Double din kit?!?!

I saw this and was shocked! It basically means you only need to cut out that right angle plastic piece, and the rest is bolt on.

http://cgi.ebay.de/_W0QQitemZ320199213657QQcmdZViewItem

Add the A/C relocation thingy and get the double-din face from mybimmer and it's pretty much set, right?

So who makes this besides this German Ebay company?

Sorry if this has been asked/posted before, I'm a bimmer noob!

From the research I have done you are about right. Thanks for the link to the german E-bay site. I just ordered the mounting bracket from them so we will see how things go. This will save a lot of fabrication time!

P.S. Welcome to the forums!

Yes, definitely let us know how it goes. And if you can, please find out who the manufacturer is. I'm hoping it's not just some guy in his basement. It would be preferable to have a non-ebay place to get it.

I just looked through his feedback. Looks like he has sold a ton of these kits and a lot of double din bezels. Excellent feedback on all of it.

That's definitely good to hear, but I'm still curious if he made them, or if there's a non-ebay company out there that makes them.

I think he makes them. If you look through his auctions and what he has already sold you will see he also sells raw bezels. If he was getting them from a company I doubt he would be selling raw units.

Good point with the raw units.

Well, at least he gets good feedback.

I've bought before from him and he is trusted. He was also selling a double din bezel like the one from mybimmer.net but you could order it in different stages i.e. without paint, rough shape, etc.. the earlier stage the cheaper.

It says the mounting is for max 7" nav screens I think...and the aftermarket screens I'm looking at are 7.5". Wondering if this mounting bracket would be applicable?
