    I was really into using Pandora radio and gps through AUX, but didnt want my :motdroidhoriz: flying around in my 450hp beast. So Basically I had the Verizon combo case and mount for $24. Since Ive been using it, it has made my windshield cluttered. I already had a Hardwired Radar Detector, and Custom Made Gauges, and the suction cup arm is massive in size....plus it would fall off overnight....leaving smudges.

    I utilized the back case (shaved the locking tabs so I can easily pull it out) and took the hook mount off the arm and added a rubber stop that perfectly clips to my ashtray....very sturdy too.

    If your wondering what that rocker switch is for it powers the Halo's.

    My halos are colored Not white and wont fade.......
    My charger is more roomier, bigger but still faster than an m3 at the track.....
    AUTO BECAUSE WHEN IM ON A DATE I WANT THAT EXTRA HAND....LOL
    MY CAR sounds like a muscle car and not a kazooo
    with the economy why not support our own USA workforce

    Great post Inferno! This is a great point! As a BMW enthusiast and owner of a daily driver Honda Civic, I couldn't pick a better response. The Kazoo remark capped the post off...one of the funniest I've seen here.

    Like many other things, it's not a one-size-fits-all world.

    Nice work! Unfortunately there's no way I could mount the Droid like that in my car but I already have a bracket -- just need a new device mount.

    To be honest even a Honda is a great car with a 4cyl because it fits the economy class perfect, its cheaper, and lasts a long time.

    Exactly that's why now I see more people making and customizing their own mounts.....everyone's car is different, and some people like reaching and some don't like suction cups......so why not save money and make our own!!

    My is S2000 is perfect for twisty roads. As I said, it's not a one-size-fits-all world. If you have a torque fetish it probably won't float your boat.
