    How can i fit a 7" screen in this dash



    i really want to integrate a 7" into this dash, but im not sure how. The only i can think of is removing the gauges, moving the hvac controls down and putting the screen where the stereo and hvac controls are.

    Do you guys have any other suggestions?

    the only problem is the hvac knobs are bigger than the gauges so im not sure they will fin that location, but i can do some measuring once i pick up the car.

    Yeah, relocating the gauges would be the solution.
    Is that a Z4?

    should fit but also require a lot of work.
    Relocate the gauge is the only way.
    Glare is also suck at that viewing angle especially on a topless car.

    its actually an M Coupe, its a solid roof, so no open top glare



    also im thinking that i would buy a new/used dash piece and work on that, so i don't damage the stock one.

    you never know, he could do an amzing job.

    built-in's have the potential to look a thousand time better than a flipout. flipouts are the pussy way out just kidding.

    edit: IMO flipouts look cheap, anyway.

    edit2: and a flipout would block his a/c vents
