It doesn't have any problems that can't be fixed, and since they're all well known most can be prevented for even less money. With a little effort (and a lot less money than a new BMW) an e46 M3...

I really wanted to like the Eonon D5150, but after a year of use I've decided that it's just not for me.

As you can see above as far as the company goes, they are quick to respond to issues and...

Everything unfortunately.

Audio component quality is terrible. Probably better than stock, but I had a JVC aftermarket unit beforehand and this was definitely a downgrade. Radio reception is...

What he said...

It is very likely that the decal will be destroyed when disassembling the shift knob. You might be able to be really careful and save it, but I wouldn't count on it.

I would first verify that your mic works with something else, and make sure your mic doesn't require power. Then check your solder connections.
