Roadentertainment Touch Screen
If you’re stuck in traffic and almost an hour late for that meeting with your grouchy boss, then roadentertainment’s 7-inch Touch Screen will come in handy. It can’t make the car in front of you move an inch forward, but it can play your favorite DVDs, MP3s, VCDs, CDs, and CD-RWs to keep your mind off the thought that you might be panhandling the next day. It also functions as an AM/FM radio and can even remember 30 stations of your choice. The graphic screen allows easy operation by touch. Oh, it also has a wireless remote control.

What good is an amplifier if you don’t have the killer speakers to go with it? Sony’s XSGF1032X 4- inch speakers will please even the most demanding audiophile.

So pay no mind to the chaos outside; turn up the volume and enjoy the power of Sony’s XSGF1032X speakers. They’re so good they can make even Air Supply sound hip!

Turismo Sport Steering Wheel
Still short on cash and can’t get that beaut in the showroom? Then it’s time to put your hands on the new Turismo Sport steering wheel from Tenzo Racing Sports. The Turismo looks so sharp it can make your aging lemon look like a powerful European sport sedan! (Well, at least from the inside.) This steering wheel is lined with perforated leather and features a 350-mm aluminum frame with an integrated horn button. Go impress the ladies with its anatomically designed hand rests at the 10 and 2 positions (“They taught me how to use those at racing school, you know...”).

KC 35 Series wide-Beam Driving Light
Afraid of night driving especially in long and lonely stretches? Fear not! The KC 35 Series Wide-Beam Driving Light is here. It has 55W halogen bulbs for brighter, whiter, and more efficient light. See, factory headlights are designed primarily to increase a driver’s visibility range, but KCs are built to give you better side-to-side vision. You know you’ll get your money’s worth because every KC 35 Series light is protected by a durable ABS composite housing. Don’t be surprised if your KCs outlive your rickety ride; the manufacturers were nice enough to throw in a 23-year warranty. So get these virtual night suns and worry no more about things that go bump in the night.
