    We're both late repliers I guess. Sorry but i've been also busy with some other things the last few weeks so I didn't visit the forums anymore.

    Didn't do anything with the iBus anymore. For now I am happy with the way it works. I'm still planning on buying an M-technic steering wheel because mine is worn out and ugly. Then I will also have the Phone buttons wich I can use to command the system. Probably to scroll trough playlists and folders.

    Camper looks nice! I'm really curious what you are planning to install in there. "automotive embedded elements which are going beyond the only entertainement"! Seems interresting. Keep me updated!

    Lol yes late repliers we are
    Sorry for this hijack of thread

    Which goes beyond the only entertainment means multi power managment beiing energy from the engine, from both batteries, from the AC and solar as well but not only. I have to (i did from the last post) manage and chase each milliamp to keep the vehicle the longest as possible without having to refuel with power, webasto heater driving from a to z, hot water production, clean and dirt waters managment etc. The internal system is working in conjunction with the entertainment system so yes it goes beyond simple entertainment.
    They are other features that my customer forbids disclosing for now but they are some other "interesting" things i hope i can expose a bit later

    Personnaly i didn't liked so much motorhomes before this experience but i admit that it can be practical when everything in it is comfortable as in a real home.

    I really begin to wonder what your job actually is? It seems you know a bit of everything. I won't ask how you're doing this all because probably I won't understand and you cannot explain because you're forbidden.

    Fantastic work! Simply wonderful! Love the fact that you left the knob and buttons. Do they still light up orange? Perfect setup. I wish I had space for buttons on my dash (check my thread in this same forum, last page).

    Good choice on the skin, too I love the iDrive skin... best looking skin if you want your carpc to look OEM.

    No i known that i know nothing but i'm interested with many things so i take time to dismantle and understand what i can
    Unfortunately there are domains where i'm really dumb like painting or doing fiberglass works and generaly anything related to the use of materials and tools, wood, plexiglass etc.

    Yes you can understand

    Watch your computer, it can communicate, now add a microchip which can communicate too with your computer but which is specialized with treating events from the "real world" or simply act on the "real world".
    You guess what can be done using the power and specs of each involved part (computer and microchip).

    Yes your computer standalone (read without microchip) could do the same but your computer would never care to do the job in strict time especially when many events occurs in same time. Weird things would happen that's why adding a microchip is the only way to be sure that what you want to be done with outer world will be done in strict time without hassles especially if you are acting on actuators, valves, solenoids, injectors or whatever other hardware.

    @Liquidkernel:

    Thanks, I've put in a lot of afford to make it look OEM. Yes the buttons light up orange. If you check out my install thread, there is a pic of the dash at night.

    Yours looks flawless too. Very nice work! And indeed the iDrive skin is the one to choose if you want to make things look OEM.

    @Kraft:

    I'm more of a tools kinda guy. That's why my second job is at my best friends bodyshop. We're specialized in custmizing cars. If you check out my website you will find some things we did in the past.

    The passat is my friend's, the other ones that say "modified by Jaenen" are also done by him and me. The site is in Dutch, if I got some spare time in the future, I want to make an English version too but I haven't got a lot of spare time. But hey, you can look at the pictures.

    If you want some fiberglass, take a look at the Black and Orange BMW. If you don't like car-tuning you probably won't like the car, but you have to appreciate the work on it. Complete fiberglass interiour that we've made! Now we are working on the same look for the trunk. The pics are on the "friends rides" pages. "De Wagen" is about my own car.

    I like tuning but not all in the tuning. I prefer when it stays minimalist

    i.e :

    here is one original Porsche


    and here is mine



    One of my sons is following courses to get graduation for metal and car body works which includes fiberglass, design and paint works as well. Maybe later he will help me

    For now you could kill me but i woudln't be able to cut a straight part of metal or plastic


    Edit : I've been looking at your homepage, you guys are masters in fiberglass works

    I suggest you downloading VLC player before attempting to read this video as windows media player does not support the video codec.

    Sorry, didn't look at this thread for a long time.

    No, I don't actually. I've made this one myself. I guess that It would be possible to have it made by any car bodyshop that has some experience with car-tuning and fiberglass. The basics are the same and a lot of times in tuned cars there are screens molded in the dash. Since there is a high level of car-tuning present in the UK I think it shouldn't be that difficult to find a bodyshop that is willing to do this for you.

    We probably could do it also but we're already having more work then we can handle and I don't like shipping those things back and forward from Belgium to the UK. I think you best option is to find a bodyshop near you.
