    Thanks... but that won't work for me since I don't have the factory head unit.

    PM me if you're interested in a monitor faceplate for your '99-'04 Golf or Jetta. My Vortex ID is NorthAtlR32 - you can IM me there, too. Go here for more information.

    I'm really looking forward to the Atlanta meet on the 19th.

    Thanks Chris! It was nice to finally meet you (and the Mrs). I can't wait to see what we can do on the 19th!

    Thanks Michael! Don't worry, there wasn't a meet, per se. I just made it out to his place on an errand. See you in two weeks.

    Thanks Rafster,

    Be careful busting nuts, man!

    The girl in the avatar is my fiance. I'm lucky she likes nerds.

    I have bypassed the factory Lilliput on switch with a rocker switch and my Lilli is powered via my Opus. There are other ways of employing auto-startup, but with the rocker switch, it's very easy to override the auto-on feature in the event menu adjustments need to be made. I relocated my menu buttons to the back of the monitor in the event I ever felt a need to use them. However, I am running it the way it came from the factory. In other words, I haven't changed any of the settings so it was probably a waste of my time and energy to incorporate the buttons into my install, at all.

    EIP???

    Wow...I figured they had to be good at something. I hope you see a lot of good stuff coming out of that place before investing your money.

    They're recovering from a REALLY dreadful reputation. But I've been keeping an eye on them for the last few months. Their most recent offering for the .:R is a performance exhaust system. And like so many of their products, its release was repeatedly pushed back. However, once it came out, it was met with a lot of praise! Its buyers are very impressed with the tone and quality of workmanship as well as the fit of the system.

    Their customers for their intake, heads and slew of other bolt on pieces are really pleased, as well. If they want to sponsor a certain model... then we'll step up for the first of their .:R32 turbo kits! But right now we're in no position to lay down that kind of cash (got a wedding to pay for in May) so we have plenty of time to allow them to continue to build their rep.

    The only solution I found there will work ONLY if I kept my Head Unit - did I miss a solution? Anyhow, I did find a work-around.
