    Just bought a 2010 1 series and don’t like the BMW business stereo. Seen a double din adapter but this means moving the heater controls. Is there enough wore to move it down? Is it advisable to move to a double din touch screen?? help appreciated

    Hi all, apologies for what may well be a repost, but I find searching very hard, it won't search the term e60. So I can't pull up what I need. I want to relive my youth with a good audio install. As I kid I had an Re xxx 12" in the boot off 4000w rms. Anyway, nothing that series, but I want a...

    As above does a normal double din head unit fit in a e46 because it looks like the plastic heater tubes or what ever they are called are behind the stereo thanks

    Mostly all discussions around single din upgrade on various forums are outdated so I just thought I post here my experience, sourcing parts and installing - this isn't really a guide since there are plenty other posts demonstrating what is required to remove existing head unit and its associated...

    I have just got off the phone from BMW in which they stated that they no longer stock the centered fascia to support an after market single din head unit. The only option that I am aware of is to use the off centered fascia which IMO looks pretty tatty. Anyone know where else I can get one...
