I can only suggest trying again with the 40 pin block into the BM54 - the first time I plugged it in, it felt like it was inserted correctly. It was only after unplugging it and slowly inserting it in again everything fired up.

The first time, the oem head unit would only display the car stats like it does when the radio is turned off. The left button didn't do anything until I re-plugged the 40 pin block into the BM54.

Does yours do that as well?

Check the pins in the BM54 are all straight and in the correct position to marry up with the new loom.

Latest update.

Just spent 5 hours on the drive fitting the new head unit.

Everything important is in place - apart from all the bits like the glove box, dashboard etc so I will be testing further tomorrow and putting it all back together then. BBQ was on and I needed a beer.

Notes:

The air vents are a pig to remove. Keep at them, bending the clips as much as possible

You have to remove the glove box - to park the oem head unit into and to make it easier to run the new loom. And it's a pain. Not looking forward to put it back tomorrow

You have to cut the back of the head unit dash holder to allow the new head unit to fit. There are no screws to hold it in but I will be looking into some sort of glue to fix that if it moves around.

Mounting the oem head unit in the glove box is required for it to keep the DSP alive. If you thought the usable space in the glove box was a joke then its even funnier when you have to remove the insert to allow the door to shut. So forget having a glove box you can put things into.

When I powered it up in situ to test - no audio. However, everything was powered up and on full volume. Apart from the wheel controls. After turning the volume up on those, audio came out of the speakers and after 4.5 hours in the sun, I almost cried in joy.

Nigelpugh - did you increase the volume on the steering wheel on your install?

After letting the device update to the latest version of Google Play store and setting the correct time zone, I was able to install my preferred apps - Audible, Tom Tom Go and Spotify

Boots up with a BMW logo - pretty sure an update will sort that out.

The loom to the back is not hidden but I'll tackle that once everything is working and everything is ready for the final screw down.

So I've broken the back of the job and the wife is walking to work tomorrow as I've just dumped all the bits in the boot!

You can change the startup screen in Factory settings, pin to get in is usually 126 but maybe something else, google the head unit you have to find it... you can also use a custom one... a few I have can be found at this link which I will leave up for a while...

Cheers.

I found the factory setting so will upload one of your RR logos tomorrow. The password for my model was '123456' if that helps anyone

Thanks - I did see that unit in an earlier thread but IIRC it's about £120 so decided for now that the head unit is staying!

I might change my mind later - the head unit in glove box works but I have to remember to turn it on to get more volume and working steering wheel controls.

Apart from that issue, everything is working very well and I've replaced the standard launder with "Car Launcher Pro" which makes the display a lot easier to manage and gives a nice virtual analogue clock on the dash
