    As far as I know, no bus system exists on the early 8-series.
    I have problems with my MID (display) and would like to integrate it in a carpc-project, so if you find any info I'm eager to read it.


    What is the status of your CarPC? Any pictures available?
    I'm only still in the planning phase.. I want a pc in the car, but don't want to damage the original car to much. Thinking of a VGA/TS in the dash, with a portable in the trunk. (I have a tabletPC)

    Dude wanted to know status of jump.
    535i doesn't look like 8-series.

    Thanks for the tip on Lion

    hehe, sama, seems like my last remarked kicked somewhere where it hurts.

    Congrats on the new car!


    I checked out the work you did to the centre console.
    Very nice. A piece of beauty in the making.
