Hello everyone. I have just purchased a 2001 BMW 325IT Wagon to customize and I am considering going the carputer route instead of the normal Banging stereo system. Want to have a Banging carputer system.

If anyone has any notes that will help I am open to all suggestions, leads to posts that will help. New to the car computer world.

I would like to install a system that will include:

a Navigation system
software that willmonitor car's engine system
windows XP - (have vista, but unhappy with it)
want to run my ipod, and play dvd'
ability to run through amplifier
wifi capability

if anyone has done their BMW would love to see

Hope to hear all suggestions
