mmh yes but without throwing all out of the car, i bought this car only for the can bus, after that i plan to resell it so it would be nice that i can rollback to the original state.
I mean i already have my porsche, the bmw will only helps me to complete my project with the can bus management that unfortunately my car doesn't have.
You should read up on the ENORMOUS amount of BMWs done on this site.
And, it is not a CAN-BUS, it is an I-BUS. They are VERY different.
...I love the French language...especially to curse with...Nom de Dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperies de connards d'enculés de ta mère. You see, it's like wiping your *** with silk, I love it.
ok no can, but ibus, i wrote can as it's used to describe a bus where everything in the car is plugged on it and controlled with it
well about the rolling back i was pretty sure that the darn thing was completely melted with the dash, so it must be very tightly mounted, i will look at it closer.
Now about the posts it's nice to know that some braves already tried tampering with it. I was a bit reluctuant to dismantle the dash which looks so nice
Since you are not intended to do carPC, get a laptop/UMPC/tabletPC and one of those goose neck mount or proclip and call it a day. Hell, you don't even need any type of mount. Throw it on the passenger seat, plug in the power cord and you are done.
nope, no screen can fit, all is lost, just drop that hunk of junk off out here and ill take it off your hands....

I don't have a laptop at the moment but this is a good idea, maybe with a tiny pda this could be usefull as well for diags purpose and a minimalist service as gps and/or as a mp3/ogg player.
