    for £10 more you can get the front sensors, the led unit would look better if it was the other way up, then you could mount it next to the rear view mirror, think your limited to where you can put it that way round, imo

    If you can take it apart, you may be able to flip the displays. I had a similar one in my old car and had the display in the boot @ ceiling height, so I could see it from the mirror.

    i have been wondering where to mount the display... was thinking maybe in the rear somewhere or above the rear mirror... or maybe in the little recess thing below the stereo?

    anyone else got a similar kit? need inspiration lol! :P
