    As a reference could you do that. (although my night skin has more contrast than that) there is an email contact on my website, use that. Also any info to set up the winamp spectrum analyser and plug etc. I will have a look at it.

    I will try to send them in the next few days. I'm a bit of a buzy bee so I don't have a lot of time but I will do it for sure within a few days.

    Maybe an idea for when you make another update: When using Freedrive, at the top right of the skin shows the speed you're driving but now when you're driving over 100km/h the "1" isn't visible. It's a very small bug but maybe you can fix it in the next version. When I send you the skin you will see I changed it in a few screens but not al yet due to lack of time.

    Didn't have time yet to test v2.12. Maybe It's allready solved in that version. If so, you may ignore this remark.

    That was done deliberately due to space. As we use MPH going into to three figures is unusual. I didn't think about KPH people

    in 2.12 changing that for (almost) all screens is a lot easier, as all the top info is now in just one file, so changing that will change it for (almost) all screens.

    but will look at that for future editions.

    Extremely well done I must say. lol. I like how you did the electrical work in the rear. What's taking up the other two slots though?

    Thank you all for the positive responce!

    What would you like to know? What other two slots do you mean. If you mean left and right of the subcase, there is nothing, just a little bit of space to store things.

    Nice install, I have BMW RDS radio somewhere could be a good idea to use it when I’m going to install my carputer. One question though, how have you connected and integrated the OEM buttons and volume control to your install?
