Not saying a carpc isnt cool and unique but if i had to do it all over id just buy the dynavin and hvac relocation and call it a day.

Good luck on it.

Thanks for that info - I didn't know of the existence of the dynavin, but according to the website the dynavin does look good as you say. I don't see any IBUS interfacing though, so I'm guessing there won't be steering wheel audio control/cd changer interface?

I'm doubting now whether to actually do the carputer. The e46 is aging a bit, and i'm wondering if it's really worth all the effort and investment. My primary interest actually laid in the IBUS interfacing, with the carputer just there to give purpose to the IBUS interface and make the whole system look OEM. But we'll see....
