Reverse and Front camera install

Hi everyone. This is a very handy add on to the M3, if you've had cameras it's hard to do without them, especially the front one with a lowered car.
The main module is a video source module available on line from a couple of performance shops in USA, the add on auto switcher and timing is one of mine and is a small microcontroller now in production. I installed this setup in March and it's been great

Mate, you're a genius. Every single time I drive my car into a parking spot I have to get out at least once to physically check the location of the kerb and other random objects. This is a great way to save time and effort.

Please let us know when your microcontroller is ready for the market. Oh and if you can also let us know where you purchased the other parts from I'd appreciate it.

*fingers crossed it works on a 135i with iDrive*

Thanks for the kind comment :-) Its been a work in progress for a while now and I didn't want to put it out until tested. The video module "VSM module" is available from Alekshop and EAS. I bought mine from Alekshop which included the front and rear cameras, but I had a custom bracket for the camera to get the right viewing angle. My module is a full production module now, I have one or two but to make it economical I'd have to do a small run. Andrew at Southern BM has one of my modules for testing. It's fully programmable with one external button to program forward and reverse times, and the button also works as a one shot timer for drive in parking

Here is a pic of mine:

Good news is that it looks like yours is covered in the Video source modules.

Feel free to PM if you need more info.

Hah I was thinking it might've been off Alekshop. I always run into his posts and sig on here but never really bothered to check it out. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Still waiting for the right 135i to pop up so will PM when the time comes.

In the meantime good luck with the rest of the project/venture!
