By the way Thanks again jayster0966 I just received my Euro armrest that you recommend it. Anxious to put it on this evening
Yeah, that's the D99 unit with along with the Lumidock in the center console. Purchased from the "other" dealer though.

Glad you found the console you were looking for.

If I were to order this unit within the next couple of days will there be a wait for me or is it in stock and ready to go? Also about the back up camera, is it the one that goes into the tag light slot? If it is, will that LED that is next to the camera match the light output of my other LED tag light. They are very bright. Would you have some pictures possibly of the light output to compare?

I actually don't have pictures of back up camera light lit up. I know it replaces the light above the license plate.

Item is in stock and ready to ship!!. They are brand new and each unit is tested prior to shipment.

That is great news! I will probably be placing an order in the next couple of days. Where do I go to order specifically to get the free camera and free shipping? The links on your first post are not working for me.

Also I do not have DSP or Navi so this should be plug and play right? Does it come with all necessary mounting equipment and hardware so I do not need to purchase anything else to install it?

Sounds good to me. And I plan on installing it myself. Are instructions included and everything necessary for the install?

Also you posted this special at the perfect time. I've been eying the D99 for quite some time now and finally decided to get one for my birthday this year which conveniently was yesterday! When you posted this special! How ironic!

I donít want to ask an embarrassing question but I got to know lol. How do you tell if your vehicle is equipped with DSP (whatever that stands for)?
I am ashamed to say I didnít do my homework on this one

Maybe it was meant to be haha. Happy be-lated BIRTHDAY. The unit doesn't really have actual instructions on installing and removing the factory radio, but installation isn't too hard. I have a write up down that I can send you. Only thing is it is installation for an older Dynavin model. So installation will be similar but may be slightly different.

DSP stands for digital sound processing. Check out this website, should help explain a little better.

You can even call a BMW dealer and give them your VIN number.

Thank you! And that sounds good to me. I will be emailing you soon about more information as well as order information. Thanks!

If you did two days you would receive it Saturday, but Saturday delivery cost a lot more. We usually ship Fed Ex ground.

CD changer

Will this work with the factory 6 disc trunk CD changer?
And what about HD radio, none built in? Can it be added?

It will actually get there by Monday. The cut off time is usually around 4:00. Two days refers to two business days. It actually costs around $100 something for it to be delivered Saturday so I will go ahead and just ship it NEXT day for you since you already paid $45. Next day is ($60). Hope that works out for you. You will need to be home on Friday to sign for the package.

Please call me at 909 673 0098 ASAP, as I need to verify some information before I ship the package out.

This will not work with 6 CD changer. You can still upload music via SD CARD, USB DRIVE, iPod, stream via blue tooth, and mp3.

The HD radio is not included. Don't think you can add HD radio. Radio receptions are pretty clear.

I'd use FEDEX Home delivery ground service for residential deliveries. WIth 2 business days, FEDEX will deliver it on a Saturday, but only for residential address.

I agree but it is an extra fee you have to pay...which is quite hefty.

Do you have an idea of how long this special will be taking place and is there a good amount of units in stock or are they limited?

I will keep the special open for another couple of weeks or so? I have more than 10 in stock. I started with 50 about 3 weeks ago if that gives u a better idea of how quick they go. Dynavin unfortunately as a limited quantity in which it produces units.

Mein Auto: e39 2003 525i
I bought my 03 525i from a friend. I asked him what can I replace my stereo with and he told me about this Dynavin. He told me (at the time when he was looking at it) that it was around $400. As I am now looking I see that its now double. You say free camera and free shipping but its not free. The $900 is a mark up price so of course your going to throw in the "free" camera. With that price you should provide and amp and some upgraded speakers or at least throw in a 12". im just saying.
