Mein Auto: 07 e90 328i
Question e90 328i audio

So I have a non idrive 328i and I'm wanting navigation, bluetooth, frankly all the audio bells and whistles. I'm not going to do the idrive retrofit because I don't have the time or money to complete such a big task.

So my question is does anyone have any experience with the andrive system an9x? It seems to be the best aftermarket head unit that maintains the oem style look and still gives you all the controls and read out like the stock head unit. Hopefully someone has used this product here in the states all the info I find is overseas in Europe.

the dynavin n6 seems to be the Head Unit of the day if you
want an OEM look .
There are side effects to aftermarket head units in BMW's you need
to be aware of.

Also never heard of unit you are talking about.
There are many dynavin clones.
Yep it looks like another dynavin clone.

One of the most annoying side effects is BMW will not be able to hook up there
diagnostic computer for diagnositcs or software updates.
Also there can be error codes from SOS and or PDC if you have those options.

Thanks for the info. I thought about relocating the factory head unit to the trunk which I'll probably go ahead and do that if I can find a shop that will do it for a decent price.

I don't have sos or pdc so I shouldn't have to worry about the chimes or an error code. As long as I can easily change it back to factory I'm good.

I would read all the dynavin threads

I would read all the dynavin threads
the new n6 looks like its the best of this type .
If you are looking for better sound quality you still
need and amp and better speakers.
If you have L7 dynavin makes and adapter for that amp and
they are the only place that does.
The Hi Fi amp and speakers are kind of weak.

There are install DIY's for the Head Unit its not real hard
to do .
