Very tempting and not extrotionately priced.

Same thing on Aliexpress costs $1.31 more but free shipping and no worry as to with or without VAT.

it like he stole it.
OP - the touchscreen you posted is for the Pre-Facelift, correct?

Here is one for the Facelift taken off a different forum:

Correct, however if you click the CKM Car link, there is the option for Facelift.

Im just curious if anyone has one yet?

My only concern with CKM is the ancient version of Android it's running.

That does look very cool. It really updates the interior for both PFL and FL.

They have have a few other interesting and unique items there too. Check this one out:

Yeah, idk about it either... I've never liked the design of a stick on iPad, but the perks and benefits of this would be awesome.

Very tempted in picking this up for my 2014, though I must admit, I think it looks better installed in the PFL :/

The benefits definitely make it interesting. Looks like a pretty easy install too. Would love to finally have proper blue tooth audio in the car

Can you post more pics of your interior? I'd like to see how it looks in the grand scheme of things. Thank you!

TBH thinking about it some more and and i dont think anything changes RHD vs LHD in the Pre Facelift. It all still goes in the same spot. Just some confirmation would be nice cause i dont need an $800 paperweight heh

I'm waiting to hear back on the Android version because Android system 5.1.1 (Lolipop) is pretty much EOL. You won't have support for new app versions, google maps, etc...

I almost bought this unit myself. Unfortunately, there was some discovered issues with the unit which made me hold off unit this little quirks were resolved.
1) the phone function where you are on a call, the sound only comes out of the front left tweeter.
2) if you have the prefacelift command unit then you'll have to use this converter box which has some intermittent issues with it as well.
3) the tachometer and speedometer display on the screen only shows in KM, not mileage
4) it's running an older version of Android, not the latest or second newest version
5) Doesn't have the latest CPU processor in it (snapdragon)
6) The built in app which is supposibly for a front camera, does not actually work. You could install a dashcam and even plug the camera into the correct port on the back of the unit, but the app will not work, yet. This must be an upgrade or anticipated function in the works.

and there were a couple of other items on the list which on another post people were requesting to have the unit be upgraded to since this display unit is an actual self contained Android unit, like a smart phone. But nothing from China manufacturer on if they're going to do anything, yet.

I think I'm going to wait unit they come out with a Gen 2 or 3 before buying and upgrading my screen.
