Actually, I was familiar with HIS particular car as we discussed an audio install for it. He DOES have the integrated climate control

Guys,

There is some confusion here. We include that part with the purchase, we offer it for $65 on our site if you wish to purchase it separately or additionally. However, if you purchase the main unit, you do not need to add on the additional $65 option as it is included as part of the price.

I doubt it, that seems like a ton of work. My seller told me the one mold cost over $10,000. So to make it in 7 different finishes would be a pretty penny. To me the black looks fine with the wood, everything else is black around it really.

Unfortunately i haven't discovered any setting regarding the PDC sound.
It does change for sure considering the OEM sound of PDC to a more higher tone.

I have seen that the unit has iPod integration. I already have it in my glove box. Will my existing iPod integration stay the same?

Not to worry though,ipod works well on these units,touchscreen heaven.

+1 for sure about the location, they need to be flipped, it's too low.

Just saw on another forum that the site i got mine from is offering a "Pre-Order Special", sounds like a GB special minus the formal saying it.

Coupon code for $40 off price: "DYNAVIN"

As for the assist, it is a yellow "error" so it just shows up when you start the car and goes away. My vehicle is actually at the dealership right now getting some warranty work done, so i will report if my SA says anything about it or not.

Other than that its been working like a charm and i am loving it!
I'm a noob when it comes to BMW's. I just bought my wife a 2007 328i for her birthday/anniversary present (big upgrade from a Civic). I've been researching up and down the forums for an aftermarket nav solution and came across this thread. I'll be deciding whether to go with this, an AVIC Z120BT, or move her old AVIC F900BT from her Civic within the next two weeks. I think the install is similar enough. The car has bluetooth, BMW assist, no Logic7 (as least there is no center speaker).

Anyway. I believe to make the assist error go away we just run throw the oem radio in the trunk and run some wires and optical cables out there according to this thread.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...3&postcount=29

What is unclear to me is this. I believe the TCU in the trunk encompasses the bluetooth and BMW assist feature. Am I correct in that the TCU is connected to, and also controls the OEM amp when an Assist event happens (like BMW calling you when a crash happens); it bypasses the radio and the audio is routed directly through the amp?

If these assumptions are correct, then technically, I would not lose BMW assist then and make the SOS error go away if we throw the OEM radio in the back, right?
