I think there is an adjustment procedure I have seen somewhere. I think it's on the unit not the LCD. Mine did not require any adjustments. I just did this for tinkering purposes. I purchased the unit with the bad LCD for $30 and had a spare good LCD. It's good for keeping my mind at peace in these current times. I do want a widescreen NBT looking android unit for my X5. I do have an NBT setup but the retrofit wiring is expensive...

Ya, I found that too, but it is for older model LCD's. The ones for the 2006 don't have the adjustment.

Ahh good to know. I was not aware of a difference...

It's the goto if you order from TireRack: they ask at checkout which installer you want to have them sent. Kind of handy when talking 4 SUV tires they aren't small.

Four 235s fit perfect in back of e53 I seem to recall I couldn't fit four 255s in behind the back seat.

I have the rack on the back so it's no prob to carry four wheels rims or not. I took seven tired rims to recycle the other day. (about [email protected] FYI). It was 20 less a pound for the chrome played ones but those were 20s so the price per was about the same.

Yeah but APO postmaster is total twatwaffle and no oversized pkgs are accepted. I can also tell you that a USPS large flat rate box is $68.00 USD up to 5lbs, so I had to order from Al Nahgi BMW services.

What did you do to / for your E53 today??

I had a helluva time to ship four mounted tires from PA when I won an eBay "local pickup" when I convinced the seller to ship if I made all the arrangements.

Bought four perfect rims and three very good condition tires (70% tread) for $201.50 (she didn't have a reserve price).

It cost more to ship ($250 or so) but by finding a discount shipper I saved over $100 vs. FedEx or UPS directly (which was a hoot because the discounter used FedEx).

I can't figure out how the big sellers ship tires for shipping included!

Fortunately I found a replacement for the one rear toe shredded tire for about $100.

So 201.50+250+100=551.5 for a full set of rims and Dunlop Winter tires was an incredible deal.

The seller included the original receipt of $3600 in the sale.

Volume shipping discounts are *massive*.

Quite obviously but $350 to free is not just massive it's ludicrous.
