2010 BMW 3 Series Dashboard Removal for Apple Carplay

With this particular vehicle the customer decided he wanted to upgrade the original stereo system, however he didn’t want it fitted in the standard place and wanted to be a little unique.  We removed the dashboard from the car and installed the dashboard that you find in a BMW that has the factory iDrive system.  Once this was in the vehicle, we then customised the central housing that would normally hold the original BMW screen to hold an Alpine iLX-700 double DIN 7″ touchscreen unit that utilises the Apple Car Play system giving the driver touch control over Radio, Navigation, Phone Calls, iPod Music and several other music Apps.

Where the original stereo would fit in the iDrive dashboard we custom built a housing so the driver could slot in his iPhone rather than having it float around in the glovebox.

A rare treat to experience excellent customer service, real expert and knowledgeable advice, enthusiasm and on-going support. Nothing is too much trouble for Paul and the team at Source Sounds. I wouldn’t even consider going anywhere else!

Just wanted to say a massive thankyou to you guys at Source, especially Chris and Paul who over the past few weeks have impressed me no end. I went to them with a typically sub-standard BMW sound system, not really knowing how it should be improved and had a really friendly informal chat with Chris about the best route to take. What has impressed me most is that never at any point are the people here pushy – they really listen to your requirements and budget and make honest suggestions and give a number of options. Chris and Paul both spoke in some detail about what the issues were and how the problems could be addressed and I felt I was in safe, honest hands throughout the upgrade process. A whole new set of 3 way speaker set up and a new amp later the car sounds crystal clear like never before. Not wanting to change the head unit, the guys had solutions as to how to keep the car looking as factory as possible, and even asked me back in so they could check how the system has bedded in. Old components are carefully removed, allowing you to have them replaced should the car ever be sold. Their installation couldn’t be faulted and their customer service is genuinely excellent – polite, highly knowledgeable and above all honest, with their customer’s best interests at heart. I have no reservations in fully recommending them and have no doubt I will be back in future. Thanks again gents !! Jason
