    Gosh - I like this. Looks fantastic. If I went this route (mini), I'd want a built in screen also. I guess I can do that with buying the car's trim kit.

    What I don't understand is integrating it with the car's amp. The car I want to buy has an external 605w, 10-speaker, Infinity Logic7 which I'm sure has at least 6 channels. It sounds really good to me when Logic7 surround is selected. I wouldn't want to dumb that down in anyway but - Not sure what I'd do. I'm such a newbie at this that I don't even know where to post/ask at this point. I posted in the newbie section but got no hits.

    We have a computer for our TV/stereo and the computer's sound card is bypassed so the Amp is providing the sound. I guess that would be the same deal right?

    Bug - have you given up on using your iPod Touch? That's what I really want. Just to use my iPhone to a dummy screen. Though IDK why AppleTV wouldn't work either.
    I'm going to study the ingredient list here.

    Thumbs up Amazing, would love to reproduce it. Any bezel details and various tips

    Purely amazing. I shall get my Cayman within a month and would really love to build such system into it.

    Do you have any advice to be careful of or required skill before thinking of such install ?

    Do you have more details about it ? Did you shaped it yourself ?
    Do you still have some drawing, dimensions, process to reproduce, ...

    Really hope to get in touch,
    Once again, really well done,
    Warm regards,

    Nice car, nice solution.

    I have an older MacMini PPC.

    There's plenty of slick skins for Ice³ - certainly worth checking out.
    MacMini in an Alfa? - Why not!

    Bezel

    Great looking install, the key is the custom bezel to match the dash. Where did you get that done?
