    V2 up and running now - I am currently changing all the Win XP boot sceens etc so the machine looks more intergrated when starting. Next on the cards is WIFI and Bluetooth so it works with my mobile phone - after that I am upgrading the hardware in the summer.

    Removable was the whole aim - both adhoc ie the screen when parking and also so there are no marks or holes on the dash etc when its removed ( I hate that ).

    Thanks

    Probably not an american equivalent unless your talking about engine style I personally think they look sorta like BMW's but its not really an equivalent, they are nice cars tho. Great Install! Im loving the strap down idea.

    I think that was it.... any interia shots ? May be an SRI equivilent ? I'll know it when I see it because the door handles and speakers are the same - the dash is diffrent though and there a few other bits as well.
