Looks like a great panel to add an additional Power socket to as well - slightly out of sight, but easily accessible.

Yes and some other things.

Will be a place to go with a socket if you install the LeatherZ gauge package which takes the place of the stock cigar lighter.

Perhaps even some under-hanging gauges...

Smile I like that idea of putting receptable in that panel

I want to put the leather Z gauges if they do them, but I still want a power inlet. I'll have to pull out that panel on my 07 Z4 and look around in there.

Everyone please encourage AndyM that we will quickly sell at least 10 M/Z4 gauge panels. Then we can get the project going and at least break even.

I'm in.

Will be installing and documenting all of the senders soon so I'll need something to hold the gauges that go with it.

I believe my existing panel may pull loose while pulling an accessory plug out of a 12V power socket as it just pulls out too easily to be used for this. Perhaps the new one I have ordered will fit more securely.

My stock one was hard to remove for some reason.

The aux one is just like the stock one.
Looking at it, it can be easily fixed to stay in.
A plug will just make it in length wise so we will have to wait and see what space LeatherZ takes up.

When you do, see if there is a gray tag on the aux-in harnesss and get the numbers off of it. That way we can purchase the harness instead of making one up.

I'm wondering if a fairly stock hanging gauge pod could mount on the panel next to the Aux Input jack, leaving the ash tray alone. One covered in sumptuous LeatherZ leather, of course.

I'm in on the gauges. Ron I'm up on Long Island for Christmas, so I won't be able to check the aux. harness part number for another week, but I will check it after I get home.

Instructions 82 11 0 142 174

Will be ordering the harness in this kit.
Not sure if it has the four pin connector for the aux-in connector end.
My guess is yes. If not, I stock the four pin connectors and pins.

The harness in this kit does not have the four pin connector on the aux-in end.
Will wait to see what KC finds.

Removed the vent and radio. My radio has the 12 pin black connector mentioned.
First time I see a locked antenna connector. Good idea.

This is the aux-in I purchased for my installation. It has the 12 pin connector pictured here for use on the radio end. Upon installation, there was an existing 12 pin connector installed at the required installation location which had two wires connected to it. I had to remove the connector and move those two wires into the same pin positions on the new 12 pin connector. I think these two wires are part of the NAV audio connection.

That's funny, because my panel is so loose it is practically falling out on its own. Next service at the dealer it was going to be one of the items on my checklist to have them deal with. However, this thread has got me thinking to deal with it on my own.

I just installed the aux-in one and it too is tight like my stock one.
The flex tabs go on top.

Remind me tomorrow when you come over and I'll show you how it goes.

Got my '07 Aux-in parts today. Interesting how they add the jack to the removable panel via that large insert. I didn't get the harness again so I've got to wire and install the 4 pin connector that connects with the jack insert. I assume the schematic posted earlier documents the pinouts. Looks like a good rainy Sunday afternoon job. Hope the new panel fits tighter than the old one did.

As mentioned my panels fit tight.

Dave Z stopped over today. Dave's panel is very loose. So loose it sort of falls out on its own. Didn't look into why.

Just pulled the panel off, and there are no...

numbers on the harness, There are three wires (yellow, black, and grey) and they are coming out of a large harness (all taped in black tape) that runs up to radio.

Assuming that you have the four pin connector at the aux-in end.

If so, is:

black going to pin 4
yellow going to pin 3
gray going to pin 2
