Why must you have PDC for rear camera retrofit?
How much are either options? aftermarket or retro?

Sorry about not updating. I had to postpone the install - Christmas stuff got in the way and you know how it can be - husband is the last to know. LOL

I'm going to try and get it done right after January 1st

Just an FYI. According to Aleks, it's about a 3 hour job.

Patryk,

Can you shoot me a message with member pricing for F30 non-oem route. I am fairly comfortable installing myself and do as per instructions.

I am seriously tired of putting dents on car by parking in tight spots.

Camera installed! Works perfect! It took Aleks about two hours and he checked all the functions while putting everything back together again so there wouldn't be any "surprises" at the finish line. Every step of the way the car was protected to insure no scratches, dings or nicks happened. He even threw in a box of Christmas candy for my wife (she will love him for that).

Definitely recommend AlekShop in Fremont, CA

I'm looking to install the rear PDC. Haven't decided whether to go camera or not but it's looking a bit more tempting. I hear there is a rear PDC kit out there but in Europe only. Nothing in the States yet? I also heard I need programming. Do I ask the dealer to do it or could someone else do it? Could I do it?

Thanks.

I had BimmerTech retrofit BMW Apps and Rear PDC just a couple months ago, they really did a fantastic job, it's completely seamless and I strongly recommend them. Patryk Matysiak is a fantastic guy and has been helpful and quick.

I did mine myself very easy.
Some comments:
Route the camera cable using passenger side.
Pry parts with patience.
In my case Patryk told me to turn on dip pin5.
Double check connections.
Everything works at the end.
Bimmertech is great!, thanks to all that helped me, specially Patryk, you rock men.
