    double din

    hi all
    I'm considering putting a double din in my e46
    am I right in thinking I can move the heating controls down to the sunglasses place? and do I need any special extention bits to move it or will they go?
    thanks.

    Yeah theres an air con relocation available from the dealers.
    Iirc there's 2 types, 1 has a a full strip cutout for your various buttons, the other has individual button cutouts in it.
    The one below is part no. 51167001410 & is the full strip button cut-out.

    thanks.
    sorry I missed this question in my previous post no special tools as philips screwdriver and i think standard torx bits to attack the fixings.

    seems the conversion can be done without buying the , quite expensive , air con relocation kit see Blog - BMW e46 Air conditioning panel modification steps

    You can probably get arrested in some states for doing that !!!

    fantastic guys
    thank you
    all I need to know now is this. .

    there seems to be millions of double din units out there, I want one that's touch screen with Bluetooth that's going to be compatible with my stalk controls

    I understand that I can purchase a stalk loom adaptor, but I seem to find it hard to find out if these units will work with it

    I've been led to believe that the android units are nice, but will they work with the stalk?

    bloody mine field it is! lol

    I feel confident enough now to say thank you in advance guys

    With the correct lead I think the Parrot Asteroid Smart can be controlled by MFSW , but Dynamic Sounds should be able to answer that Q for you
