I have.

    Looks like I'm likely getting a 2002 VW Passat 4-Motion GLX Wagon. Getting a pretty good deal on it as it needs a few things on the body which is fine by me. So since I have a 98 Passat Wagon now I'm pretty familiar with the space inside it. The nice thing is this is a newer model that has a double-din opening already so I don't have to do any trickery to get anything in there.

    Updated the list a bit more, someone pointed me to some headrest mountable LCD's. Also got some sound dampening stuff in there. Probably another week or so I'll start ordering some parts after I pick up the car next week.

    Well going a different route on speakers. I picked up some drivers for a nice price today, well will be sending off the money on Wednesday. They are Seas Lotus drivers.

    qty 2 - RT27F tweeters
    qty 2 - RW165/1 woofers

    These normally are like 1100 for the set but I got them for 525 shipped gently used. I'm going to run them active and I'm not sure if I'll keep them 2 way or throw in a small mid (3" maybe I have to see if I can fit anything first) to make it a 3 way setup.

    Also I got a DLS A3 Dual Mono amp. It'll likely be used for my sub. I have a line on 2 Focal 11" subs, or I may go with a 10"-12" JBL GTI MKII sub as a lot of people rave about the SQ and efficiency.
