I did a bit of custom installation work to mount a single tweeter. I used the one they sell for use on the rear deck of the E60. This model has an oval flange surrounding the actual driver. That...

Another option: Code out the TPMS in favor of the FTM

My 2007 650i recently had its TPMS begin acting up and my wheel sensors checked out OK - and of course I checked and maintained proper tire pressure. I run non-RFT Michelins. So, like these guys...

F4 Pilot,

You are getting good gouge on the thread so far. Check the part number on your Sirius tuner which located behind panel on drivers side of the trunk. Run that on RealOEM.com or similar...

Thumbs up BAVSOUND Stage One and Ghost Subs in E63 DIRAC Amp

I retrofitted the full 752 setup into my car a year ago. While the head room increase was dramatic I still did not like the clarity of the highs, just too much sibilants for my taste.

So, working...

Connect that Shield Wire

Read the post (#303) you made just prior to the one where you asked this question. You have it figured but your RCA cable has no woven shield just under the rubber casing?

I remember my own CIC...

New plugs

From an E63 owner...Technic offers good stuff

Guys,

While I am also interested in possible upgrade paths for the newer F bodies I must say that Technic's parts and info made a stunning sound difference for me in deep bass. Not boomy crap,...

Consider the early 650i cars?

Some of the 645i 4.4L engine issues were sorted when they went to the 4.8L in the 2006 650i. With the years passing and depreciation occurring perhaps you could make a good deal on an 06 or 07 and...

Ground?

Look carefully and check before doing this but...I think I am reading that you must ground that blue wire from pin 3 on TCU to the chassis to get the "cradle" to charge your iPod. Of course, if no...

eBay?

I am actually selling off my original CCC and related parts there right now... But don't buy it! Go the CIC retrofit route and never look back, what a great upgrade!

Bottom View - Right

Those air gaps are gone... As long as the eye is not drawn to it, this looks like a properly-molded snap-in piece to adapt the newer controller to the complex 3-D shape of the E63/4 console.

99% There?
