    Got the HVAC part

    Well, just got back from BMW. It took them 5 days to get my console replacement part (for moving the HVAC). Once I start that installation I'll add more photos and docs.

    Ok, a little ****ed...

    So I called Eagle day and it turns out they don't have what I wanted after all. Good thing they didn't ship it yet! Why would anyone want the LCD mounted off to the side like that? Answers would be very much welcome :-)

    Back in business...

    I learned from a guy I called from Bavarian Autosports that there are LOTS of 3rd party companies that make the adpater. I also learned that it MUST be offset because there simply isn't enough room in there for the radio otherwise.

    Soooooooo....
    I call around and it turns out you can get one from BEST BUY of all places. I am going to get mine from a place called Sound Advice which is close to me. I suppose I could check out best buy on the way..

    THe great part... The BMW part is $34-$39 dollars. The after market part is $17-20. THe wife will be please hehe...

    I think I'll have to mount something cool like a powermate knob in the extra area LOL.

    Thanks to the poster who helped me out on this one!!!

    Sweet

    I have started my own project (2001 330i), I bought the opus 150 and Xenarc 7 inch tsv since i just got my tax return now im going to finish my machine. Im from New Jersey so its not very warm, once the weather gets warmer me and a buddy will begin the custom trim, thats the hardest step to me, i have no skills in the area, but he says he does so we will see.

    I think my first step will be to strippdown my trunk as well, and store everything in my friends garage until complete. I'll post pics soon, or build a website or something.

    I also enjoy long walks on the beach

    Most Home Depots/Lowes carry the Dremel accessories, including the drill press. They're usually stored on the higher shelves, in the power tools area, where you have to crane your neck to see them.

    Dremel - the ultimate tool.
