Re: Installing after market backup camera

Hi, Did you copy the pin orientation or modified it some other way? I copied the pin orientation but had to buy another cable with an angled connector. Could you provide a picture of the pin/wires?

The existing long LVDS cable is supposed to connect the Head Unit to the Video Interface and the supplied new LVDS cable would go from the Interface to the Screen.

Re: AC Condenser Damage - 2015 BMW i3 REX

I removed the bottom "lip" first. After that it was easy to remove the grill. About an hour for the whole job.
Not bad - but MKH´s method sounds still way easier :roll:

I used painted aluminum screen mesh.

Re: Installing after market backup camera

This is the one I ordered: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Car-Media-Solution-Reverse-Camera-Trajectory-Video-Interface-IPAS-Box-For-BMW-NBT-System-OEM-Monitor/32805330200.html I had to modify the LVDS cables and I wasn't able to make the unit work with a front camera. The rear view camera works well.

Re: heavy fan noise while charging

Me too. The leaking condenser was diagnosed last summer. My car only had 14.334 km at the time but it was out of warranty (late 2014 model). There was no indication of any external damage (stone chip etc.) on the condenser but BMW AG in München did not accept my goodwill request. I exchanged quite a...

Installation of an auxiliary heater to improve electric range

We've had a fairly cold winter this year in Finland. Even in the southern part of our country the temperature has occasionally been -25 deg Celsius.
