i dont know about the costs, i imagine the LCD is less expensive being as how your only buying the screen instead of the whole HU w/ the LCD. but installation (unless you do it yourself somehow) might get costly, and i have no idea how to wire it all up and how much that would cost. i bet it could be less. and i dunno what you could do wiht the OBD. maybe put it in the glove box?

i agree with this, i think that that area has a little bit of an inverted slope to it so you'd have to build the sides out so that the screen could face a decent upwards angle. unless you are very good at installing stuff like this, or know someone who is that will work for cheap or free, id say just go with a flip up screen.
