Can I move the ac/heater controls down to the "sunglasses" holder??

I'd like to put in the double din touchscreen nav head unit, but that means relocating the comfort controls...will they fit in that space if I remove the storage compartment?

by just relocating it. the ac unit fits just as close as oem. it moves a little a bit but nothing serious..I only mention it because you can save some $$$

You are wrong. Search for your next problem first. If you can't find anything, we'll be more than happy to help (and we still are even if you didn't search). Just do everyone a favor and search first. It's how ALL online forums work. Thanks.

They weren't kidding when they said driving BMW's turns people into A-holes...besides, if my asking a question that you've seen asked a hundred times get your panties twisted, you need to take a break from this forum and go out on a date...

There's a sticky at the top of the forum on how to search. If you had searched you would have found the answer to this very simple question without having to start a thread.

Call us a-holes, I don't care, but we get tired of seeing the same threads pop up over and over because people are too lazy to search for themselves.

So with that. Search.
