Guys whats the difference between the z1 and the N3 (besides the flip, etc etc) what makes the Z1 more expensive.

Is the N3's navi/dvd player good?

Im thinking of getting the N3 because i dont want to go through the hassle of install, buying the double din, etc etc...

appreciated!

biggest difference is that the Z1 has a 30 gb hard drive...

Z1 > all double dins IMO, you wont be disappointed...plus it looks way cleaner vs. flip out

the only additional parts I bought was Rich's www.mybimmer.net double din trim and the oem a/c unit trim

Bluecougar,
Did you end up using a can bus adapter to tap into the BMW speed sensor? IF you did not how accurate is your Navigation on the BMW. I am about to put one in my M3. Thanks for your help

Can bus adapter? No adapters necessary, the Z1 would connect directly to the speed sensor wire.

For teh N3, do you HAVE to be parked to view dvd's? (i was looking into the pioneer website and it said while parked, you can view dvd, etc etc)

go to dealer and get the pocket that m3 with nav have for your ac controlles if you dont have nav and you take the bottom pocket out to put ur ac controlls down there it is going to have some gaps.

this sunday is the 4th not the 14th so its extended till the 4th then.
The double-din bezel is extended till this sunday night. The carputer bezel is till the 14th. I think that's where you got the 14th from.
