I-Drive modding

You guys think it is possible to "hack" the I-drive screen for it to play movies from the DVD slot? Or display boost gauges or anything of that sort?

Every time i stare at it, this question comes to mind...

DVD is read from the CCC. You'd need DVD-video player software in the CCC in order to play videos. Or you could buy a video switch and use a second DVD player.

Boost gauges would need to be programmed into the CCC - not easy. Or you could buy a video switch and use a car PC, or you could a switch with a stand-alone video boost gauge unit.
