You guys have lots of guts. Hope the glory went with all the hard work.
lol, yep infact we found the missing part (down behind the seat back), and just have to reconnect it to the bottom of the seat, will do that next time, as it was getting way to late.rogbacon said:It was interesting to note that Whizzkid's passenger seat belt pre-tensioner cable was detached - either he's dislodged it via some very mad driving, or he's had the seat out before! I reckon it's the former.........:biggrin:
Would like to see the finished product. Any pictures?Whizzkid11 said:Well... I am just coming to terms with what the beast had to endure... but luckily it was in the hands of some of the most enthusiastic individuals in the BMW modding world.
I wish to openly extend a very BIG Thank YOU to Tin, Andy (D4BMW) and Roger (rogbacon).
Just to highlight what was involved, I purchased the basic components initially, the Widescreen, the DVD NAV Unit, Euro Pro Radio module and the TV Unit.
This was followed up myself, Tin and Andy, having a few con-calls, emails etc researching and drawing up a list of what was required additional to the many versions floating on the net. Once all identified, components were ordered in...
Saturday morning, Tin arrived at 8am, Andy came from north of Loughboro for 9am and Rog came a bit later. All three of them performed the install and overcame a few unexpected obstacles... working through the day and finishing at abt 9pm, over 12hrs later!!
Tin returned the following morning for a further few hours of modding...
This is what is called enthusiasm, the temperature was low, but luckily enough dry. However with the adrenalin that was flowing, the rain would not have stopped them.
Once again, Many Thanks to Tin, Andy, Roger and this forum - because it was in May 2004 on a very rainy day at a board meet, that I met all three of these guys as well as foxyboym5 for the first time - and it was then we spoke about Sat Nav retrofitting - and now they were there in my car, in my garage, in my house -while I was away..... thank God I don't have a wife!!!
Will try and take some tomorrow... maybe a couple of days..hudson said:Would like to see the finished product. Any pictures?
