Backup Camera - INSTALLED

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I found an installer for backup camera at a place called AVSound Design in Sterling. Did a first rate job and I had both the back and front cam installed, pretty cool!
I'll post some pics if you like.

Sure thing bro, whenever it's good for you.
I ended up not installing the DVD player and didn't have them enable the rear cam while driving.

Here is the breakdown, I'll have to take some pictures over the weekend and post them but you can checkout the vids here from the seller. I have to admit I like it!

http://modmynav.com/gallery.html

Parts
1.Interface + back up camera kit for 2011 M3 is $495.00
2.Front camera : $159.99
3. Enable rear view while driving : $7.99
4. DVD player : $199.99
5. Video playback with audio through speakers : $7.99

Labor
Now I did not install the DVD player but I did buy it. I also didn't enable the option 3.
The shop that installed my parts is called AV Sound Design and they gentleman's name is Ken and they were great. It took a full day worth of work but I think it was worth it.
1. Front Camera install $350
2. Rear Camera install $500

Hope this helps. You are more than welcome to come see it.

If possible, i would like to see that in person too. I have the rear PDC so i probably wouldnt use the rear camera but i need the front cam not to scratch the bumper while parking. I hate the cement bars on the floor at the end of in parking spots which is to prevent you from driving into the wall. i wonder if the camera can see very close to the bottom lip that i can see that bar and not hit it.

Hey man - i went ot AV Sound Design today and spoke to Ken regarding the Backup Camera install - i'm getting a 335is next week (arrives in baltimore sunday night)

Anyway coming from a Lexus IS w Rev Camera so thinking about pulling the trigger on this - any feedback/issues since the install? Also Ken was quoting me $800 for just the rear camera install which i thought was a bit high - esp since you said he only charged you $500 for it.

Anyway - any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks
