    iPad 2 Installation in E46 M3 Convertible

    Posted it on E46fanatics. Posting it here to get some feedback

    I finally finished my iPad 2 installation in my 04 M3 Vert. Here are some videos I posted on YT. Feel free to comment. This is my 3rd design and it is probably the last time I will modify. I really like the way this installation came out. It took me about 4 days to do this.

    Part 1: Custom cradle with actuator

    Part 4: OBD-II Dashcommand App

    Thanks to everyone on the forum with installation ideas.

    Let me know what you think.

    Nice instal.
    If mine turns out half as good I'll be happy.

    With the car apps I have mine all on the first screen so I don't have to go into folders to find them.

    That's impressive. When I suggest an iPad install some say you need a truck, or destroy your dash. Not so...

    Thanks guys. I am really happy with the install. I bought extra new air vent and the center trim for this project. It costs me about $30. I can always return my car back to stock if I decide to take this out. The hardest part was the actuator part. I got a lot of ideas from other installs on this forum. Glad everything worked out.

    I built the cradle myself to fit the car.
