    Bluetooth
    Wifi
    DVR card (for capturing driving footage)
    Computer Case - Custom job created from a utility box purchased at Home Depot
    Micro Keyboard - chopped and customized to retract on zip line
    Craploads of cables
    Dynomat Extreme
    Weather-stripping
    Stealthed Valet switch

    Misc
    - 2x JL Audio 10w6v2 D4

    I love the look of the dash peice. This is probably the best set-up for theives because of how stock it looks. Its hardly noticable.

    That band sounds familiar but I can not think of any of their songs at the moment. I just suck at naming things. Snake's name=none, Alligatorís name=Joe etc. So when I joined the RX8Club I just went with boxcar because it's the only mod I had done to my current car as well as my 3 prior vehicles. Until now that is
