    I didn't yet. If I find a way to do so, I probably will. But for now they only illuminate. For the volume to work it should be possible to take apart a griffin Powermate and integrate this in the bezel. I've seen this done before on these forums by someone from canada with an X5. I'm planning to get an iBus adapter to make the buttons on the steeering wheel work. Then the buttons on the bezel aren't that important anymore. It would be kind of cool if I could make them work however.

    I would like it if you put the skin in a zip file very much. I just bought a beemer and was wondering what skin i would use, and I like those colors very much.

    I have no problem with it but I would have to check with Enforcer if he agrees with it. The original skin is made by him, so... You can also download his original one. He's working on a night skin too and that one probably will be better then mine. If it's ok for him I will make a zip file of it (still haven't done it ) and send it to you.

    It's OK I got it. The email is also redirected to another account, which didn't have enough space for it. Which is why you probably got the error.

    Ok, I've had a look at the skin, I like the idea you've had with the menu screen. It was starting to annoy me that there was no voulume, next track etc controls on it. May look into 'nicking' part of that idea for future releases.


    You seem to have lost all my formatting lines from the skin files, which will knock out some of iDrive config's abilities.

    I'll have a look at the plugin for winamp tomorrow when I am at home. Hopefully it will be embeddable in some way.
    I'm in the process of redesigning the downloads side of my website, so hopefully I will have your version up for download in the next couple of days for those that would like to download it.

    cheers

    So do the factory buttons on the bezel actually do anything? Can you change the volume with the knob for example?
