When you receive it, would you please share some details on how it is installed? Afterwards, I may be interested in the group buy.
I have a diy in the CarPlay thread Kzang. In there I discuss where I put the unit. There all around the same size give or take. My 2014 had enough space that I was able to place the unit flat down in the back in the bottom of the space. Then the cabling just plugs in line to the oem harness with the only switching needed is the MOST connected being moved from the oem harness to the new CarPlay harness as that's what now plugs into the back of the Head unit. It's an easy install man. If it doesn't fit glad then you can tilt it at an angle. There is a ton of space to the right and left of the open for the cables and such. I don't think enough to actually fit the box to the left or right though. Although I didn't really try to do that as I had enough room just to put it flat along the bottom. I have heard of those in the F80 side putting these things under the glove box's but idk how much room we have there.

If you're really worried I recommend just taking 30 min or so and open up your dash yourself and take a look and you'll see there's quite a bit of room there.

Wireless or wired option
- this is the same unit on the other thread right?
No auto 360 camera, no steering wheel control, separate mic (won't use mic already in the car) and backup camera may not work 100%...

I'm interested in the wireless option. I just want to make sure it's the same unit or does this unit solved all above issues.
Bimmer retrofit said steering wheel controls work.
Joyauto and unichip said lots of things too. Doesn't mean it's true.
Ok the guy just posted that his steering wheels controls work with this unit. They didn't at first because of bad installation. You don't need to be a turd in the punch bowl man.

I'm not an idiot and realize that. I've spent thousands with bimmer retrofit in the past and they have always been truthful with me. And helped me through issues with their product when something came up. So I'll take their word for it. If it doesn't work to plan I will return it.

Also some units can look the same with different software so sometimes their systems can work better than others due to one companies programming over another. Not saying that's the case here but I've have units that are of same design but are running different code and things just plain work better.

Don't understand why people always have to be a dark cloud sometimes.
Aww it's ok. If you can't appreciate someone's actual experience with these types of products who literally just ran a GB on similar product 2 months ago, ok. It's not a dark cloud. It's simply a fact. These companies promise a lot and don't always deliver.

But hey if you prefer responses that only make you happy and feel good about life then I hear Subaru forums are great for that. Full of people really in touch with their emotions and what not.

Hey everything is in the delivery!

Trust me I've had my fair share of crap from China, I have to work with them in my line of work. But as you know things change on a daily basis with technology growing at a breakneck pace. It's not perfect and their new to market. Give it time and it will improve. If you don't do your part and buy these when they come out theirs no incentive to keep investing in it. They will get better with time. And I don't expect perfection the first time around. But as they keep improving I'll keep buying.



Also mind you I'm a bit sensitive today as the dealer called and told me my X5 needs a new engine no fault of my own. So don't take what I said to much to heart as I was more or less generalizing.

Will do, mine is almost here.. I think 10 pieces is a good number to start negotiating and squeeze extra discount for all the members!

Regarding other brands, if its the same unit.. why not. I see other companies on AliExpress putting their logo and starting at a little lower price.

Good News! so, I started talking to the supplier today, and we got it down to $273 with DHL Shipping Included.

Regarding payments, how do usually arrange payments for a group buy? This is my first time!

That's a great price. More details please. As far as payment's concerned, you can either:

1) Collect all funds through PayPal, Venmo etc., then send the GB payment at once. Or
2) Give supplier the list of names, email addresses of GB members & when to expect payment.

TIP: Set a strict payment deadline! Without fail, you're always gonna have stragglers who will delay this for whatever reason.
