Default I'm torn...



I really don't know what to do, and I have been thinking about this for a while, so I would like to see your opinion. After seeing gameover'* ride I really want to add an in-dash LCD... I was thinking this one: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn..._37925,00.html and then adding a PS2 for DVD capablities. It'* not so much that the money is not available, I just don't know if I want to spend it on that. I think it would be cool as hell to have a TV in the dash, but at the same time, I want to save my money. I will be going off to college next year, and will not have my car for the whole first semester (at least)... so that also makes me want to avoid buying it. Plus, after college, I think that I am going to be buying MY first car, so an extra grand would be good to add to a down payment. What do you think?

Yea, I was confused a little bit to one time. Now I think I am going to keep this car for a long time. At least another 6 years minimum. It will be cheaper to buy a new engine then a new car. But if your thinking about selling it then stay away from the monitor, only if your for sure.

My advice....go to ebay and buy it new, and when you go to buy another car, resell it on ebay. The price difference between new and used in dash screens is so small on ebay, you'll only have lost about $100 max by the time its all over. Just make sure you keep all the stuff that came with it to get the most for it when you sell it. Then you're just looking at a matter of "is it worth $100 to have an in-dash screen for a year or so?"

I'd say yes.....

if you're driving and playing a video game at the same time, you need to stop doing one, cause you'll do neither very well.
