    how to take apart dash of e46 bmw

    I'm a n00b to this and I'm interested in makin a car pc out of an itx board, have a sat nav reciever n dvd drive etc.

    Now just a few questions. I have an 04 BMW so ideally i want to rip as little of it apart as possible, after reading about for ideas I found that I can get all the states from the car as if I had the screen that comes with the car. Now how easy is it to get to the one behind the dash and to locate the conector i need, n also how do i go about getting behind the dash without recking it n scratching it to pieces.

    the second thing is what is the easiest way to get the sound from the pc to the speakers in the car?

    Also if i connect to the i-bus what is the chance of it working with the e-90 (new 3 series) when its out as I'll be getting one of them

    Thanks for any help

    As far as im aware as long as its got the OBDII then you can connect to it, any BM after 96 has this. so it should go into your e90.
