Which part, the rotating emblem or adding a backup camera? I just installed a backup camera in my 550i a couple weeks ago that works perfect, but it takes the place of the license plate light.

In addition to the camera you need the video adapter. I'll be selling mine shortly. PM me if you're interested.

Hi, Maxwell4321

It is your car? If yes, how can you pass the LVDS image of the camera to analog image?

Many thanks,
Rúben Ferreira

Might help everyone if you posted your car model and year in your profile.

CIC does not have a video input option. It still needs a video adapter. A different one but still needed.

yes it does. the rear view camera emulator kits come with the adapter. IIRC the CIC actually has 3 video inputs.

I've put 3 CICs in e64 cars and never see this option anywhere. Do you have a link?

Interesting had not seen that before, but not the solution I wanted regardless. Limited function and requires OEM kit ($$$).

The OEM does not allow any other input to the screen except the reverse camera. I like that I can bring my phone on the screen and my aftermarket TPM system and more.

My video adapter gives me reverse camera, plus 3 additional inputs with audio switching.

To each his own.

Right. I usually prefer OEM solutions. I tried the multimedia interface but found the video quality to be poor
