    i hadnt but thanks for the link, i was thinking more of a built into where my double din is and been able to remove it when not in the car. (no wires showing etc).

    i can see it been a faf but i think it will look smart.

    that does also but i want it more integrated into the console if possible?

    + the fact i refuse to pay like 2.5k for a 1.2 and then 1.5k to insure it xD also have a hate for small cars lol

    This cost me 8.4 + 1.1 for insurance 1st year driving
