Did you pay for fitting or self fit? My E70 2008 model will be delivered later this week and I’m going to move the dension kit across from my old E70 - can’t find any details on how to get the cd changer out yet though.

I paid for fitting.
The cd changer needs the surround popped off first. Trim tool around side should pop off the clips 4 I think.
Then you see the hex screws holding in place. Needs a firm yank to get it out.

I took the plunge and got it fitted.
Works pretty much as I hoped.
The DAB isn't as feature rich as the factory fitted. But works very well none the less.
The Bluetooth streaming works well on my Galaxy S8+, as luck would have it a recent update to my phone meant my factory Bluetooth telephony now works with contacts! :)

General X5 Forum (E70) / Boot open button (Non-powered tail lift)
« on: December 08, 2017, 06:46:26 AM »
Hi all,

What are the boot open buttons meant to do on the non powered version?
It just seems to open the boot a fraction, I then have to pull it up by hand. That how it is meant to work?

The gas struts seem a little tired on mine..

thanks

Thanks Weaselchops :)

Easy to fit?

Yeah fairly. Plenty of how to remove things on YouTube.
The CCC unit is probably the most fiddly bit to remove. But again not that hard.

Can anyone confirm if i need to get DAB and TV extras or will they pass through? I have both on my SD so would be good to not have to rebuy them :)
The screen works as a pass through, you press and hold menu on the idrive to toggle between your original system and android of the new screen.

Hi Guys I I'm just waiting on the last few pieces of kit for nbt retrofit, part of the kit I was sent was screen from f30 from what I can tell, just wanted to find out what's involved in making it fit in old ccc screen casing

Did you get anywhere with this?
I have even seen some NBT EVVO retrofits in the E70...want! :)

I’ve installed a gateway 500 in three different BMW’s now - the latest being my e70, which had the factory iPod interface, but I swapped it out for the dension because the OEM interface is a bit frustrating in how it handles ‘shuffle’ mode.

What do you want to know? I’ve never used the dab unit.

Has yours got bluetooth? If so does it take over from the built in hands free system?

General X5 Forum (E70) / Dension Gateway 500, any experiance?
« on: November 01, 2017, 02:57:10 PM »
Hi,

I am thinking of getting the Dension 500 gateway along with the DAB+G adaptor. As my X5 has not got native USB or Bluetooth streaming and deffo no DAB :)
Has anybody got any experience of these?

Cheers
