For me, one of the most exciting moments was gifted a BMW E60 from my uncle at my 22nd birthday. You can imagine that how I love it so much!
Even if it has been used for 5 years, the BMW E60 is still almost perfect for me, but sure there is room to be changed, right? Last month, I removed the old radio screen and installed an upgraded touchscreen in the car. Not for special reasons, but I think there should be some changes in my car and replacing the original screen may be a good start.
Thankfully, it was not so hard to do the replacement, I finished the work myself. You’ll find instruction of every step below.
