    neato idea

    I just had a cool idea, it's been done so it't not really that cool but anyway here's what i'm going to do. I was previously looking at the oem guage pack so i was looking into getting one, then my cd player breaks.... hmm, welll i'll either warranty or just get a new one, but as i was taking it out I realized what i should do. make a blank silver faceplate and put 3 guages in it along with like intercooler spray switch and some other switches
    maybe even boost controller if it could all fit in there, then just put my cd player in the glove compartment. Sound like a good idea? i'm sure people have done this so does anyone have pics of anything similar?

    If you buy an aftermarket head unit, you could mount it where the optional gauge cluster would replace the clock.

    in my WRX i had the radio in the gauge location with a hideaway face. i left the stock radio in there as a dummy. when you looked, the faceplate was hidden, so you didn't even think twice that there might be something different than the stock radio. ask the mid-atlantic guys; they've seen it if you want my cluster housing, i'm selling it off since i'm doing something different in the STi

    alpine's CDA-7998, but if you don't want to go that crazy, there's a lower model, the 7995, and a bunch of others on the market. the alpine, IMHO, is the best sounding processor in the industry at this time (not using external processors, that is). oh yeah, and it looks cool.

    I was looking at that head unit. I like the look alot. How did it look and feel in the WRX? did it feel cheap when you pushed the bottons, since it sticks out a little.

    What did you use to fill in the rest of the gap? Can you send me or direct me to some pics of it in your car????

    Thanks!
