    I think anyone that has the _____ to cut up the dash of a brand new car deserves serious respect.

    My car is older, and a lot cheaper to replace the whole dash (I've got a spare) so it's not such a big deal if you miss with the saw or dump resin all over it.

    The car's barely off the showroom floor and you've hacked a big hole in it.
    By the way, how's the car? They look soooo sweet. Chrysler sure can design a body. I remember several years ago , I think it was Csaba Csere (Editor of Car & Driver) that said if cars were sold on looks alone, Chrysler would dominate the market. I, myself am a GM guy, but I really like several of the new DaimlerChrysler's in production.

    So, have you already started plans for part II of the CrossfirePC?

    Keep up the good work,

    Kris

    I know what you mean Superduck. After a year and I still haven't have a gut to pop the radio bezel out of my Matrix to see if the Lilli will fit in there. I have a hard time dealing with warranttee work at the dealer (oh you blew up the engine because you swap the radio). That kind of stupid clam you know.
    BTW a 2 thumbs up for a nice and clean install + a freaking BIG GUT to breakup the brand new car for a PC install

    Thanks for the props. The replacement pieces were pretty affordable if I screwed up to bad. The car is a pretty nice out of the box rig.... $10,000 less than a Merc SLK. Same platform and made in the same plant in germany as an SLK.

    Designed by Chrysler ..... Made by Daimler.

    It has dual spark per cylinder.... like a hemi.... was a bit concerned about coil interference but no such issue happened thank God.
