    Hey! Recently bought myself a BMW 530d xDrive 2011. Everything on the car is great, and i really love the car! The one thing that is "wrong" with the car, is that when you use the top view camera function, de left side of the car on the screen is very bluish in color. You can still see, but...

    Hey! I made this account solely because I am attempting to get a backup camera for my boyfriend for Christmas. I have NO idea where to start, nor who to ask... so I am hoping I can find some guidance here! He currently drives a 2005 530i. If I ask him, he will obviously know why I'm asking -...

    I installed the AVIN display and not only does it look better than the 6.5in, but the touchscreen is a nice addition. I also added the CarPlay dongle and it works decently well. There are some slight latency issues after it has been used for a short while. It seems to be something an updated...

    I have read the two great posts about the surround view retrofit on F30s (3-series), but I have a 2018 430i Gran Coupe that I have collected a bunch of parts to begin the surround view retrofit, and I realize there are minor differences. I am wondering if anybody has done the retrofit on the...

    Hi Guys, Was wondering if any of you have this issue on your 5 series... Sometimes when I'm reversing or parking and approaching an obstacle, the camera changes from the normal view to birds eye view which I find VERY annoying, but can't seem to disable this and its activation is very...

    Hello guys, I recently became the proud owner of a 2014 530d GT.
