wow... looks great!!
Well, I was a bit reluctant to do this since there have been several BMW installs posted, in particular the E46 body style (which mine is of course). But I thought it turned out pretty well so I thought I would share.
First off I want to give a big shout out to Mike at Primier Autosound located here in Chesapeake, VA. He did the install of the CarPC and a few other items (pics below). He also did the finishing work on the bezel which turned out really nice, giving the car the OEM finish that I wanted.
I also want to a give a shout out to mattlocked for making the V1 interface. The V1 interface is main feature of my CarPC because it allows me to have a stealth install.
First, the hardware. Noth too earthshattering here, just some pretty common stuff:
- Xenarc 7" Touchscreen monitor
- VIA M10000 Motherboard w/512MB Ram
- M2-ATX Power supply
- Travla C138 Case modified to hold M2-ATX power supply
- Blue Tooth (USB dongle)
- iBus interface (not installed yet)
- CarPal OBD II Bluetooth Interface
- V1 Hardware/Software integration
Now the pictures.....
First the car.....2005 Imola Red BMW M3
Next, the Stealth V1 install
Now you see it......
Now you don't......
Although not directly integrated with the CarPC, I also have the Blinder Laser Jammer installed (hint: the units are next to the licence plate)......
A little bit of thump in the trunk (since BMWs come with none from the factory)......
And without further adieu....the CarPC pics........
Now you see it.....
Now you don't....
wow... looks great!!
M3s are just damn nice cars. Only BMW I really like. I usually hate black rims too but I must say they look good on the shade of red. Very nice install. Clean and pretty much OEM looking. Only thing I might sugest is that you find some stock caret for teh sub box but if you like the contrast it looks good like that too.
Overall very nice install.
Audio - Performance Teknique 5.1 Digital Amp, Kappa Perfect 12" VQ
Nice install, sweet bezel work!!
do you have wet okole seat covers in your m3?!?
Also, how is the V1 working with that unit mounted so low and partially covered?
Subaru WRX Wagon
