Hahaa! I was wondering when this would get you!You need the relay to switch the power so at Â£3.49 or Â£5 at best do it. Be sure...And that camera seems a little deep in the back where it would recess into the light holder - check that first, sorry I can't remember.Does say 3 or 5 series so not specific to an X5 install - mine works with the instructions I posted...If you can source the same or similar camera I would go with that. Good luck and keep me posted, will help where I can.
Where is the damn TV box?thanks.
I drilled the bmw badge and fitted a barrel camera, don't look too bad , as has been seen at the Bristol meets.No photos,can't do them.Lez
Hi, I bought an approved used X5 4.8 iS and it has a reversing camera.However....................ive had an issue with the radio, where some of the stations dont play and the station name is pixelated .Car went in on friday , to have a routine service and have the radio issue attended to.The dealer has returned the car with the remarks that ............" the reversing camera has corrupted the nav unit " and because the camera is not a BMW camera, they are refusing to touch it. Thats left me with a massive problem. I have a broken nav/radio unit, car is not repaireable under warranty even though I was sold it by a BMW main dealer with a BMW AUC with the camera fitted at the time of sale.Basically if you have a BMW warranty or perhaps any aftermarket warranty and your nav/radio unit fails, they may well use the fact that you have a non BMW part fitted as an excuse not to pay for repair.That said, i like the reversing camera and its a very useful adddition.RegardsNat.
