Called BimmerTech and told him to get me his OEM-grade rear camera kit for my E92 M3. The major difference between BimmerTech camera kit and the Chinese cam modules is that the actual camera display in the iDrive screen uses the OEM interface.
So if the idea is to have the look of OEM =and with the PDC- then there is nothing else out there. That's what I was looking for...
Camera -in OEM-like trunk release mount- installed:
CIC removed; the camera video (yellow RCA) and camera power jack exposed:
Custom harness with premade connections amd camera emulator ready to go in:
Harness plugged in, iDrive coded for rear camera, OEM screen enabled:
- Hardware is PnP; coding required for the OEM camera screen.
- PDC integrated with OEM camera screen
- No other modifications/hardware required. Kit includes camera, harness and coding.
