Hi,
I've recently re-joined the club and I'm looking to upgrade the head unit in my E39 - double din, integrated satnav. DAB, reversing camera, phone, etc.

I'm sure this has been answered before but I'd appreciate any advice on best brands to look at and recommended installers, ideally anywhere between Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff.

Many thanks
Rob

I read so much negative comment on the Chinese units that, despite their OEM look, I bought a modern alternative, a Sony XAV-5550. The fascia around it (supplied by Western Car Radio in Bristol) looked pretty naff so I then bought a surround (Innovadrive NXG-39from one of the guys on the BMW 5 series forum (Forums - BMW 5 Series Owners Board), Dennis Cooper. It was very expensive (over £200) and, although it is purely aesthetic rather than functional, it has a great OEM look.
