This is awesome! I have a 07 E64 as well. I do not have a USB port anywhere I can find, just AUX in. I would love to add a backup camera to the car and setup the ability to display my Android phone's txt or email on the screen etc, basically get the video input working.
How did you pull these off and whats the best way to add the USB/camera?
I'd be happy to share but it's a lot of detail.
I see you're close by me. I'm on the BimmerForums 6series board also and I've started a discussion about a local get together in March one weekend to compare notes, mods etc.
Once I have a plan. I'll post it here too and hopefullty well get some more locals from the M side of the house. Who knows we might even get some local power users join us for the event.
I Love LA. It lets me ride in the winter with the top down.
