    BMW e46 w/Mac Mini (mobyCar)

    Hi guys,

    Thought I'll share some pic of the install.

    Features:

    1. Steering wheel integration
    2. Knob control (iDrive style)
    3. Dashboard software for Mac Mini
    4. Moulded Bezel but leather wrapped.

    More pics @ http://www.mobycar.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=54









    Cheers!

    the original piece looks like that, we've moulded a few pieces with plastic, so its strong and light...

    the molded peice looks really nice. but I think you need to wrap to leather tighter and dont use foam inbetween.

    yeah when we wrapped it, it was fine... i'm not sure if the heating and contraction while in the car had anything to do with it...

    sorry to post whore but the top of the trim peice looks like its sagging down and the corners dont match the openings.
