2004 Jaguar X-Type - Windows 7 and Acer Aspire1 8.9" Netbook as a Donor
It took a little than expected, but here it is.
My list of components:
1. Metra Double DIN Dash Kit
2. Acer Aspire One netbook
3. Touchscreen kit
4 .USB powered hub
5. USB 6-Channel audio card
6. USB VGA converter
7. USB Bluetooth
8. 3 x phono-to-AV adapters
9. 5 channel amplifier
10. Slot load USB DVD
11. Headrest monitors
12. PCMCIA Wireless Hub
13. 12v-to-5v DC converters
14. USB GPS Module
15. USB squid hub (mini and full USB ports in ash tray)
16. Zune HD (in case I want radio besides HD Internet streaming)
17. Free Microsoft Origami Experience 2.0 front end for media, calendar, Outlook integration and free Krento application launcher
I used the netbook's 8.9 screen (which fits almost perfectly behind a modified Metra double DIN X-Type kit) and I had to put a momentary soldered from the motherboard next to the screen to suspend and resume Windows.
The only thing that make this usable is the Origami frontend. I tried a bunch of others, but I like this one from the UI perspective and it has the functionality I need.
Here are some pics of the install, Origami front end, headrests, slot DVD and router:
