    BMW e39 540i6 carpc build

    I've noticed theres not much e39's out there with a carpc!

    Gear:
    MOBO/CPU: Intel BOXD525MW Intel Atom D525@ 1.8GHz (Dual Core) BGA559 Intel NM10
    Memory: Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 4GB DDR3 DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel
    Storage: 250GB SATA 2.5" HD (upgrading to a SSD in the near future)
    Power: M2-ATX-HV 140W
    Display : Lilliput UM-70/c/t 7" touchscreen.
    Front End : CF3 w/ Nav
    Add-ons/Accessory: WiFi, Bluetooth, Ipod, 500GB removable storage.

    So the build began today as the parts started to roll in. Power supply and GPS receiver will be arriving tomorrow and the screen hopefully on Friday or Monday the latest. I will post pictures as I progress in this build. So far, I have fiberglassed the glove box to accommodate the hardware(mobo/cpu, Hard drive, power supply) and also fabricated the removable storage in between the two heated seat controller.

    I will post pictures of these tomorrow! But for now, some pictures of my car.

    Enjoy!
