    Clean GTI VR6

    black 2001 vw gti vr6
    37,000miles
    Goodyear eagle f1 tires (unreal the ride and handeling diff)
    no engine mods
    stock (with the acception of that little computer thingy)

    OK here it goes, my thread on my install that began a year ago. I am posting in this new sub-forum (great job on listening to your fellow forum members and adding this forum),my title says newbie which I am but that title is there for a reason

    Lots and lots of the endless search . The knowledge on this board is unreal,
    this forum alone has taught me much more then just car comp. It has taught me endless knowldege from audio codec differences to runing your computer cleaner and faster, how to control servos ect ect.

    But lets get on with it shall we

    My over all goals with this project.

    1.music, gps, movies, game emulation ect and all the endless possabilites.

    2. ease of use

    3. somewhat stock look (basically wanted to keep the ****ty monsoon head
    unit because it just looks too good at night with
    the rest of the car) + plus keep cost somewhat
    lower.

    *side note:
    I know i have options with my radio and such but i would
    rather
    not get into that yet

    4. security...as in keeping it look stock aka rotating screen and tape deck
    where i live every single person i know has had there stereo
    stolen. litarally right in front of my house and the car was like
    20 feet away. So to me and hopefully a thief, tape deck = no
    system i hope

    5. saftey, so i tried to acomplish my goals with using as little wood metal
    and bolts as possable. keeping all air bags (more on this later).

    6. But overall doing every little bit myself...well with the help of everybody
    on this board


    On that note i would like to thank everybody from the programers to the everyday board member with there help of makin this come together.

    I could go on forever so lets rap up the intro and get into

    the good stuff...

    The orig dash

    Ok with the before and after out of the way lets get onto the guts of this.
    I am hoping this thread can get me some attention to help bring this baby
    to a somewhat close (well for now anyways ).

    Since most people on this board like to see and take in a whole project
    (me included) I will try and explain my ups and downs in what I have done so far.




    Step 1: Research, research, research,

    Step 2: Plan

    step 3: Purchase (it hurts but it is worth every last damn penny)

    1. epia m1000
    2. opus 150 watt
    3. zenark 7" touch
    4. 2.5 40gig hard
    5. pny geforce fx5500 (hardware dvd decoder)
    6. delorme gps

    well i think u get the point with the hardware

    step 4: build (by far my favorite part)

    1. Rip dash apart (know worries never plan on sellin the car)
