    E39 Touch Screen Head Units

    They told me the power would be increased from the puny 25w up to 45 or 50w. Is this a big improvement Luke ? I have already changed the standard front speakers for an Infinity set up with tweeters but obviously the standard BM54 output doesn’t really push them.

    This was the original plan when the BM54 started playing up. Already been in contact with them to discuss the upgrade and have some phono’s added. But then the nav drive (mk4) started being glitchy as well so thats why I’ve started looking at these Xtrons/Eonon units. The quote from Cartronics to fix both units is more expensive than the link to the one I’ve posted above.

    Thanks for the input guys. @Chris28 that looks really good but not really what I’m after. I loathe getting rid of my OE setup so anything that replaces it must look at least similar

    Busterbvi are these not the same then for considerably cheaper ? Whats the average price for the 5m lead to link screen to boot anyone ? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F332883442007
  5. I know this topic has been covered a few times but I’m useless at searching for stuff (just ask the mrs ) I really wanted to keep my OE nav and screen setup but it seems I’m fighting a losing battle with my BM54 and the nav works when it wants too but is still dated. So I have been looking at the touchscreen ones on the ‘bay but bewildered by the choice. I don’t want to pay a lot cos I’m tight so no NBT or anything fancy. Hopefully I can sell my mint widescreen OE unit for £100-£120 so ideally I will only want to add another couple of hundred to it. I want an Android based one yes ? Heard talk about these Eonon units, anyone have any reviews about these ? Also what’s the going rate for the extra lead I need to connect to my multiplayer in the boot ? Tia, Chris

    Strange noise !

    I’m thinking of something along those lines. Just found out it doesn’t do it all the time ! My friendly mech is going to have a look on Saturday so hopefully it’s something silly.

    Not 100% it’s not the box Dan but like I said it does not do it when stationary and reverse is selected only when I start to move .

    Strange noise !

    Morning chaps, I seem to be getting a strange noise when reversing. like a slight rattling, light grinding when I reverse car. Doesn’t happen when I just engage reverse (auto) only when I creep backwards ? Not had a chance to get it up on a lift yet so no idea exactly where it’s coming from. Handbrake assembly ? Although this is working, not brilliantly I might add. Any thoughts ?

    Noob question

    Just a quick one I have a 6 cylinder petrol engine. Which cylinder is number 1 ? Is this the first one (grill end) or do they start at the windscreen and work forward ? Noob question I know

    Will these fit ?

    I would rather sell them on than get that new one powder-coated Dan ! The polished lip is the look I want because it will enhance the width of the lip. Breaking through the powder-coat will be the problem I think ? I do have a spare wheel to practice on One refurber suggested bead blasting but could not provide anymore details ? What I need is a good old fashioned wheel polisher non of this new fangled diamond cut malarkey ! On a sidenote, I could not even polish my headlamps (even with a 3m kit and buying extra pads) and had to get a professional in to do it at the end because I could not get it 100%

    Will these fit ?

    I really am starting to wish I had never purchased these Breytons I seem to be getting nothing but heartache and frustration with one problem after another ! Firstly I had the buckled hub on one of them Then problems trying to get some center caps that actually fitted due to their oddball size. Now I cannot get the lips polished as I want (I don't want diamond cut) Just got off the phone after phoning (nearly) every wheel refurber in Bristol !! The problem is my spokes overhang the lip almost at the point where they touch the wheel. A diamond cutting machine will not get into that little crevice anyway and according to one wheel refurber there is not much call for polishing so they sold the machine. The brand new wheel I purchased from Germany came with a polished lip but the others look to be powder-coated inc lips.
