Perhaps for many people, owning a BMW is one of their life goals. This is also my dream, and it’s worth celebrating that I finally got a BMW ten months ago, even it’s just a second-hand 2016 BMW X1 F48. I love it so much and often drive it for picnic, camping, road trips etc.
A few weeks ago, I made up my mind to make my BMW better, while the first thing I done was to upgrade the original radio screen. I just finished the installation with the help of my brother last week. You can find all the instructions in following content.
