I believe so. looks like the same kit as yours. I dont like the rear spoiler, might change that one day.

On the bmw computer/invoice when I get it serviced it comes up as a 2000 E46 330i M Sport.

I have an E46 coupe built 12/2002. It has TV but not NAV. How are you going to plug your XBox in? Have you made video imputs through the TV A/V channel?

Also, how much did it cost for "mk4 dvd navigation retrofit with v26 birdseye view toggle 3d software" and who did it, you or dealer?

yeah man.. mine had HK, tv and no nav too. basically i bought a mk4 dvd drive off ebay (new) for $750 euro, a 16:9 screens (CD), a new BM53/54 radio module from BMW to replace my BM24, the adaptor harnesses for the radio to go from flat pin to round pin and an adaptor harness for an e38 which i spliced the power and ibus into, a gps sender etc. all up i think it cost $3000 as i already had a video module that was in widescreen.

it was pretty straightforward once i had all the information. if your wanting to do it I can give you all the part numbers I used (slightly different to the ones in the nav retrofit guide) because the US guys mostly do a business radio retrofit.

av input connections plug into the white connector on the tv module.

the v26 software is from x5world. im running v27 now also from x5world.

CortinaD, Thanks. I am interested in the A/V connections. Where is the TV module, in the boot near the CD stacker? And what is the white connector you mentioned? Is it a BMW connector? What do I need to plug into it? I would like to end up with a yellow, red and white RCA style socket like you see on the back of VCRs like this one. I am assuming that you then switch the TV to the AV channel to see and hear stuff.
Thanks

you got it in one dude!

underneath the CD staker is the radio and video module (i removed my stacker and put the iPod in there)...the video module is the first one. see the pic (its my boot from when I installed the TvOnNav, the video module is the first silver box you see) on the right hand side you see the blue and white connectors. The blue connector is the one from the monitor, the white one goes to my nav computer. i bought some pins from Audi (they are cheaper there, although i also bought some from bmw) Audi part no A000979010, WIRE REPLACEMENT VA. The white connector was from the Nav retrofit (I believe it was 61 12 8 377 436 looking at my notes but cant find the receipt). that plugs in and i attached the following

In order to enable video and audio inputs to the Video Module, connect two RCA cables or RCA sockets as follows to the Video Module Harness white connector:

Pin #4 composite video in signal
Pin #5 composite video in ground
Pin #6 audio in signal
Pin #15 audio in ground

as per http://www.openbmw.org/nav/sys/
