hey everyone, My first post here, seems lot of tbhpians here which is always good news. I have a stock black MJD epk and I think its a good time to MOD it. I am not really looking for performance changes, since I hardly drive the car and its mostly city drive. My priorities are automation > interiors > exteriors > performance.Things I plan to do strictly DIY basis ( thats the whole point ): 1. Automated and voice activated a-la KITT :evil: have found the perfect TTS female voice for it already. Blue&Me 3-4 years back was nice, now its just dated and cannot do 90% of the things I want it to do ( so long Microsoft ) 2. Primary and secondary computers ( both in tablet forms ) 3. Custom UI & and Interaction engine 4. Half a mind to rip apart the central console ie HU and HVAC panels and custom fit a tablet ( no tactile buttons either touch interface or voice recognition) 5. Thanks to TF - HUD using OBD and Torque or similar and DIY floor lights albiet voice controlled including dimming and colors 6. Race-chip or some tuning box ( nothing extra fancy ) but just for kicks 7. Black Artleather seat covers and door trims ( really not into beige ) 8. Improve GC ( any idea if there is an option of buy-back of the 15" alloys ? ) 9. Usual tinkers GPS-Nav, park sensors, security etc. 10.Custom ICE - am planning to integrate the X-fi THD in the mix, no CD/DVD or physical media interface except USB / FW My Weaknesses: 1. Lazybum ! 2. Dont know much about Linea's automotive engineering bit 3. Not aware of the Linea's electricals and electronics CKTs ( time to read the manuals !! ) 4. Local sourcing of parts / mod stuff / mounts / components in India 5. Need of a Linea MJD expert mechanic 6. Bunch of helpful blokes owning Fiat cars (which is obviously sorted out being on this forum ) My expertise / skillsets: 1. Amateur / Expert level in electronics / DIY computers / device interfacing 2. Expert level in GUI / Multi-touch UX / Programming / Port programming 3. Voice Recognition systems / TTS / Automotive OS 4. I love the Linea ! ( very important skillset ) My Budgets: INR 3 lacs can go upto 4-5 if the project carries on as I presume. Have already acquired Asus Transformer tablet might upgrade to the Panasonic Rugged Tough tablet A1 more suited for the environment. Help from fellow forum members: 1. Motivation and ideas / quirks 2. Valuable experiences of what NOT to do 3. Additions to my list of things to do 4. Anything that'll help me achieve what I have planned for I know its a tedious, time-consuming project..but then again..that's where the fun is ! Cheers!
