    Hi mate your bezel looks fantastic - I was thinking of fitting a 7" touchscreen into my E39 (I have a 530i Sport), but was put off by the 'all one colour' approach that everyone seems to have taken. Yours is different in that the coloured 'flap' is integrated with the bezel so it all blends in nicely - I would love to see a photo of this completed - keep us updated!

    PS - fancy making me one of these beauties?

    Thanks jonnybump. I had to modify my bezel since those last pictures but I think it looks pretty good. That shiny flap was quite hard to integrate so that it looks OEM. That's why I had to paint it over. I send some pictures when I have time.

    No more zoomed than pic above but I can take some if you want to see the surface of the bezel.

    I mean the other way, wideangle, so that I can see how the lines suit the rest of the dash.

    it looks a lot like the e46 bezels from srctrc and that german fellow janis or something.

    What paint did you use? What steps did you take to get it painted like that?

    I used SEM texture paint and after that normal matt black. SEM texture paint gives nice OEM look surface.
