I used to have this mount...

http://images6.fotki.com/v87/photos/8/82413/1021583/DSC05143-vi.jpg

...but I was never really satisfied with it. It's a bad spot for looking at the display (too far away). So I was thinking about a closer spot that I can see the display better.
I took a piece of sheet-metal, bent it and painted it black.
So this is the new mount...

Btw I'm working on a red illumination for the boost gauge so the center-vent looks a little ghetto right now untill I'm done with the illumination.[:D]

Give me the money and I will[:D] I don't care that the iPod is white. It works great, no need to get rid of it. Just for the look ?
Ah come on, thats bullshit.

Nicely done. That is exactly where I'd mount it if I had one. Was thinking of building a mount for there for my MD player.

very very nice, can you do me a huge favor? can you take a picture of the whole thing, console and all? i want to see how it looks as a whole, thinking of putting it there myself.

It is just a piece of thin sheet-metall that I bent to a angle bracket. I fitted it onto the dash from below (behind the trim) by 2 screws.

I thought of putting mine near there too originaly, but felt that interfacing with it would be an issue since I don't use denisons crappy interface.

how have you found this placement to be when using the click-wheel?

There is enough space to scroll the click-wheel. I can reach it perfect with my thick fingers[:D]

The sze of the hole depends on the diameter of your gauge. There is gauges with 52mm but also in other diameters. I milled the hole on a milling-machine. That took like forever but I want a clean look. You have to be a damn genious to get a good result by using a Dremel. Oh it's pretty easy to get the vent out but my english is too poor to describe, sorry. Use a credit card or a thin piece of sheet-metal. I gotta pull it out. Remove one or two of the vents so you can stick your fingers into it to reach the back of the vent-unit. Then pull carefully. I'm sure there's many write-ups on AW.

a black iPod would be SICK with your piano black trim!

So does the metal go under the trim?

I have a buddy who works at a body shop. He painted all trims for me for less. It was not much.

[:D] Good choice Joseph[;)] You should have got the U2 edition, it's black/red. My brother has it and it looks pretty cool in the Audi.
