Watching TV at high speed

6 posts in this topic

Hi Guys

I've just recently purchased a brand-spanking new M3 coupe and I LOVE it, I can watch digital tv which is pretty cool until i start moving. Apparently this cut-off feature is for safety reasons, but there must be a way to disable it? Any ideas?

Thanks

Jonny

I heard that the cables off eBay were rubbish and didn't do the job. The kit from Birds is about £200.

However, you need to be aware that there are insurance implications too. You HAVE to tell them if you override a safety feature on the car, especially this one. If you don't, and you have a smash, you've modified your car without telling them and it's major pants pooing time.

Incidentally, the premium they put onto it for removing the feature is a big one. I asked about it and then decided against it....they wanted 20% more.

Here is the proper kit though... TV in Motion

why so much? i thought the whole purpose of the lead was to fool the system into thinking the car was not moving? Surely tht could be done for a simple £50 max?

I have one...£50 from eBay.... 169144-ok.gif

Works wonders, and wether you pay £50 or £200 they will do exactly the same thing...the picture will be litle jumpy when on the move..though this is expected... smile.gif
