Amazing job! I love the placement of the GPS in the fake intake. I guess it's waterproof. Only thing I would have done a little differently if possible would be to have the Passport display be etched in the rear view mirror and put the controls in the ashtray. Otherwise, everything looks perfect.

Nice. My display and controls are in the same place. I bought a spare plate, and it's sitting in my living room all cut up right now. I went with a red display to match the rest of the car though. There's also the issue of the power button, which is on the top of the control box, and needs to be relocated if you want to flush mount it.

BTW, this looks like a 2008 rather than a 2009 because of the DVD based nav and the old iDrive control knob. The 2009 has a HDD based nav and a different iDrive control knob.

Thanks for all the kind words. We have an M5 we just finished a couple things on that will be pictured shortly. Now on this perticular vehicle I need to figure out a way to add heated seats to the front of it. Any suggestions?????

Very nice.

What were the last 4 pics of?

Also, why not use the stock subs under the seats or one large sub behind the center arm rest?
