    Phase 2 will be the voice activation and tuning phase. Specifically, fine tuning the Audio, GPS, and organizing/beefing up the MP3 & Video Library. Also setup of the bluetooth phone integration.

    Phase 3, I dunno yet. Maybe install a sub, but doubt it cause I need all the cargo room for the dog and long road trips. It would also take away from the "stealth" aspect.

    Hopefully phase 3 will just be to enjoy Phases 1 and 2 without wanting to do more. Then again, that'll probably never happen...

    Nope, not that stealth. I never even thought of that, actually. Does anybody even sell faceplates or covers for a 7" screen?

    i saw someone with a similar qx4 last summer at the ny meet use the stock radio. a lot of people do it, actually. he cut the front off the stock radio, and places it over the screen when parked. it was simple and looked very stealth
