    So..... I have decided against mounting a screen and going with a full blown carpc as of yet. This is mainly because I recently attained a Dell Axim X51v with a 4Gb SD card.

    Until I decide I want to get rid of the factory head unit I will run the following set-up:

    -Dell Axim X51v w/ 4gb SD card
    -ProClipUSA mounts for the golf and the Axim
    -Grom connector from InDashPC

    This will achieve MP3 Playback at CD quality sound and should only cost a little over 140 with shipping (because I already own both the Axim and SD card).

    This setup should be more than enough for my uses until I want to take that dive and either remove the factory headunit and replace with aftermarket or run with no Headunit.

    Hopefully I can get all of the missing pieces ordered by the end of this month.

    thats up for debate, but the 1.8t in the golfs isnt usually a problem. in the passats on the other hand either way, nice car! good luck with your carpc.

    welcome to the club....

    and...ahem...the debate between teh 1.8T and the VR6 will live on for ages...just remember this...the VR6 has multiple cars in the 9s last I checked....the 1.8T had only one or so...

    however, this isn't the point of this thread, not in the least.

    Enjoy your ride. The dash is ideal for a 7" or 8" screen and a few other things as well.

    Good luck on your install! If you're looking for some ideas, feel free to check out my web page with pictures of the install.

    Thanks Red,

    As far as getting VR's and 1.8t's into the 9's... first off any car can be brought into the 9's all it takes is money. Second I'm not even sure if my car will be receiving any "Go-fast" mods as it is a daily driver and I need it to be running and ready 100% of the time.

    When I do end up going ahead and mounting a screen I will be putting in one of the transflective upgraded ones, but it may be awhile. This time around instead of just putting something in to put something in I will be collecting everything I need before I install. Hopefully things will go much smoother that way.
