Have you got a picture of all the leads etc you have to mirror the phone on the MMI? I'm judt wondering where you hide all the leads etc

Ta :)
I just keep everything in the cubby under the arm rest. Where the AMI lead is plugged in! I'm using a spare mobile so I don't need to see or unplug all the time..

Brakes fitted.

I also bought a set of new pedal covers. They are just sleeves! So just remove old rubber covers.. And replace! Accelerator didn't have a cover so this just slipped on. I put the new covers in hot tap water for a few minutes to help manipulate the rubber and make them slip on easier... Just need to buy a RHD foot now

Small update as I'm unsure if I'm going down the honeycomb grill route... I wrapped my number plate plinth in some carbon wrap I had lying about. Only done it as it cover the drilled holes from the previous plates!

Easy enough... Just got to remove the trim to the right where the cubby hole is! It's located behind that... Took around 10 mins to fit!

I guess some would call it sacrilege, but I do think it sounds great and the BiTDI is a beast!

I've ordered some of those carbon mirror covers from HK too after seeing yours :)

Got the SoundBooster on my Bitdi also. i have left it on aetting #4, which i think is the best day to day sound. I think its a great bit of kit, and really simple install.

Dont know how you can live with that start up "roar" though... It makes me cringe!! :)

I've kept it on num 3, selected sound was for the purpose of the video after a few P/M's requesting this!

Try explaining speakers in your exhaust to a wee old lady in her 70's!!

Fitted a rear view DVR yesterday... And managed to wire it to the AMI port... Clear picture and camera is very discreet.

Yes certainly...
It's just a cheap eBay one! Only got it because it was so small and discreet...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222201718311

I also had to buy these as I never hard wired it...
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/112198862733

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221785547151

These allow me to plug it into a usb charger socket in the 12v plug under my arm rest..

I then purchased an AMI rca phono cable.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121970082752

Plugs straight into AMI port. Using the yellow ones for video in for the picture on the MMI screen.

Obviously you'd need VMI for it to work whilst driving...

Hi Scott, sorry it should be VIM (Video In Motion) No car has it as standard... But can be done via vcds if you can play DVD'S etc from your MMI

Ali, if you don't mind me saying, for the pinstripe, if it were me I would look for a much thinner one to put on, although it could just be due to the attached pics that I think its a bit overpowering, might look fine in the flesh, also have you thought about doing the rear diffuser in black?
Would also love a link to your front splitter! lol

Criticism is great as long as it's constructive... Yeah the pin stripe does look more obvious in the pics I do admit! But I quite like it... Ties in well with the red calipers etc.
Funny you mentioned the rear diffuser as last Sunday I was at the 'Tartan Tarmac' breakfast meet and someone asked me what's next and I said the very thing you suggested!
Definitely going gloss black soon... Might just buy a 2nd hand one and spray it myself! Failing that I'll get my mate to do it for me...

Not so much criticism, more an observation! Lol For the rear diffuser, had to ask as I have am going to get mine done, my car is red but have blacked the chrome out and put a black rs grille on it so I need to get the diffuser done too.

Love the German badge on the grille.

We have had our mirrors, front splitter, boot spoiler and rear diffuser painted gloss black.
