    Thanks vinzer. I like yours too. I still don't unerstand how you managed to get the cd drive under the screen in your first install. When I saw it the first time, this was wat I wanted to do also but there was just not enough space.

    The plugin is called: SiSoies Visualisation Library. I think Enforcer is gonna try to get it integrated better in one of the next releases of iDrive because I just had it sitting behind the skin.

I'm planning to get an iBus adapter to make the buttons on the steeering wheel work. Then the buttons on the bezel aren't that important anymore. It would be kind of cool if I could make them work however.

    i'm using an ipac2 keyboard emulator and hotkeys to interface my buttons into my computer. you should give that a shot, very high quality piece of hardware

    I have one more question to you:

    How did you hide the frame around Spectrum Analyzer plugin. I am attaching a picture of what I did, and it works but still can not find how to hide the frame and keep indicators only and how to make a button for switching between different VISU in this plugin.
    Thak you in advance for your answer.

    I played with your skin and customized it InetUp as well as HEADING (N,W,S,E,NE,SW,SE,NW) were added in to each skin file. Also I added scroll up and down in *Player.skins as a sliders.

    @Enforcer: You're right. I didn't resize the plugin, just covered the extending parts. Don't know if there is a way to resize it.

    @Vinzer: By the looks of it you made a clip region for the entire analyzer. What I did was making four different clip regions for each section of the analyzer. Looks something like this:
