    Angel, you stink! JK. This looks awesome! How has it performed for you? Thats a nano itx board right?

    I couldn't agree more! The competition IS intense, so it's a frikkin treat just to get nominated!

    Well it has served me well! To be honest, I'm impressed it's still alive!
    Been in the car for about 2 years, and the mobo has been thrown around a bunch while out of it's shell.

    It's NOT a Nano itx, unfortunately. That would have made it so much easier to upgrade down the line. It's only a P4 2,0 Ghz, and a C2D would be nice. I actually wrote Xenarc to hear what it was as there is no numbers or anything on the pcb. They only told me it's a generic board. No manufacturer, and the form-factor is way out of the way of any standard.

    And thanks for the kind words!

    seems almost a shame to mount it out of the way like that, hiding all the custom milling work.

    Thanks guys!

    I completely agree, but unfortunately there are people in this world who believe stealing other peoples stuff is a great idea, and for that reason it's hidden!

    i know this thread is a year old but i have only just started to be interested in mp3car again after too many years. i have to agree with everyone. this is one of the best if not the best custom case for a car i have seen.
    I have a V40 2002 model and found this while researching other builds for inspiration.
    Volvo V40 Phase 2 2002. T4 turbo upgrade.... currently no mp3 or carputer..... researching options
