    i've considered this before, but i wonder how practical it is?

    For instance i regularly retune the radio while driving, and because they're physical buttons i dont need to look at the head unit at all, i just reach out, feel for the control and click it.

    With a tablet/touchscreen your going to have to look at it to do anything as the screen provides no tactile feedback? volume control gets adjusted a lot, and a tablet provides no easy way to do that?

    I must admit it would be very cool to have something like that mounted right there in the dash. As you say, it stems from the carputers of old, and i always wanted one but never quite managed to find suitable hardware cheaply enough. Nowadays you can get cheap chinese android tablets new for about £100, and you have a nice in dash entertainment and navigation centre!

    The other concern would be the lack of a radio and CD player. Most of my music is on USB, but i do from time to time just grab a CD and chuck it in. A proper carputer would get round these issues, as you could mount a CD drive and a FM reciever somewhere pretty easily, not so easy with a tablet though...

    This would look cool on the A3 8v if you could have it slide up out of the dash
