I like the looks of that camera location! Great job! Was it hard to run the wire out the taillight wire grommet? That is very custom and very nice. I will have to think about that for my permanent location if I can get up the nerve to drill my taillight. Thanks for posting those pics.

I hope you get the interference thing worked out. Let us know what happens when you try another brand of camera.

Again, great job!

I like the install on the rear light ,you just got to ensure that you waterproof it with a rubber "o" ring.I am now limited to getting a camera with 25mm diametre because I drilled the light!
We perform the same mod, only with the infared cameras:

With a bit of patience and some lubricating oil ,(you clean the wire after you pulled it thru),it is rather easy to run the wire thru the grommet.The most difficult is to run the video wire with the RCA plug.We cut the grommet a little to facilitate but then taped it back again .
If you do decide to go this way,the most important factor here is to ensure that you have a tight waterproof fit.We used a a very thin conical rubber "o" ring that fills the hole we made on the foglight perfectly.Before we installed the rear light on the car we did a garden water hose test for leaks.

I wish to thank you for giving me Martins contact at BimmerNav.He has been very helpful and I am discussing my interference issue with him!

Other places where you can mount your camera are the oblvious Roundel(still my favorite and if I get a small cam I may decide to alter my cam location.The other is buy a PDC support and fit your cam there and place
it between your existing PDC sensors and it will look like you have a third one!

Be in touch

This group buy is over; however, you may want to contact Martin and see if he has any more of these cameras. If not, you can order one on your own and it won't cost too much more.

Did anyone find another source for these cameras? I emailed Martin but he doesn't have any, and I emailed the company but received no response...
