Hey Sama, thanks for the pics of the screen, it looks almost a perfect fit!! good find.
Those 2 din adapters are gonna give a lovely finish by the look of it and will recess the screen slightly into the car which will be great for reducing sunlight glare!
Once the screen is in I doubt I will keep the wood trim, it is the same colour as the one you have, VAVONA, but there is a slight crack in the laquer. Not bad but still noticable... let me know if you still want it but I may still have plans for it yet ;-)
I want to keep the BMW computer aswell, now I was going to move into the gloebox but I have found a DIN sized motorised VGA touchscreen that I may be able to get in the gap and still keep the BMW computer. I know the Gap where the old BMW tape player is smaller than Din size but looking at the pics of the screen it only comes from the top half of the unit so I could mount the lower half behind the BMW computer. I would then attach the wood trim to the front/top of the screen as so when it is reclined the dash looks completely standard ... This prob does not make much sense, mind off on a tangent...need more beer!!
By the way Sama, e39dream, there is a great car forum dedicated to the 5 series Beemer, we would love you to come along and join. Im Darkspirit on the forum... http://forum.bmw5.co.uk/ see you there!
