MINI COOPER. RVC Help!

Postby ciclo » Fri Aug 12, 2016 7:09 am

Hello everyone, I need a bit of help with a Mini Cooper and I guess English people are the best to give me a good advise or help me.

Here goes the matter:
My brother's wife has a Mini Cooper D 2015 and wants to install a Rear View Camera. 'ORIGINAL part'.

Where I can buy a Kit (RVC + wiring)? (if possible).
Does it need some sort of activation in radio-navigator system or in parking sensors unit?

Other minor questions:
Do you know any link to DIY?
Wiring diagram?

Many thanks for your replies.

With the way the interior centre console is laid out, and that Mini is owned by BMW they make it so you can't retrofit this stuff or very hard to. There doesn't seem to be any genuine parts for sale here in the uk that I can see.

Think your best bet would be to get a small screen the size of an iphone or so to fit next to one of the cluster dial that is independently for a aftermarket reversing camera.

Thank you very much for the time dedicated to my question. :wink:

Yes, it seems that there is no original rear view camera for the MINI exact model that has my brother's wife (due to the tailgate model).

It will have to be something like this:

No problem you help out enough people :lol: :lol: and if that method you looked at is too much hassle just go for the universal parking sensor aka tow bar! :lol: :lol:

:) Yes, it is a widely used sensor (seems that around the world).
The license plates perfectly know which is this sensor.

Is this love?
Who is the culprit? :mrgreen:
