Single or double din?

Double means the HVAC tube is in the way behind and you will need to work around that. Single should be a little easier - you just need a bezel kit and to be able to live with a big black chunk on the dash.

Please dont do it. It looks disgusting with all bezzel plastic. Just kills the center console.
Have it mounted in the glove compartment or just get a in dash cd (OEM business class) and get an ipod connection in the trunk aaand you are set!

I installed this in my e39 on the weekend picked it from Euro style (great guy to deal with) It was just plug and play you need to buy the e39 trim piece. Also it was from an
e38, now I am looking for an mk11 gps/dvd player for the trunk, Keep the stock look.

that is obviously OEM right? Does the dash have an indash CD player?

Also, I have been looking to do the same thing. I definitely want to put a double din headunit in with Bluetooth, Nav, DVD, ipod aux, etc. I've been looking at the JVC KWNT1. It is a gorgeous double din deck that cost around $1000. According to some research I did its a pain in the ass to install any aftermarket double din in the e39's. They have to do a lot of fabricating in making a kit for it. I got quoted $250 just on labour to install that plus with the aftermarket deck I won't be able to use my steering wheel controls unless I buy a module which is close to another $200.

When all is said and done I'm looking at over $1500. That is just too rich for my blood.

The screen can play DVD's It's just a matter of tapping in to the imputs .

One of the things you will need to consider before even thinking about how to install a car DVD player is what tools you will need for the job. While each car and each car DVD system is different there are still some basic items you will probably need to complete the installation process.

I Had This Same Problem Until I Met The Owner Of "www.number1sound.com" At Bimmer Cruise In Brampton. He Broke Down Exactly What You Said And Brought Me To His 540, Where He Had The Steering Wheel Working, A Kenwood Deck With Touch Screen, Bluetooh And All, Also Handmade A Bezel It Looked Pretty Good. I Have The Factory In-Dash Cass Right Now, Do You Have The Same Or You Have A Factory Screen Which Does Not Require You To Change the Whole Harness Like I Would?
