For all you guys holding back due to maybe a not so good experience from the Avant 2 or 3, it seems they have got it right this time, a great head unit, and at half the price of previous units.

I have been testing the units for the past few weeks and they have been very responsive and a pleasure to use as well as looking good, the only thing that concerns me a little is the temperature on the rear heat sink, It might be a good idea to have an add-on heat sink, it would probably add a longer life to the product. I have only had access to the PX6 unit.

So go ahead and dump the 2/3 the 4 is way way better.

I totally agree with skylink. I have had mine for nearly 6 months now and am very happy with my Avant-4. Lots of features that our dated BMW's never came with.

Anyone want to install mine for me in Maryland?

The last owner put in an Eonon GM5150 in a nav equiped 03 convertible, also a 5 channel amp running all the speakers and a sub.

I feel it may be beyond my capabilities to figure it all out.

I'm in Arlington, VA; although I don't have much time to do an install, I can help with your technical questions on what needs to be plugged in, etc.

Agreed, my initial post #244 was similar to yours; however, everyone on this thread have been extremely responsive and helpful
