    My Skin under construction: BMW Style

    Hi, I'm making a new skin for my E46 bimmer. It's inspired from those images found on a thread originaly made for Centrafuse but never release:





    And this is my skin:


    It's not a really complete, I actualy done 65% of the skin, and I don't know when it will be finished

    You can see the skin in this video:

    Probably an iBus controller of some sort. Like this one. Works only for BMW and Mini however.

    @AzN_Tuan: Nice job on the skin. Also the white dashboard illumination is a nice touch. I see you got the LTS working. Never managed to do this on my E39...

    Hi, I used the Resler's iBus interface in serial mode, it works just fine like you see, i'm very happy to use it!

    The Light Test Sequence in iBusRR. Or did you use another way to make the lights come on in that funky style?

    Total n00b question:

    How did you get the steering wheel controls linked up?
    Presuming you don't have a head unit...
