    installing satnav

    Yeah I assumed that it would be simpler with the wiring loom already there And the hard part would be taking off the satnav and from the dashboard. am a novice so Evan a straight swap is challenging for me..

    installing satnav

    Hi piper, the thing that puts me off is the issue of taking off dash,seats,ect off the donor car to get the wiring looms then put it back together and same process on my car.. I'm a self employed builder working 7 days a week at the moment. it'll take me forever to do Having to figure out where all the bolts and nuts are to take off them remembering to put back..

    installing satnav

    Hi thank you for your reply.. I currently have a working dvd,tv,satnav at the moment which is in the donor car (2002 530i sport) Which I was gonna take all parts from.. but having the thought of removing all interior,ect on both cars has really put me off.. I'm gonna just but an aftermarket One and sell off the full system..

    installing satnav

    I didn't think it would be too complex.. just thinking if I have have take off dash,seats, ect to run looms.. my car just has the radio not even the cd changer.. the donor car comes complete with tv,dvd,satnav,tm
