    N00b here, looking to take my ride to a shop in Los Angeles for this stuff.

    Hi everyone. Great forum you guys got here

    I would like to know if there any reputable or good shops in the Los Angeles area that will install these PCs into my car? I don't know **** about installing car stereos, let ALONE PC>car installations, so I'm looking basically to get a pretty average Windows based PC/notebook/whatever put into my car so I can play my Mp3's using Winamp.

    The reason I want to use WinAmp is because WinAmp is the only software program that is compatible with DFX. DFX is a neat little app that when used via WinAmp, transforms your music and gives a very rich and "New" sound. To my knowledge there are no casual car stereos that does this. It's simply incredible and must be heard to be believed. You can see more about *Here*

    Oh by the way this for a new car I'm getting this week, a 2002 Benz E430. Already has a pretty good stock bose system so I don't think I'm gonna **** with the speakers for the time being.

    Anyway if anyone knows any shops in Los Angeles I can take my ride to that specializes in PC>car installations please let me know Al&Ed's?....

    there might be .. we deal in the hobby side of it.. however many of us are shop owners.

    there are a few Front ends that use Winamp for the backend player, I'm not sure on which ones.. but you'll like those more than straight winamp...

    Hehe, Al&Ed's are owned seperatly. It is no longer just one company. The one by my house used to do really great work. They now suck. But the one in North San Diego county is till good.

    Peace,
