e46 PC install
I want to install a carpc to play my mp3's and video's but I don't want to remove the factury head unit..
I have the following head unit
I also have an old PII laptop hanging around so I'm guesing that I have the most expensive parts already..
What I would ideally like to do, is to put the laptop in the boot, plug it into the loom (I think I can plug it into the I-BUS lead of the CD changer) and bobs your uncle..
What I don't want to do is have to start pulling my car apart (dash out etc)
Can someone with more experience on this tell me if I am talking a load of bo**ox??
Many thanks in advance
i have installed a laptop into my e46 318i.
i also ran into the problem of connecting to my existing audio.
what you need is a device called car2pc http://car2pc.com/index.html. allows you to plug directly into your cd changer plug. and run audio through your factory amp/speakers.:)
Can you get power for the laptop off the lines of where the cd changer would be?
