Hmmm...I'm in Dallas and in the same boat. Well, car.

I guess there are two ways to fit a double-DIN in these cars: move the climate controls down, thus creating the double-DIN space above it; or changing the dash top as in the link.

The first method seems to work well and has been done a lot. I was about to go that way (until I found this thread), my only concern being whether the BMW's electronics would be compatible with aftermarket head units (satellite, Bluetooth, Nav, etc.).

I'll now investigate the up-top method shown in the link and decide which way to go. Sounds like Patryk (?) would know about the electronic compatibility issue.

Stay tuned.
