Has anyone ever installed one of these?

I have the DICE Mediabridge now, and while I like it, I would love to have a better looking screen like this. It seems to cheap to me, wondering if anyone has tried it out. It was actually one of the sponsors on this board.

Hi Eonon,

Do you know for sure it will not work in an E38 or is it just that you have not tested it in an E38?

Hi guys, thanks for your interest.
Yes, we have not tested it in an E38 yet.

Could you please PM me your email address, which year your car made and with one picture of your car dash and the power plug of your car?

So that i can confirm with our techs and will let you guys know the result soon.
Thanks a lot!

Eonon let me know the answer is no. Other forums indicate there is an airbox in our E38's which the E39/E53 don't have which blocks installation.

Hi guys, after confirmed with our techs, regret to tell you that we don't have specific Car DVD unit for E38 at present.

But since you guys are all interested, i have reported to our manager, hope we will have specific Car DVD unit for E38 in the future. So please keep an eye on our website : www.eonon.com

Thanks a lot for your support again!

Just bringing this back alive, I wouldnt mind one without the optical drive either. I wonder how much this one misses fitting by.
