BTW saw your posts on the Dynavin forums before..actually told a coworker today about the N64 install you did with the Dynavin
I wish I could say that it "fit" but, sadly, it required a good bit of modification to get it to slide into the spot where the license plate bulb/housing goes. The camera is a bit to thick to fit in the housing so, in order to get it in there, we had to modify it a little. The modifications included shaving down the backing of the housing and then shaving down the "clips" that hold it in place. That said, after the modifciations, it sits in there perfectly and even includes an LED light to illuminate the plate. It also looks practically invisibile back there.

And I filmed this for you to demonstrate the picture which is actually really stellar. Keep in mind this is in a dimly lit parking garage. The lines represent one foot intervals which is actually far more accurate than I would have guessed.



As for where I got it, it was off ebay. Just look for bmw e46 back up camera like this : http://cgi.ebay.com/Car-Rear-View-Re...#ht_5332wt_913
