The instructions they provide are pretty confusing, but a somewhat abridged guide (at least for my car) would be:

Remove the speaker grille that sits on the top of the dash
Loosen the two torx screws that are inside the cavity
Pull the centre screen outwards towards the back of the car
Undo the cables and disconnect the screen
Remove the centre console
Undo the two torx screws holding in the main media unit
Pull the main media unit out and disconnect the large block connector
Remove the optical cable plug from the main connector
Plug the optical connector into the block on the new wiring harness
Connect the new wiring harness to the old connector and the media unit
Run the required cables up to the screen area (this can be a bit fiddly)
Run the USB cable from the audio box into the centre console
Connect everything up to the screen (GPS antenna, audio box, stock screen cable, main cable) and install everything else in reverse order

The harness they send comes with a TON of connections on it for things like aftermarket cameras, making things a little confusing. Nearly all of them can be ignored for most people.
How long did it take you to do and did you run into any problems, did you need to disconnect battery or leave the key away from the car

Probably took a good few hours to make sure everything was nice and tidy. No problems that I can remember and I didn't disconnect the battery or leave the key away from the car

Nice one ShakyTom thanks, I see you've done a few mods including a few grill changes why did you change from the GTR style grill looked good.

It broke the alignment of the 360 camera with no way to fix it

Is this because they positioned the camera hole incorrectly?

Does audio get routed through the stock system just like the factory unit? Or does it use some type of aux/Bluetooth hack? I think some of the older units have had unusual ways of interfacing with the stock speakers, which is why I ask.

Also, looks like it has a SIM card slot? So it can get data either via tethering or via SIM?

Audio does get rooted through the stock system yes. Whether it will use aux/usb or bluetooth to do that will depend on your stock system I think.

I have not tried the sim card slot yet. The listing states it will only work with Asian sim cards but I have a few on order from different providers to try it anyway.

Hi

Sorry for insisting but this screen is growing on me...

Can you show both screens together? Looking in detail at your pictures looks like this screen fits much better than the oem one. Initally thought they were too similar

Many thanks

Can you please explain:

1. Lousy resolution on 10.25 inch screen, otherwise you would have chosen that size, and

2. 360 camera problem/issue you are having.

Thanks!

I thought ShakyTom said the 360 camera works fine?

I have one on the way already along with the CarPlay dongle so I can report back, I guess.

Me too

They asked me what my car was and told me it won’t work, so they agreed to cancel the order which I already paid.

Ask them, maybe does not work just in the c63...

I followed up with them to ask as well. Will report back, but it’s been shipped already so unless they confirm it doesn’t work and I can return it- then I guess I’ll try and find out?

Yes I know! Is quite strange right?

I ordered and paid by paypal. Then they sent me an email asking what mi car is. I told them is a c63s coupe of 2017 with comand, 360 and burmester. They come back saying the 360 is not fully supported. Also they offer me the 10.25 screen, which is supposed to be better and support the 360 camera.

Finally I asked them to cancel the order and they agreed with no issues...

I don´t understand.

My car has 360, Comand and Burmeister, all works as it should.

I suspect they got a little confused.

I got the response below from them so pretty sure it will be fine. I think there are advanced features if you are using a compatible 3rd party 360 camera system, and perhaps some other features on the 10.25” screen.

”Parktronic is compatible with this feature. 360 has no DVR function after the car has traveled more than 15KM/hour.

It is recommended to buy a 10.25 inch screen”
