Also is the attiny2313a-su programmable on the board as is?
What do you propose it do without xbmc and sd/video/mp3 storage? It'll be a pretty dumb unit. Yes it's programmable, there's a header on the board.

mine stays if you switch it to radio / tape / etc.

Not a big deal but if it is supposed to come back out of the pi's video when you change from the CD input, then mine's misfiring somewhere.
You mean you can't see your normal BMW menu any more? It's not right.

It switches back if you press e.g. MENU, FM, MODE and some other keys. Check your Pin17 isn't shorted to ground and that Q4 is soldered on correctly.
