Loving it! Is that a little custom blue light by the cigarette lighter on the last pic??

thanks! ... no that's the stock led light that came with the car. The camera setting I used for that picture left the shutter open to grab as much light as possible; that's the reason for the intense glow. The ring around the cig lighter used to light up too but that blew out :(

xbox went underneath the seat. I have to wait until someone can help me hardwire the xbox straight to the battery because the inverter i have can't handle the wattage thte xbox uses throuh the cig lighter. it has two wireless controllers to go along with it.

Trust me.... I looked everywhere for this car. I didn't go new with an 07 model because of it.

haha yeah two used Winning Blue sedan's were for sale, one in Lansdale PA and one in Turnersville NJ. Lansdale one got sold, so i was sad but looking back i'm glad I didn't get that one. it only had the 16" rims on it and was automatic, but did have the stock wing. The turnersville NJ one was just ideal.... just didn't have the stock wing which obviously i ended up getting later on thanks to ebay :)

you want to hardwire the xbox to the battery? or just the inverter to the battery? they have stuff you can use to hook up a carpc to the battery directly at mp3car.com an informative board.

i haven't had problems with my xbox power and i have an inverter, but i dont plug it into the lighter, it is hard wired to the battery.

yeah i already have the inverter which didn't cause any video issues as expected, so i'd like to keep that without havin to go with one of those power supplies you can find to have it directly connect to the vehicle. Do you have a writeup on how you did it? I'm hardly savy when it comes to this stuff.

damn are you serious?? i dont even have aftermarket rims! but thanks!

and yes you can play xbox in it. I am hoping to be chillin with Ant and Sean up there in two weekends while I help Sean with his coolnavi install. I would need assistance in connecting the power inverter directly to the battery, after that... xbox is all game!
