This would not be the first time we report on ingenious people who take matters into their own hands and bring the gift of Android to novel places. But this guy is quite crafty and we loved the attention to detail that he put into his work.
Via Reddit, we learned about an Impreza owner who decided he wasn’t going to shell thousands of dollars for an aftermarket head unit for his 2008 Subaru Impreza STi. (By the way, the price tags of infotainment units are just scandalous, don’t you think?)
User metajames posted on a Subaru fan forum images of his handiwork, as well as all the components he used:
With a little elbow grease and plenty of ingenuity, he fitted his Nexus 7 into the dashboard flawlessly. If you’re interested in finding more, check out the original forum thread and the Reddit post, where you will find many pictures and more details.

Watch out …. I have a plan. Ever heard if adk? There is more then putting a tablet in the dash. Start with thinking of all the things you expect of your in dash radio… Then think of all three things that you could do with a computer in the car.. Mash it up with a data connection… Mind blown!
now this, is just cool :D
Mp3car.com so many other options. Customgadz.com is the best I’ve seen.
Same type of plan I have for my mazdaspeed 6. But I’m gonna get the torque app to that monitors a lot of the engines performance meters. The nexus 7 in my opinion is the single best device android is on. I hope the next nexus 7 is also made by asus.
