General X5 Forum (F15) / Retrofitting Surround View?
« on: May 14, 2018, 03:18:58 PM »
Following on from another thread that went slightly off topic (my fault), I thought it best to create a new thread.

So, I'm looking into the possibility of fitting Surround View to a F15 M50d. I've researched across the interwebs and the nearest hit is fitting an Alpine system to an E70. Doesn't look like they make one for the F15, yet.

Now, I've found two sellers on eBay shifting all the necessary hardware and both reckon it can all be retrofitted, just need a specialist garage to do it all.

Has anyone done this before or even considered it?
I have no problem with most of the hardware stuff, would just need some help with the electrical and coding.
If there's anyone else keen to do this, we could tackle this together as nice little project  ;)

Well done and Congrats on the sale.

Was it via the forum or did you use the likes of Autotrader/EBay?

eBay.

Nice one.
It looks like I'm going the same route as you, Sterling Grey E53 to a F15.

Nice, which F15 you going with? I’ve got a M50d on order as you’ve no doubt seen on the other thread.

It’s being fitted tomorrow. It works out around £400 for fitting . Cotswold Bmw also do it all in for about £3000 if your a member of m3cutters forum .

I was thinking of ordering off eBay and fitting them myself, can’t be that hard really?

Anyone fitted these bits themselves?

Found this genuine OEM kit on eBay, sounds right at £2,483?

Update: deal done, F15 M50d on order arriving in June.
Got 90% of the spec I wanted with very limited stock remaining, happy with what I got, just can’t sleep at night waiting for it to arrive.

Thank you.
I’ve already got BimmerCode used on my i3 so will give these a go when my F15 arrives next month.

Anyone know if it's possible to retrofit ACC and Surround View?
both seem like a lot of hardware with Radar Detectors and a number of cameras but would be great if it's possible.

Technically probably possible, but it wouldn't be cheap or easy I don't think.

Yeah, I’ve found you can buy all the necessary components for ACC and Surround View off eBay (not kits but used components). Will cost a few £££ and some decent effort but possible I guess. Was hoping to find someone who’s either already done it or keen to give it a go, before I tackle it on my own.

Lol you need to code that, which I've done. It's a bit more torque I want in 1st and 2nd.

May I ask how you coded the more beefy sound? Assuming it's internal speaker acoustics???

Hi Lee,

I know you mentioned you didn't want a 2006 but I have a really clean and very well spec'd 2006 for sale: http://xdrivers.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,17057.0.html

Road tax is £540 vs £315 which isn't a great deal of difference in the grand scheme of things if you get a good purchase price  ;)

Take a look and get in touch if you'd like to discuss....

Regards
Ryan
