Vin Needs His DirecTV

10/6/2006 7:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Vin DieselAction superstar and proud D&D freak Vin Diesel is making sure he doesn't miss any of his favorite shows while on the road.

The "XXX" star was spotted outside Los Angeles hot spot Area with an SUV complete with a KVH DirecTV automobile satellite. The rugged 5" high satellite gives you access to up to 185 channels while you cruise the open roads of the continental U.S. Available in black and silver, the satellite is the perfect addition to the road warrior who needs to keep his passengers entertained.

TMZ thought maybe we could trick out the company Astrovan with some sweet satellite TV action. We put a call into the world famous West Coast Customs from the MTV show "Pimp My Ride" to see what it would cost for the TMZ posse to cruise in the style that Vin Diesel is accustomed too. With a price tag of $14,000 to $16,000, we think we'll keep the Walkman we have taped to the dash as our entertainment for TMZ outings.

Maybe we can get Vin in on our carpool.

Nice "commercial" for DirectTV, TMZ. You could have at least edited the ad copy in the 1st paragraph to sound a little less like an ad.

Vin in the words of a Donna Summer song "If You've Got It, Flaunt It." Just tell your friends of Directv and rake in some moolah.

West Coast Customs doesn't work with MTV's Pimp My Ride anymore. Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) is the shop they're using now! : )

Is it that Damn serious? Look anyone can afford a KVH DirecTV in their car or SUV, if they truly wanted one. Vin is not the only who have a KVH DirecTV in his SUV. I am getting one as well. Everyone else.....Good luck with that.
