I have to disagree with the assumption that my Avin Avant-4 looks ghetto. If the OP just wants to stream music via A2DP Bluetooth and have a Bluetooth hand-free phone solution only without changing any existing components currently in his X5 then the BlueBus is the way to go.

However, if the OP wants to take his X5 to the next level with navigation and a multitude of additional features, then the open source Android operating system Android Avant-4 would be the way to go with costs being very similar.

Now about the look of my my ghetto X5...

I suspect that this is the look that was being referred to...



And I'd have to agree with the description! (I think I just threw up a little bit...)

The Avant-4 on the other-hand, is about as factory-looking as it gets!!

Avin Avant 4 it will be.

Now I just have to find someone who can send it to Sweden to avoid taxes and custom fees. Anyone from California that can help??
