What a great deal!
One Q: What kind of output connection does the cam have? Since I won't be installing it in an OEM screen, this would be helpful to know. I'll click through Bimmerboard's... unique... display of threads, and track down the specs. If an answer is needed sooner rather than later, I'm in! If anything changes for me before the order is made, I'll edit here.
Thx for the heads up!

I got a camera off Ebay last week.The connections on the camera are 2 RCA plugs.One has the video out ,the other is RCA gives you power positive(+) and ground (-).
On the power connection the positive is always the inner tip.I found it easier to cut off the RCA plug to access the 2 wires and to connect to my reversing light positive and the other wire to ground.

I'm interested. That is very cheap.

Still not sure where I am going to mount it. I like the OEM location but would need to fabricate a bracket.

what else would you need aside from the camera to make it work? I am in

Before I say yes to this (and believe me I want to) what does one need besides the camera in order to connect it up? I.E is it as simple as connecting it into a jack at the back of my car and connecting the power?

I have a 2001 X5 with nav / DSP / Dension ICE I-Pod

To make this work you will also need to have the BMW video module installed.

Our VSM kit would work as well, as long as the camera has an RCA jack at the end of the wiring (hard to tell from the pictures).
