    Thanks

    It's a 15" widescreen monitor. with vga, svideo, comoposite, PIP and remote control etc. etc.
    It's not a touch screen, as It's too far away from me to touch ! lol
    I use a Gryation mouse and KYB, although im in the middle of building a motorized 7" lilliput vga touchscreen to replace the speedo/clocks, with will also have control over the computer system
    The sub is a 10" JL W7 and it rocks !
    The dash is alcantara (spelling?) with painted silver highlights

    Tiny, that looks slick....
    Do you have bad glare with all that silver paint then....? I mean, you have alcantara which is usually used in race cars to kill glare, but you got all that silver paint too!

    The silvers not too bad, but the big stainless steel bowl's with the perspex top's that the speakers sit in are the worst ! lol

    I've got covers that sit over them if need be, but I dont really use them

    First off, nice installs on the Smarts. Tiny, is it my imagination, or does that screen really look like it blocks your view. I thought maybe it's just an illusion.

    Anyways, anyone who has successfully done a carpc deserves props. This hobby surprises me with how far across the world it reaches. The person who started this thread doesn't live too far from me. Amazing.

    With that being said, I really think a touch of tolerance should be observed on this forum. Critique is fine. Constructive suggestions even better. But attacking someone because they have a 'different' type of car then you. That's a little weak. I'll be the first to say that Smart's are not for me. Coming from America, I got a good chuckle when I first saw one and read about them, but I can also see their purpose here in Europe. In some cities, there are even special parking spaces just for Smarts. I would never buy one, but hey, to each his own. /rant

    Wow, I'm being very diplomatic today.

    I think they are cool cars. Id say it is way more smart to own one of those than it is for a hummer in the city. Cool car jabber

    I bet its hard to see at night tiny.

    At first i would like to thank you all for your comments, i really appreciate them.

    @BiGGy: Yes. The Engine has, to be exactly, 599cm³

    @T1NY W: Wow. That is some mean installation, expecially the speakers. Is there still a passenger seat, or did you remove it?

    @carpcnoobie: I totally agree with your opinion. Except, that i like the Smart and would by another one BTW: Where are you from?

    He could be, but what is so American made about a Mitsubishi?
    Or better yet, what makes a Lancer a powerhouse?
