    2004 Mazda RX-8

    Here is a link to my RX-8 CarPC
    Mazda RX-8 PC

    I posted the specs a while back, let me know what you think.

    There are also some pictures in that link to the car show I attended last weekend.

    Vry nice, very nice...I really didn't know that RX-8s have such big trunks.
    Why didn't you replace the stock screen?

    The stock Navi screen cost around $500 to tap into, its a royal PIA so I decided to go this route. Soon I will have it flush mounted in the dash but for now this will work.

    Foglight mod is just hyperwhite bulbs to match the Halogen Headlights. I also modded them to come on with the car instead of just when the Headlights come on.

    You mean you don't have Xenon lights on that ride? How come?

    Thanks for the props on the case, not too much work and it is very useful for handling bumps because it is padded and I can take the computer out easily when I want.

    I can measure the center as soon as I am home tonight.
