Question 8" LCD screen wide-screen

Inspired by e46.mit.edu and others, I will now begin to plan and design my In-Car-Computer.

The difficult thing though, is to find a 8" Wide-Screen LCD display with VGA/DVI inputs.

I have seen the xenarc Screens, but they don't come bigger than 7". Had they med one in 8", it wold have been perfect!

My goal is to have the biggest screen that can fit within the place of the former NAV.

I believe that maximum size is about 8-9"

The OEM stereo/amp/speakers are going in the bin, all stereo will be integrated into the computer, and all speakers and amps will be aftermarket.

So, where do you guys come up with all those nice LCD's, give me a clue/link/brand-name...

TIA

Well, thought about that one for a while, but it's missing VGA/DVI input. I need high resolution, since the computer is going to host lots of functions (cameras, DAB and FM radio, NAV, MP3, DVD, DiVX, WWW, mail etc.)

Also, touch screen would be nice, but if there isn't anything available, I'll settle with a touchpad under the armrest (like the one from e46.mit.edu).
