Valentine 1 Hardwired, good to go

**i took it to this place in the southbay called socal audio, Clay installed it for $20 bucks and did it in like 10 minutes. Doesn't get better then that.

**I love how concealled it is, and how its very hard to notice it from the outside of the car, especially since i have a small strip of tint going across the top of my windshield.

**clay installed it exactly as this guy posted, http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...lentine&page=4 and it works for E92's as well (in case you were skeptical)

**enjoy the pics. i know you love this high quality camera:

**yes thats a GTR mirror, forgive me.

Nice! I put mine in the same spot. Very pleased with it. I know you'll like having it set up that way.

dont you miss the auto-dimmed features on the mirror?

I have been driving with a big mirror like that all my life, but I am forcing myself to get use to the regular size mirror just because of the auto-dimmed features and the compass. and I am used to it now after a week of getting my bimmer.

There is where I put my V1 as well, and finally found a nice spot under the steering wheel to put my conceal display.

oh yea, i dont have the auto dim feature, but its fine cause i have tinted rear windows. and i dont really use the compass that much, even though it looks coo. i was thinin of gettin that concealled display too, maybe later.

Adjust your side mirrors properly and you shouldn't need that big mirror. I do wish our cars came with the euro side mirrors though, it would make blind spots non existent.
