How did you get the baffle material under the dash piece? That piece simply un-clipped, you put the baffle's in, and re-clipped it in place?

Nothing to unclip. There was just enough gap between the top of the firewall and the dash to slide the baffle in. The window hides that area with its black trim. I'll try to post some more detailed pics tomorrow. The installer took a bunch - just have to get them from him.

Did you already know the gap was there before pulling the windshield? I am just wondering if most vehicles are made this way.

Nope... Went into this completely blind heh. I told my installer friend where I wanted them, and he said well we either pull the dash or the windshield. Windshield was the right choice.

Default Re: BMW E46 Kick Refinish

Yeah, that was a good call. So if that gap hadn't been there, you would have just pulled the dash just enough to slide the baffle in?

Seems like this could be a good way to add a center channel.

Default Re: BMW E46 Kick Refinish

Yeah, definitely.

Actually I was looking back through some of what he sent me and there is a pic that pretty clearly shows the baffle. You can see it screwed down here, too.



Also here's one of the back of the grills, with foam to prevent any chance of front waves playing under the dash.



Not sure if he took any pics of the center baffle or not. But it is much like the other two.

Well after swearing I'd never change the OEM source because everything else just looks tacky...I changed my mind. I've had aftermarket single din units in the car before and was just never happy with the aftermarket off-centered dash kit.

Found this OEM BMW piece for the BMW single din traffic pro unit, which has a different centered cage and OEM bezel.

This should look half way decent, anyway. And retain steering wheel controls + add a remote.





Sigh...last minute changes.

Deck is now amber to match the dash lights.

Took my installer some tangerine film and he said it took 3 minutes.

I was pretty happy with my center focus.

But today I went through the stereo graphic eq in the deck with some band-isolated pink noise and got everything jiving.

HOLY CRAP! If it was focused before, now it's pin-point focused. Super happy!

Here's a better pic.

I really just wanted to come back and say "Excuse me, I believe you have my stapler." After John's post regarding where they put you guys. Wish I'd have gotten a chance to hear this.

You did pretty well, didn't you? I remember hearing your name at the awards ceremony, but don't remember what class. I was fighting to keep my eyes open at that point.
