It's more so that I have a monthly budget I set up. So what I do is set aside an amount for a part, and then forget about it after I buy it. I imagine in the long run the price meets or exceeds the price of an RA4, but I like to think of it as financing, without the borrowing. If an emergency comes up, or I want to use my extra cash elsewhere, I simply put the project on hold until a more convenient time.
Edit: what I mean by the budget is that I'll buy the screen, then down the road buy the bezel. It adds up, but I know I would never have handed over $1200 or more in one go.
I have Garmin's top of the line portable GPS in my car just incase, loaded with "Morgan Freeman's" voice..which I'll miss when this project is all said and done
