Hey Rich, what about a little indentation, like the E46 piece? I love the trim piece, but I feel it looks too plain.

What do you think of this?..

- those were my exact thoughts. I like how your photoshop version looks much better.

The PAC lets you use your steering wheel buttons with the AVIC-D1.

I am seriously considering doing this mod and am mapping everything out. You took the words out of my thoughts. I was JUST thinking again this AM if it had the line to go with the contour of the interior line. I line the NON wood black plastic, it looks good, but an indentation would be PERFECT!

Benathon,
Unless I am mistaken, if you do NOT have DSP, then you can hook he head unit directly up to the speakers with no extra amps. It's the DSP version that has amps that need the head unit.

Thanks, that's what I thought. Car Toys said they could build a trim piece identical for about $40 dollars. I'm interested in seeing what it would look like compared to what these members have. I have seen Car Toys work and it looks excellent.

couple of questions, alright, so the bmw business cd is taken out, so im assuming the dvd player in the navi can play cds also. what about am/fm and more importantly, the oem allows usage of bluetooth and lets you dial on it. do these options come on the system that you have built?

im thinking about doing what you did, except i need the following
am/fm
bluetooth
cd player

how did you get the lcd headrests? did you do it yourself, and also , how are they connected and waht are they connected to? im assuming via just regular video in and if so, does that mean that when the navi is displaying nav, thats what comes up on the lcds also?

also, i talked to gerber, they said that they could do a fake wood bezel with a flip up cover to protect the navi from theft for about 100-150. i think i would def go that route

thanks for the help
