Yes, I looked at that unit also before the MGR became available.

First off, the E46 headunit alone is $699 dollars AFAIK. Obviously Mirrorlink is a big advantage on the MGR.

The seller is doing an MGR kit with DVR, DVB-T receiver and wireless rear camera for 499 sterling, thats about $800. I don't know how much a similar BMW kit is but I think its about 100 dearer due to the canbus adapter.

The Avin unit looks to have a poorer spec than the MGR i.e 800Mhz, no mention of dual core.

Maybe any of you E46 guys who are interested could go to the MG Rover Club site and ask him questions? Or I could PM him your queries over there if you wish?
