Thanks a lot, look forward to it

I've been a little worried about installing it, 19K on a car then start p*ssing around trying to install extra stuff :confused:

The Origin is a really easy install, if you fit it where mine is all the extra wires hide either under the steering wheel housing, which removes easily and there is also a little cuppy storage area for wires on the right of the dash (have to open the door to see this one;))
All wires hide away easily and tidy, with very little effort:D

Mine is just to the left of the right window pillar. I got the local BMW dealer to do it but they charged me 2 hours labour which I don't quite understand as it only took them less than an hour to install it in my M3. Go figure? :confused:

Fairly common for car speedos to under-read. That's why the police normally give you a 10% error factor if you get stopped. The GPS speed comes right from the satellite so it should be the more accurate one.

yeah did that update this week after I read it on the site:D

I have noticed a difference in speed, and like Stovie said the Origin is more acurate, as I have compared Origin, Speedo and Sat Nav speeds, the speedo is always the one out;)

oh and mine is fitted like Stovies, but I don't seem to have any pics on file:confused:

Apparently the cable coming out the craddle can be moved to the right side to make it even tidier, but I have not tried this yet, might try next week:)

Yes it does,I have done this on mine.
But do be careful when you take it apart as some magnets will come out.

LOL, I am not known for being careful so might just leave it as it is seeing as it is stuck to the dash:D

thanks for the tip off;)
