There appears to be something on the left dash that could be the rear camera display.
That guy is me and that "dirty finger" Is actually blood under my fingernail; I slammed my finger in the car door by accident about 2 months ago; not my proudest moment. I get alot of "wash your damn finger", or wow emo go kill yourself comments" The way I see it $40 is a LOT less than $250, and I don't mind living with an extra screen. It's not like this thing is going to be a show-car; I use it to commute to and from school downtown where parking is hairy. True, I wish I could have afforded the parking package, but as a student I'm damned lucky to even have a car from the last 5 years let-alone a new one.
Oh and if you want to see it in action watch this video, it's towards the end.
