MK4 Golf Complete Car-PC (Laptop Mobo Based)
Just finished (again) my car-pc install. Changed from a compaq to a dell mobo and also changed out the 3 cheap usb hubs for D-Links due to numerous bugs with the old system. All now working sweet as a nut, but unfortunately Ive finished it to sell the car so some lucky so and so is going to enjoy the fruits of my labour.
