eBay double din nav/dvd units?

There's several on eBay for about 375us that ship from China and Hong Kong. I'm a little cautious on the quality. Anyone have experience with these units off eBay? Brand names are unheard of to me.

haven't heard many good things about the cheapies,

Avant Navi is supposed to be really good
https://avinusa.com/bmw-e46-avant2-f...on-system.html

the best "cheap option" imo is a little tablet on the mid air vents with Brodit-thingies it's perfect for me, not vibrating or anything and easy to install

Avin Avant 2 is currently the best of those aftermarket nav units and per the instructions no cutting of heater boxes is mentioned. Where are you getting your information? Double DIN trim piece is required, yes. But so what.

It's a tight fit but no cutting is required.

That's some sweet sh*t you're smoking for sure. Straight up chronic.

Those are the ones they designed to specifically fit our cars. I didn't realize you were one of those that dont know how to real work on their car but then again I don't blame you. It wasn't easy. It took many hours for me to do mine
