Got my Xenarc off ebay, around $370- odd to my place in Doncaster East, Vic.
700 TSV model, which is quite good.
Just a little work involved, and some knowledge, and money of course.
I have all w/s manuals, etc, so no problem, just some additional temp sensors, one solenoid for the airbox, and some wiring to be done. External temp sensor part of passenger side mirror though, so you need to get that, and loom.
BEM needs to be re-programmed, as well as your current HIM, to allow proper control of dualzones.
I will mount my ICC LCD down where your TFT is mounted now, and Xenarc where LCD originally was located - same as your plan ;)
We should hook up, if you need advice give me a shout - maybe I can help.
edit: Before I forget, I have a brandnew ICC plastic bezel lying here, if you want to mod yours - same color, picked it up from ASL, $110-, you can have it for $80 if you need it. Otherwise no prob - soz for off-topic!
G'day DJMickyG (and others),
Having been hooked on MP3Car forums for over 6 months now, I'm hoping to bite the bullet and challenge myself to a 2007 carpc project.
I've recently bought a Ford Territory, and also live in Melbourne (Australia). As such, given the dashboard similarities of our cars, I keenly followed your other thread, and have now subscribed to this one.
As far as the screens go, my initial desire would be to relocate the Stock ICC down and fab a new Touchscreen into it's place. Therefore, I'd be pumped to see any photos from your mates car.
Also keen to hear where your putting the PC etc ? Is that behind the front seats ?
Keep the photos coming if you can.
Well done, good luck, and I will follow with interest.
Which ICC you have? Probably prestige sound with color LCD? Do you have the little slits next to your LCD, on the right-hand side?
I find it may be significantly easier to mod the mono-LCD setup, especially wrt space for fitting a 7" screen.
With a DualZone ICC, I would say max tft touchscreen that will fit would be 6"
Keep us posted, I need to start a Project Log too.
Will do so tonight, and then we can share ideas.
edit: Here is a link to my Project Log if you want to see what I am up too

As far as car goes, yes it's a Ghia so it has:
- The Premium ICC (with dual climate control, large colour screen and trip computer), and
- Premium audio system (with colour screen & 6-disc in-dash CD, 150 watt amplifier & sub-woofer).
Even so, given the dash similarities, it would be pretty foolish to ignore your threads. Still, life will be pretty interesting if and when I'm able to start the venture. Only time will tell.
PS. If you're interested, here's my car.
looks good so far, but....
Can you really see that screen down there? It looks like its hidden to anyone and everyone, including you
yeah it can be seen.

Alternatively, if you'd prefer not to revisit the old thread, then perhaps you can re-post some in this thread or provide a link for us ?
I know that Plague was also interested in them - see below.
Keenly following your progress........
