    TravRoute CoPilot 2003?
    Why not get the GPS receiver that comes with that?

    I like the looks of CoPilot, it just seems a little bit expensive.

    Ah yes. The Stillen supercharger kit? I'd love to see a Z with that kit.
    But it won't be naturally aspirated anymore once you install the supercharger

    I love your system. I too have been looking at teh Xenarc touchscreens but I'm wondering how useful touching it is going to be - bearing in mind that the res is so high and the screen is so small (7"). I don't know if I'll realistically be able to select mp3s without touching all the wrong stuff!

    Was looking to see if I can find space for a 12" screen instead... but it won't be as neat.

    that's why you use specialized software that's made to use on small touchscreens

    Touche, good catch. I was spacing thinking that a Turbo is not natural, but a Super is.
    Bad mistake.
    I edited my post.

    I just got a stupid "70 in a 60" speeding ticket, and i'm gonna pay my lawyer $350 to get me out of it.
    At this rate it will be many months before I make this mod, after which I'll probably get more tickets than before. <sigh>

    That sucks. How much is a 5mph over legal limit (60 +/- 5..) ticket going for? I found the perfect location for 2 car drags, I can't wait until I get my license.. My friend and I can have some awsome fun at 1AM. The place is about 3 miles away from my house, 3/4 miles long, and 4 lanes wide, with no center devider. Once I get driving, anyone in Portland can come over and drag w/ us I'm sure most pplz will easily beat my Jetta, but its all in fun and games not betting

    Whoa, $350? That's expensive. Here, it's $70 to get a speeding ticket taken care of. You should shop around! Use that $280 you saved for future speeding tickets

    Okay, its 6/10's of a mile long, and curves off at a decently easy angle after the long part, into a ~1/2 mile 4->3 lane section, so anyone who can drive *should* be able to manage it. At 1AM I was going 90MHP in a Surburban (99, sadly only has a 250HP!!) and managed the corner with ease Next time I'll try it in my Jetta faster, but I know my dad has taken it at 120 or a bit higher in a Z3.
