    as you say mate, sat nav, store music, DVD, music vids, internet, not 100% sure how at the moment but it will involve USB bluetooth and my phone, anything, im looking into connecting it with my ECU for on board diagnostics, just a normal PC running windows XP pro, so anything a normal PC can, only cost me £450 so far!!!! and thats with 4 TV screens (only 1 is touch screen thou)

    If I might make a suggestion..... or two

    1. A G meter/accelerometer etc (as per Skyline GTR)?!?

    2. T'internet could easily be done via the PCMCIA broadband cards that Vodaphone are now selling. It provides 512Mb('broadband') over their 3G network?!? Think it's quite expensive though - but sure as hell will be quicker than using ur little moblie!! (Bluetooth transfer rate is about 3K per second - that's about a third of the speed of dial up t'internet - so would be pants)

    Excellent idea though - and cheap (so far).
    What's your car?!? Any Pics of inside/outside?!?

    my interior is nothing to special, blue LED dash conv, chrome heater rings, will all be painted and done when the PC goes in, Do you know where these G meters are avaliable, that would be good, would have to go thru the serial or usb port?

    Posh bugger Luke I'd be interested in seeing it complete. I can build PC's but never attempted anything that ambitious. Got to say though that ICE is very low on my list, I've still got the CDR500 and that's rearely on. I like to hear the engine revving goes back to my motorcycle racing days I think.
