    the keyboard is from keysonic --> http://www.keysonic.de --> produkte.

    the motorized mechanism is original from the jvc (from the electronic flip/down front), easy modified for the jetta center console.

    Wow, great install.

    I hope my project end ups half as good as yours !!

    Where did you bought the aluminium trim, just for the upper ac holes in the dash.
    Here in Portugal we have great weather, lots of brunnets, party a lot,drink a lot....

    Very impressive. Dash is awsome.
    Must not get very hot where you live though. I think the XP-3000 puts off almost 70 watts of heat and the 5950 puts out 70-80ish watts. You might want to up the heatsink size on both. By the way, I think most (if not all) of the 5900 series graphics cards have thermal diodes built in so you can monitor it's temperature. It's good upto 140°C but I don't think I'd want to run it above 90°C.

    Also did you upgrade your alternator or add a battery for the setup? Do your head lights dim if you have both it and your heater on while the car is idling?

    Not degrading your system by any means, I'd love to have that setup my self, just giving some heads up, and curious about a couple things.

    very cool sig :-)
    the aluminium is original vw, from the golfr32 interieur (bought on ebay)


    @YouEatLard
    There are no problems with the heat in the housing, I has two 12cm exhausts installed
    The system takes up to operated 150 Watts, also nothing colludes itself in the no-load operation of the engine. :-)
    With the original Volkswagen battery (70ah)
    runs everything (sound with normal volume, without the engine runs) approx.. 4 hours.
    then the battery is empty... ;-)
    I inserted nevertheless a second battery(60ah) and a larger generator(from the passat w8),
    in order to have and bridge the voltage drop with the engine start a longer actual working time

    @gerard
    I say times in such a way... one can with live, its ok.
    I also a half year in such a way around drove.
    The touchscreen reflects strongly in this position and you must the contrast more highly place.
    If the display drove out diagonally, it is substantially better.

    is there any way you could make another aluminum trim piece for that type of screen?
