After being away from the car pc business for some time because of a lack of money, time and a broken touchscreen.
But this summer I got a new car and started form the scratch...
And thats whats done:
Installed a second 55Ah battery in the trunk, connected via a relais which is closed for charging 15 seconds after th ignition is on. Added a 1F PowerCap to stableize the current.
The CarPC is also localized in the trunk. Specs:
512MB DDR Ram
60GB 2,5" HDD
M2-ATX 160W PowerSupply
8-Channel parallel Relais Card
7" TFT Touchscreen w Autobrightness
Freecom DVB-T Stick
Guess thats it ... Lets get over to the pictures:

PS: I apologize for my worse english. I'm a little bit out of practice...
Forgot to mention my backup-camera:
Nice to see you back mate.
BTW you got a paypal account
Happy to be back
Got paypal, why?
I have recieved a few donations for the iDrive skin and seeing as you are the originator of it I think some of that should go your way.
If you have PM me the details. (it may not be much but it all helps.)
