    taylorix case: stop searching for it... It is NOT a computer case, it's an old (really old!) metal case which hosted an antique modem from taylorix... These days modems were built like this and had the amazing speed of 1200 baud... ;-) You'll probably NOT find any around.
    Well, the case had exactly the right size, but several metal working had to be done to make the whole interior fit into it. By the way, it is not so ideal, because when you want to open the top you have to remove the DVD-Rom and HD cables carefully.

    video-wire: the video-wire I ran to the front of the car came along with the set of things I got from kufatec. (it included the tuner itself, the antenna modules, the new head-unit and a lot of cables). The wire itself was green, and had two special plugs on each side if I remember right. But I think its nothing more than a standard composite video cable (But I might as well be wrong about that.)
    The original head unit was exchanged with the new one (as said it sits underneath the glove compartment, I had the Audi shop do it, because the new head unit had to be activated by audi anyway. (component protection)

    Power supply: M2-ATX is it's name, typed into google gives you lots of hits ;-)
    I got mine form the first hit displayed by google: cartft.com (http://www.cartft.com/catalog/il/574) Germann site, but you can change language to english as well.

    Hope I could help

    Very nice, I like this install a lot. I have a new Audi, but without factory nav, so I bought a Lilly 7" for my carPC. This interface is nice and clean and everything works well with the interface. Does the video go full screen?

    HI rschaffer29
    Yes it goes full-screen.
    With Interface you probably mean the front end ?!
    It's roadrunner with a selfmade skin.

    Cool,
    By interface I meant everything from the front end software to the actual physical dash appearance and the way the display flows with the car

    great job, again

    Integration Questions

    Jar JarBinks

    So which Kufatec product did you buy? In the writeup you mention 1400 Euros. I assume that was the Audi cost not the Kufatec cost.

    Is the CarPC integrated with composite video out? Or does the Kufatec solution bypass the LVDS display cable when activated? Some have complained that the composite video quality is not high enough for a CarPC.

    Would you be willing to send me a private message on this forum. I am working on a project you might be interested in.

    Your Nav Unit

    What year is you A6? I have a 2005. I saw your Nav unit and was wondering if one of those units would fit and work with my MMI system.

    Thanks

    JarJar,
    Do you have your MMI skin available anywhere to download?
    I'm trying to do a similar thing... but can't find any skins optimised for non-touchscreen use.

    Many thanks
