    As the saying goes...."if you don't like the heat, get out of the kitchen"

    Props to your creativity, but it's just not for everyone.

    Very neat and creative application of the new product. But yeah, would seem a little out of place in a driving focused vehicle.

    Don't you hate those, I would be hopping curbs and going out in the mud if I had one.

    I agree with Kieran, creative but not for everyone.

    No disrespect to your apparent creativity, but what I'm not understanding is why the same thing couldn't be done with an iPhone or a Touch. It would certainly look a lot less obnoxious. The iPad is just too big for the dash and it looks out of place. Just my opinion.

    Maybe you stopped coming here because your thinly veiled commercial posts don't bling, er bring you any business.

    Not exactly a coincidence I suspect.

    As a PI attorney I love fools who add such modifications to their cars. That way when they cause an accident while surfing the web, sending e-mails, ect..., I can get punitive damages for my client for such reckless conduct. Why not add a Playstation and Wii too?

    This is one of the times I love living in a country where the almighty TÜV has a strong grip on every part of the car that might be a danger to others. You'd rightfully get crucified if you surfed the internet while driving over here.

    Yeah, but at least we have the freedom to surf while holding up traffic in the left lane... :)

    Seriously, there's just far too much infotainment crap in cars. I have sat nav in my Audi, and the only time I use it is before I set off somewhere. If I get a call while driving, I have voicemail.

    I think the Germans have (until the iDrive era) had the right idea when it comes to car interiors -- functional and spartan.

    Why would someone buy a Ferrari to sit around and surf the Internet? :rolleyes:

    You might go to EscaladeChat where they love this stuff and are cool about mods.

    I have begun asking for cell phone records as a matter or course since so many accidents are caused by BSing on the phone.

    I like it. Do you have a kit for a 2010 Autobiography that matches the Arabica interior materials? Also, does it stay put during actual off-roading? And how long does it take to remove it/put it back in place? And the $$$?

    Thanks!

    People harping on you on the internet cause you to not buy a super car? Wow, you must be the definition of the 55lbs weakling.
