Car upgrade and meme

Woohoo. Decided last night it was about time I upgraded the car stereo to something with an aux-in so I could use my MP3 jukebox in the car without resorting to FM transmitters with occasionally crappy quality, especially as next project may entail lots of driving to Reading for a couple of months. Only meant to pop along to the local Halfords to see what was available but they offered to fit it there and then. Yep, that definitely sounds much better. Only downside is that the new stereo doesn't have an input for the steering wheel controls :-(

Anyway, so, beware all who travel in my car - I now have 60Gb of my tastes in music with which to torture you!
