    I have had my installation finished for a couple months now, and I thought I would post these over here. I am using the "Golf" night theme which is a good match with the dash (blue/red) cluster illumination. The Eclipse's red dial and button illumination integrates well with the other VW interior lighting!

    Here is the H/U:

    Here's a nifty little splashscreen I cobbled together:

    Lately I have been working on the features/functionality & dialing it in, and have been stymied in my efforts to import my contacts to the tomtom... but I haven't given up yet...

    Enjoy!

    looks great! I swear eclipse set these up to match a VW perfectly. I have a few pics of my 04 Jetta TDI floating around this forum somewhere and the golf theme on the TT with the red lights on the eclipse work really well.

    Did you get one of the rabbits with different colored body panels? (it's a reference to the commercial when they brought it back for those that don't get it)

    Aw, shucks... :eek: Thanks for the compliments, everybody!

    I have really been enjoying it so far, and yes N715DP, it does seem like the Eclipse people had this in mind... of course, they also seem like tey'd work out nicely in a Pontiac as well (more red lighting). I'll have to find your TDI & give it a look...

    My '08 is an all black rabbit 2Dr... although the multicolor one from that commercial was a brilliant :D idea, and I might have gotten one like that had they marketed them... it might have looked good with the gray/black/white panels & kept colors out of it (remember the oler "harlequin" VW? That thing was sinfully ugly)

    Thanks for looking everyone!
