I found the horn sound of the escape not always loud enough. I bought a horn on a group buy coupon site (Groupon if any of you knows it) for a decent price (something like 29$ or so) and I received it last week, I just need to figure out where to install it (cause it's bigger thant I thought).

For the Nexus, it's maybe hard to tell by viewing the pics, but the right side is lower and you can see a little gap on the top. We also see a little bit of the silver frame housing off the Nexus so I want to hide that!

I also got good fogs for cheap at a local store (Wich can be returned within 30 days) so i'll give a try and if I don't like it I'll return it!

I'll poat pics when I will install them :p

With the lights on (it's actually aux driving lights, not fogs) it gives something like that

I'm not sure yet if I like that, I would like to have your opinions!

Hmm. This might be a nice project. Seems a bit involved though. :)

Do you have any pics of the front end from different angles. I'm a little on the fence about those lights, too. Maybe a different angle will sway one direction or another.

here's pictures from different angles. About the frontend, it's simply a background with transparent shortcut (Created using Desktop Visualizer), UCCW For the clock, Yahoo Weather for the weather (Wich can be ggived by UCCW, but I had a location update problem) and finally Media Utilities for the music widget
Image

the background is originaly from a mp3car user (rxritalin), who gives his photoshop file to anyone wanting to use it ( see the post ). I edited it to respond me needs (and to be in french too, as you can see) I anyone wants my photoshop files, just ask! And if you have any other questions, you can ask too!

Did you have premium sound before installing the nexus?
I'm installing my nexus 7, and I have the premium sound package. I'm having trouble deciding how to wire.
Is the amp in the head unit or somewhere else?

Sorry for not responding (it's been a long time I haven't been here). I had premium sound package. I bought a little 4x50W marine amp that was perfect to fit behinf the tablet. If you still need help, contact me in PM :)

I wonder if there is a way to keep the factory deck some how tucked in behind the dash.. just for the bluetooth and Sirius! (Have it pre-set channels and answer calls through steering wheel controls)
