LCD screen source

Mine works but it's got big dead spots. Replacement sources are all around $US200 which seems excessive for a dumb panel.

Suggestions? Cheapest I've found is here: https://www.germanaudiotech.com/prod...reen-lcd-glass

I tried swapping the screen out a number of years ago. You have to be careful to get the correct viewing angle. The one I bought said it was for an X5, but the viewing angle was for a car with the screen mounted lower in the dash. I had to lean forward to see most of the screen. Sent it back and bought an Avin Avant 4. Much better and brings the electronics closer to "up to date". I think the screens were $200 a few years ago, so that hasn't changed. The extra spent on the aftermarket unit was well worth it.

Dang, that is an expensive system! Nice, but not now.

I bought one off eBay that claims to be NOS (but it's coming from China, uhhhh sure it's NOS). $125. It'll get here in a month probably.
