    Good work - I've got a '2 aswell - great cars!
    Are you on the IMOC list perchance?
    As you say - space is at a premium in these things :/
    Where have you put the GPS mouse for best reception without being in the way?

    Here's a sample picture, there's tons more on the website, and although it's complete, I've still got much more to do. Currently used for sat nav, movies and of course MP3s I plan to improve the interface, add more features such as cameras, security interface, obdII and better car integration.

    Nice work. I like your car. Here's a pic of my MR2 I sold about 2 years ago. That car is a lot of fun. Cheers. -m
