Is that an active or passive screen. Some phones make the screen look different than it is in real life so that may be it. It just seems washed out to me. But it may just be the camera pics of it.

Fuzzy like or something.

Like the mounting though !

That's not the only big screen option for the e53 Wayne.
So I see. I hadn't spotted that screen.

It's a whopper, although not really that much larger than the 9" due to the aspect ratio of the screen (wider rather than larger overall).

But damn nice!!

Need a picture further away to see the whole dash.

And I agree the dash doesnít have enough contrast.

Have you ever seen the E46 M3 competition pkg trims? Something like this would be nice. Itís like a textured brushed/silver aluminum looking thing.

That's just the way it photographs on the phone. I can either take a super sharp shot of the screen up close. Or get a wider shot of the fitment and dashboard, but not both. Maybe I could play with the manual settings on the camera app, but I just snapped those quickly. In person, the screen is pretty darn sharp.

So far... I think it is going to fit the bill nicely. Correct on the wider aspect ratio, but it's a such a huge upgrade that it's perfectly fine. Especially for $350.

I'll take some after she's inside. Those were quick and dirty to get something up for you guys. I'll keep playing with the trim... I've got a bunch of different films here. I did a brushed silver and that was okay, but looked cheap to me. So the testing continues.

As long as its clear in person that's all that matters. I have seen screens that look fuzzy when photographed. So that's why I asked.

Oh yeah. I remember the "picaso channel" well. One boob in the upper left corner and one in the lower right corner. Good times!

I also remember the joke about when peoples sat dishes were pointed straight up you knew what they were watching and it wasn't hbo. Seems all of "those" channels were on that sat.
