Re: E46 PDC Retrofit

Hmm. It seems my last reply didn't stick.

Anyway, from what I've read online, the thickness of the paint can affect the sensor readings. My understanding is that it's best not to repaint them. I...

Re: E46 PDC Retrofit

Looks like the end of your message was cut off. What color is your car? I have some extra white sensors I have no use for.

Re: WTB: 1 or 2 rods worth of WPC rod bearings

Your best bet may be to jump back on the group buy but just order a partial set.

Take a look at the bottom of the right side. It lets you choose the volume.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190203/13ecaf20ee3c0d315bed694bc3aa7585.jpg

I believe PA Soft / BMW scanner has a PDC volume setting. I'll double check quickly and post a follow-up.

You can always disable it or turn the volume down so the beeping isn't so loud. Also you can choose between the gong and cluster's piezo. If you want to get really fancy you could try using the front...

Re: E46 PDC Retrofit

Yes, you can definitely spend $400 on the kit or you can spend about $150 sourcing the parts separately. Either way you still need to buy the bumper pieces separately.

Brown wires are all ground, so you can tap into that just about anywhere. There is actually a ground block next to the steering wheel where the brown/black wire plugs in (X10012). You could...

Re: Interest in a fully integrated A2DP Bluetooth solution?

The wires are there for the mic, but you still have to buy the mic (part number 84318380338) and hook it up. They usually run about $20 on eBay.

P.S. green board in the back simulates a cluster you say? Tell us more about this magical device :-)
