    I don't know what you're talking about. What NAVI trim? You don't think I used the oem nav to make this do you?

    DAAAAAAAAMN....My bad.....I always though you used the NAVI unit trim as a base......If that's not the case, then you are my new God.

    Damn...Sorry about that...!!!!

    By NAVI unit trim, I meant the OEM NAVI unit's faceplate...since it already has a cutout for the NAVI screen.....I thought you just Bondo-ed the holes for the knobs and stuff and trimmed/dremeled the screen opening to fit your screens.

    LOL I wish! I searched the BMW ETK and the only way to get your hands on the OEM NAV trim is to buy the entire NAV indash unit. That would cost a few hundred dollars. Either that or find a non-working unit at a salvage yard.

    If that was the case, I'd have a motorized flip down monitor like the OEM widescreen NAV.

    This one didn't take too long cause I started with my original trim from the pioneer LCD.

    I've got an E36, but I need ideas as to how you guys securely mount the screens to the faceplates/consoles. Here's a quick and crappy PSHOP of what my install will look like. I'm trying to locate a screen with no buttons and plain black frame so it looks as close to stock as possible.
    You could try the TM-700VGA from digitalww.com or the Lilliput because they come with remotes so you prolly won't need to use the buttons. Then just mount it behind the opening so only the LCD shows through. What size is that opening?

    Thanks Rich...Yea, I actually had my eye on that one, but someone I'm talking to has a brand new Farenheit 7" screen he's looking to sell cheap. If the deal doesn't work out, I'll most likely get that unit from DigitalWW.

    The opening I have is about 7 5/16" wide x 5" tall.

    First let me say, that is really IMPRESSIVE srcstc..... Amazing looking face.... I actually like the first version show on you site better, the buttons and what I assume is an IR port are impressive...

    If I owned a BMW I would most definately buy one from you, but I don't... Damn Corvette, I hate it already....
