Bavsound - Dynavin - BMW E46 3 Series Installation - Part 1/2
Purchase the Dynavin Install Toolkit here:
Part 1/2: This video walks you through the entire process of installing a
Dynavin Head Unit / Navigation / Multimedia Device in your E46 3 Series BMW
('99-05). The process is fairly straightforward and should take even a
novice approximately an hour or two from start to finish!
Sorry we didn't film the relocation into the AC Controls slot. It's a
direct fit on other cars and almost a direct fit on E46, but if you want
it to be 100% factory you'll need a climate control trim piece available
from the dealer. In this install we did not use the factory piece and it
worked quit well. e46 is the only model that uses the OEM part and it's

Upgrading your prefacelift BMW E46 to have a DCT Steptronic Knob and DCT M shift pattern
EVERYONE! They sell the fake non-lit versions on eBay for around $60 now!
They also sell an aftermarket retrofit kit using a geniune bmw dct shifter
for around $399 and up on eBay. So please please stop asking me where to
get it!!! You can also call or visit your local BMW Dealership and order
it for $200!
Because my car is a 2001 E46, the original pattern of my steptronic M plate
was + above -. After the DCT shifter retrofit I decided to upgrade the
steptronic indicator plate and switch the purple/blue wires around under
the plate so the M upshift and downshift coincided with the pattern on the
DCT shifter and matched the actual shifting pattern of all BMW sports
steptronic cars from 2002 to present.
BMW e46 Trailing arm removal
BMW e46 Trailing arm removal:
Here is my first video showing how to remove the trailing arm on a BMW e46.
I had the wheelbearing replaced by a friend, but the protector (backing)
plate was damaged - the mounting holes for the parkbrake shoe got flattened
by the press. I tried to get the (very specific) recess into place again,
fitted everything and the brakeshoes came off during the test drive :argh:
I temporarily removed the shoes and continued testing.
I am now awaiting the new plate to arrive and in the mean time removed the
trailing arm for fitment.
The shop can replace the wheel bearing with a sliding hammer, which is
propably less work and there is no need for wheel alinment.
I prefer to have everything checked again.
