Do I upgrade the head unit?

Post by Mitch » 08 Jun 2015, 17:31

Hi All,

Recently purchased an E91 2010.

Has the professional head unit and knackered element in rear screen.

I know I can probably repair the broken element in the screen if i wanted.

My question is should I upgrade the head unit to one of those Car Play units with a DAB aerial (comes with its own antenna)?

Would I loose any functionality of the car i.e reversing sensors of MFD?

Thanks for your answers in advance

I'm not 100% sure, but think you may be in for a heap of problems if you attempt to replace the screen beyond the actual screen part itself. If you have the skills, capability etc to effect a repair, I'd go for that option every time!

Whether the replacement would work would depend on the spec of the replacement vs the current........
