Thanks for answering my questions. I also have a '98 Passat and was hoping to fit a mini-ITX motherboard in the dash.
I'll give it a try one of these days. Hate to get back into the electrical on this car (Passats are so fickle). After my speaker and amp install I still have troubles.
Did you fab that bezel yourself or were you able to find one?
Also, I don't know if we can pitch other forums here, but here's a good group for Passats: http://www.passatworld.com. Stop by.
Darn double posts, first one didn't show at first....
