So I just got a 2002 BMW 530 (e39) and I have a V1 on the way. And I am planning to bring it over to Eric from StealthOne as soon as the rd arrives to have an S1 installed.
I would like to hardwire the V1 at the same time. I was planning to go with this sort of stealth install (in the headliner by the lights/sunroof controls)...www.540i6.com/v1.html but I just realized that my car has a different access panel, it has controls for the garage door opener right in the middle of that panel, and a piece behind it.
So now my question is, do I go ahead with this install and try to get an OEM part for this panel without the garage door opener? I don't have a need for the garage door opener. But my other concern about this install is that there is some metal in the area, its not level, and the IR rain sensor is in front of it (for the windshield wipers).
Should I go for a rear center headrest install instead? Or do you have any better ideas?[/url]
