M3 MkIV Nav System Removal

All,

Looking to remove my Nav system and possible sell it afterwards. I'm still not sure how I feel about selling it, but I'm looking for some info.

I guess what I really need is to look at the DIYs and see what it takes for people to retrofit a Nav system, but I'm not sure of everything I would need to remove to make it an attractive package for sale.

Obviously screen/head unit, Nav DVD, and mounting brackets, but what else should I rip out?

Wiring harness and the nav unit from the trunk. Also, before you start this, I would suggest you look at the DIYs for your aftermarket Nav installs. It's not tooo hard but it requires cutting.

No cutting. Single DIN going in with OEM Euro centered carrier.

My biggest question is about the wiring harness. Can it be removed or is it part of the main harness?

If it was factory fitted nav the harness is not removable. And there is no wiring for a head unit up front.

I guess that lowers my marketability, eh?

Not really.

16:9 LCD ~300
MKIV DVD Nav drive ~250
BM53 ~200
16:9 TV Tuner ~100

Still a fair wedge. The retrofit cable is worth 80, the non-retrofit 70.

You will be able to sell the complete setup from anywhere from $400 - $1000 easily. The lower price reflects a recent sale from a very kind fanatic that was parting out their car. You could include the retrofit cable, but should leave that to the buyer. You also could bundle up the whole system; radio, dvd unit, monitor, amp, cd changer(if installed), bracket, and cover if you're going to remove it all and sell it as a complete package with the retrofit cable. You have plenty of options. Plenty of people would be interested, myself included in the system for the right price. I'm still on the fence about the Dynavin unit at the moment.

Good luck.

I removed My OEM nav/audio setup from my '02 330xi. The OEM harness is not removable; it ties into to many points in the cars systems, modules, computers, etc. As previously stated, a retrofit cable would be necessary. It is saleable, in its entirety or piece by piece.

I did replace it with a much better system IMO.
Head unit- Eclipse AVN6600, iPod, Sirius, DVD, PAC SWI-ECL2 adapter, Parrot BTE-6000 Bluetooh, Rear view camera

Amp- Hfonics-ZXi8006 5ch 110x4 +300

Front-Polk Mobile Monitor 6-3/4" components
CDT400 2 way xovers
Pyle 3-1/2" coax capped to midrange (these run the bluethooh for phone)

Rear- Polk Mobile Monitor 6-3/4" coax

Sub- Polk Momo 10" in custom box
