Re: 2000 M5 MKII to MKIV Upgrade
Here are the pics from my widescreen install. Nothing too tricky here other than unclipping the 4:3 trim ring. There are 2 screws on either side of the trim piece and then use the screwdriver to pull up on the brass locking mechanisms and the piece comes right off. I had this piece off before and forgot about the locking mechanism. Chipped off a large piece of the wood trim trying to pry before I remembered! I guess I won't be selling the trim. Anyway, the widescreen works like a champ even though I think a wood trim ring would look nicer. Oh yeah, there are 2 screws top and bottom holding the unit in the car. Pretty easy to get to the top screws, but easier to get to the bottom 2 with the screen tilted down in tape insert mode.
