Aftermarket Head Unit?

Tue Feb 13, 2018 2:54 am

Having just completed a 48 hour i3 test drive, I found that I really enjoyed the experience and the car is a good fit for my daily commute.

However... I found the ICE to be pretty lacking. I use a Pioneer Android Auto head unit in my current car and I've really struggled with the BMW system - I think the navigation is vastly inferior, the controls unintuitive and I miss having the ability to play back my lossless audio and stream internet radio stations.

If I go ahead and purchase, how easy is it (or is it at all possible) to replace the head unit with an Android Auto head unit? I had a quick look at the ICE screen, but I can't even see anywhere that would be an obvious candidate to accommodate a double din head unit.

Has anybody here looked into this at all?

Like many other modern cars, i3 doesn't have a head unit.
