Jack, I will sent some pics to you right away. Quite a few screws to remove the cd changer, radio module, and dsp amp.
Thanks spstack. I'll look forward to the pics.
By the way, do you have to remove all of those screws just to get to the trimble unit or are you removing these screws because you wanted to take the trimble unit out of the car? From what I understand, you only need to unscrew the gps wire from the trimble unit and screw this into the MK4 player. Is this unreachable with the CD player, radio module and the DSP unit in the car?

Re: 2000 M5 MKII to MKIV Upgrade

That is correct. It is plug and play in the sense of electrical connections. Not in the sense of not having to do some typical car audio installation type work.

Re: 2000 M5 MKII to MKIV Upgrade

No need for a special tool. Just use 2 fingers on either side to push in the retension tabs and push/pull the unit out.

good job...I'm sure those pics will make it easy for people down the road.

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.
