    Hi there, So lately a friend gave me an idea to get a DAB radio in my e92 2007 bmw 325i 3.0 but engine doesn't really matter here lol. I'm a bit ocd about sticking everything to the OEM parts and looks, so having an antenna on the windscreen or even a little bit visible is a no no for me...

    Hello Bimmers, I am about to try Dynamic Cruise control retrofit (SA544) on a E60 523iA LCI from May 2007 ECE. To the world's surprise, this car - even being a 5 series - came without cruise control. I already did some coding and programming on my E46 but that ain't like the E60 here :) I...

    I bought myself a 6 cd changer thinking it would just be a plug in job. How wrong can you be ? I can manage the fibre optic wiring but have I really got to give a dealer £120 just to tell the car it's now got a cd changer ?

Looking for an F48 with a front end collision and it has broken headlights, but they are halogen, so will need to change them anyways. So would it be possible?
