You're right about already having the TV module.

Have you looked at the price of the switching module for the cars without TV module, don't know if thats cheaper or easier.

Good writeup. I love the DIY threads with pictures. I had a wireless backup cam on the H1 with the camera bracket using the license plate screws. It took 30 minutes to install and it had a feature where you could select it at anytime, not only in reverse. I had the three and half inch screen and on the road, I have to admit it was distracting. I loved the low light quality it had and on an H1 there were lots of places to mount it. My biggest fear with the M5 is that I would hate to ruin the lines of the beautiful interior, cut the dash or cut my forward vision by mouting it on the dash. To each their own, but I like that OEM look. Nice write up!

Plenty of lubrication is the key to threading the wire through the grommet! Without any it's impossible.

before i start ,is the flex part thats visable able to be pulled out from the car and the boot lid
just so you can see the wires as you thread or is it complete.i stuck my hand under to the start of the grommet and
now have sticky tape gunk all over my hand yuck.

You can't easily get the grommet out. One end is easy, that just goes through a single piece of metal in the boot. The other end goes through two pieces, about 1 inch apart and about 90 degrees off axis! You can release to outside part to gain alittle flexibility, but getting the inside part off is not at all easy and I'd imagine getting it back on is worse. But as the inside part is the last bit, once you poke through that you can pull the wire through without too much dificulty.
