    Well it depends. The earlier Concorde looked better. Then before they jumped to the 300, the later intrepid looked better. Like now the Sebring looks ugly, but the Avenger looks good.

    Mine's a first gen Concorde - 1997, I agree, I do not like the looks of the '98 Concorde.

    I tried fitting the M4 into the case last night but there's just no good way to get that M4 in the case of the Thin Client. It's not the wiring from the M4, it's the physical dimensions of the M4

    So my options would be:
    - Get a different case.
    - Build an external case for the M4 to sit in, and run the wires to the motherboard.

    I'm not really too fond of either of these options but I have to do something. I think I'll go with building the external case, I figure I can build something fairly small and fit it below the Thin Client, on the floor, and not have any additional space issues.

    You might avoid building anything by using a "project box". A good place to look for them is Mouser. They carry the Hammond Manufacturing (www.hammfg.com) boxes. If you use this solution, you'll order the box and lid separately.

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    You could do that, but you could also still use the thin client. Simply add another layer to it. Say for example the PCI expansion portion lay the M4-ATX ontop of that, like exposed to the air. Then simply make a plastic enclosure fot it. Like an add on cover type thing.

    The only thing about building the Thin Client up anymore is it's tight for space as is against the Climate Controls.

    I'll have to measure the M4 and see for sure, I have pictures from last night but I just didn't get them uploaded to Flickr yet, I'll do that tonight and post how the M4 sits inside the Thin Client.

    The only thing is, worse case scenario this turns out to be the Oil Pump, and the car costs $900 to fix, the Edmunds value is just over $2,000, and I might have to look at a different car. I am not sure what is going to happen at this point. Love my Chrysler, don't want to see it go just yet.

    you'll be fine chryslers are so famous for there oil pressure switchs leaking oil, there so common that chrysler has a fix kit for it with a new oil pressure switch, connector and wires. I have very rarely seen a oil pump go on those unless you dont do your oil changes.

    BTW looking good..

    Well thats good to know. I love my Dodge it has never given me any other issues except the ones that where listed. They are very reliable, or at least they were. I dont know about the newer models.

    As far as the M4- ATX, you could always have it seperate. Mini-Box sells a enclosure that you can maybe place in another area of the dash, like farther up into it.

    I bought it used so hoping it was done regularly before. I'm hoping this is the case and it's a minor fix.

    What about the M3-ATX? It'd fit, it's 125 Watt, but it's only 20pin, not 24pin.


    Edit:
    - Fits any motherboard equipped with a 20 or 24pin ATX connector.
    Gonna have to do some more research on this guy.
