I've been looking at double-din head units as well.   This seems like it is a good match for the car. I agree with RobG that many of the current crop are too bling-y.

I love the blue and red nighttime illumination in these cars. How does it look at night? Can you change any of the colors used by the display?

You cant really change much appearance wise with it, but idk what you'd want blue or red. Maybe the 3 little illuminated physical buttons, but to me the screen looks fine being the colors it is (mostly black/white themed). I'll try and get some night time pics.

Pics aren't that great, but here's some night shots with the lights on.

Thanks! It looks nice. This HU is definitely on my candidate list.

Finally getting some goodies together, hopefully this all works!

No these will not be red. I've already sand blasted them and am waiting to get them painted.


And some nice little rotors next to my goofy big head.

No more wasting time buying yellow fog light bulbs! Made me some yellow fog light lenses.


Going to let them sit inside a while to cure, with how cold it is outside they never would.

Well boys, welcome to the b6/b7/s5 brake upgrade! B6/7 S4 calipers and brake lines, s5 rotors, all straight bolt on! 345mm discs, and much more wheel clearance between caliper and spokes!

One more pic. They aren't quite as massive as dmcdmc's "lambo" brakes, but they are as big as you could go and still fit stock 17s... almost as cool, lol

Here's with my 19s on
