X5/X6 Screen fitted in my BMW F30!

So I found this screen on eBay for 225, took the plunge and put my trust in vorph!

I also got the surround painted from silver to gloss black!

Check it out

In the video you had mentioned you cut some plastic from the black casing and from the bottom so the screen could sit flush. What part of the dash did you have to cut as well as the back casing of the screen?

There is about 5-6 places that need to be trimmed, most of it under/behind the screen on the actual dash.

You cut the the dash behind the screen?

At most, if you choose the cut the dash route, which is optional, the only cut needed is to lengthing the opening underneath the screen by about an inch in each direction.
