    Just an update...installed an IBUS controller from www.reselers.de/IBUS and can now use my steering wheel controls to volume up/down, change tracks/xm stations, mute, last track

    It's so much nicer being able to use my steering wheel controls.. if you have a way of doing it, I highly recommend.

    Now I need to see what else I can get out of IBUS

    yeah the IBUS seriously makes the whole carpc worth the effort....it makes it so easy to use

    What else do you anticipate being able to use the IBUS for?

    I'm not really sure what else I can get out of the IBUS. Can you maybe write to the OBC? Maybe somehow display a meter showing nav trip distance left? Dunno, maybe that's just overcomplicating things.

    Have you used your IBUS for anything other than the standard stuff?

    Just read about your xenarc being stolen and all.. pretty late but sorry to hear about that. Did you ever get to finish your install? Have any pics of how you have everything setup?

    Looks fantastic - I'm especially interested in what you end up doing with the trunk liner to cover it all up. I'm at the same point, and have been putting it off.

    So, no FM radio? Did your car have Harman Kardon or not? Using stock amp/speakers?

    Yeah, I'm interested in seeing what I do to cover it up too Might try to put something together this weekend.

    Yes, it is HK. I'm using a Peripheral SVEN4 along with a scosche bmw harness adapter. Just had to solder a few wires to match up the adapter with the SVEN4 then plug it in where the headunit plugged in. In order for the amp to turn on, you have to loop the antenna wire with the remote trigger wire on the SVEN4.

    I haven't gotten a FM tuner yet.. still looking to see what would work best. So far though, I'm leaning towards a Hauppauge FM/TV tuner card..

    also, there's no body kit. Only modifications so far are the carputer and angel eyes.

    AFAIK, the IBUS is used mostly for the head unit functions. I am pretty sure the OBC stuff is separate. Maybe I'm wrong? Writing to the OBC would definately be a cool feature!!! Or even writing the current song title to the OBC display...those would be questions for the pros on the hacktheibus forum...

    I've only used my IBUS to interpret the steering wheel controls.

    I've finished v2.0 of my install but just got new hardware for version 3.0 THIS version (hopefully the last) should really be nice. I'm changing out the hardware at the moment so I don't have any pics of v2 - but will post v3 as soon as it is done! I'm not working or going to school right now so I've got plenty of time to be doing v3

    Cool, looking forward to seeing updates on it

    I started thinking about it and I might end up doing a plexiglass case for it in the trunk instead of the original idea of a carpet covered wall/box. Will post progress pics once I get started on that.

    Are you at all planning on going mini-itx anytime? If so you should just hold off on making a case/enclosure for your other MB maybe...just an idea
