I am installing a carputer in a 92 525i and want to install a 7 inch touch screen where the current radio is. In order to do this, I want to move the climate controls down under the ashtray to give me enough room for a double din. Apparently, per other posts, this has been done before, but I can't find any useful information about who has done it and how they did it. Does anyone know of anyone who has moved the climate controls?

5mall5nail5 over at www.bimmerforums.com has a trick dash set up. I believe he uses his for turbo/megasquirt purposes, but the idea remains the same......

Go search his user name....it's an Island Green 525i with Mickey Thompsons.....hard to miss.

Eliminated

Looks to me like he just eliminated the controls. I'm not willing to do that. I guess I will just need to tear into it and see what I can do. Will probably have to extent the cables with bicycle brake cables to get the additional length needed.

The actual sliders are inside the dash. He just set them all at full. I don't know about you, but I never touch my sliders anyways. I just shut the fan off. Other than getting rid of something, you are going to have a hard time though. Kinda like putting 2 quarts of jelly in and 1 quart jar. It just ain't gonna fit!
