    Tight setup, install, everything!!

    I like the Alpine skin playing with the Alpine hu below it. Nice touch.

    Xenarc site

    Since everyone seems to be pm'ing me the same question, i thought i'd post the answer here.
    Please remember that you still need someone to ship it to you from Taiwan.All I did was trace the manufacturer of Xenarc to Taiwan's GAIN Associates.
    Here is the URL http://www.gain.com.tw

    In my case I had a friend there who shipped it to me for free, so that explains my cost

    Holy Crap!!! This is EXACTLY what I needed....Thanks desiz!!!!

    I checked out your website, nice car, I like the way it looks and I love that Alpine radio. Quick question, where are the HVAC controls? Did u move them?

    Anyways, what I am REALLY excited about is the http://www.allelectronics.com website. I needed one of these uber-RadioShack/Fry's Electronics sort of places for the last 3 months and guess what, they're a few miles from my house! Thank you thank you thank you. If I had known about these people months ago, it would have saved me at least $100 in marked up crap that I was forced to purchase from Parts Express, Radio Shack, Fry's, etc...

    Besides being able to use auto start with a OPUS, are there any other benefits of using it besides using a coleman inverter like the one on the 350Z?

    inverter questions

    how loud is your inverter? do you get any noise/interference in your aux sound? where did you buy it?

    can you keep the computer running even after you turn off the car? like when you fill up gas.

    There's just too much hoo-haa over OPUS blah blah... not worth it in my case...(after reading umpteen posts good/bad on it ) plus i needed 170W, not 150

    the colemann works great... can hardly hear it... when the car is off yes u can, but otherwise... zippoo

    www.dakmart.com and i used a paypal $5 off coupon so got it for 21 bucks shipped. as i said in the earlier post, you can hear a fan whizzing when my car is off, but when i'm driving , can't hear it at all.

    yup,i can leave it running when i fill gas.... its only when i start my car that i need to shut it down, takes 5 seconds, i figurered that if that happened a lot i would put the ITPS in, but have not needed it so far

    I like the install. I was driving around my dad's 350Z and I thought that the little storage thingy would be great for an LCD. Glad somebody else thought of it, too. How's the fit? Did you have to do much to cram it in there? I took a quick looksie and it looks a little short vertically.

    More impressive than the install is the webpage. Nice. What did you use for it?
