Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.

Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.

Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.

If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area

If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel

If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area

For miscellaneous items, post:
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area

For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.

In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    Cantaloupe Radio Bluetooth Retrofit Kits for the CM5908 radio

    Ok, 48 of these kits are ready to ship! To get in line for one, post a reply indicating you'd like to purchase a kit.

    What is it?
    A plug-n-play kit that integrates Bluetooth streaming, phone calls, and voice assistance into the factory BMW CM5908 "slider" radio for period looks with modern tech. These kits are brand new, designed and manufactured by my company, Cantaloupe Radio. Check out more product details, installation procedure, and demo here. Note that although the demo video says otherwise, these are being sold ONLY for the CM5908 radio (see faceplate pic below if you don't know which is the CM5908) There has been a thread following my development of these over the last year here.

    How this will go down:
    - This is a r3vlimited-exclusive sale before these become available to the general public, hence the format
    - When you reserve a unit by posting here, I'll PM you a link within a few hours where you can complete checkout
    - Any units that are not claimed and paid for by Monday morning (3/19) will become available publicly
    - Limit 1 kit per person
    - US-based orders only for now. Shipping will be via USPS First Class mail
    - Optional installation service and the necessary 5-sided radio removal tool are also available on the website. Add them to your cart if you need them. If you purchase installation service, you'll receive mailing instructions via email after checkout.

    Price: $185 + shipping
    Optional installation service: $65

    I'll take one.

              In for one!


                I'll take one! This is cool.


                  I might be in for one or more depending on how many radios we have floating around.

                      this is impressive, nice work!

                      I wish I hadn't sold my CM5908 for like 20 bucks :[
                      cars beep boop


                        Any chance you'd be able to sell pre configured radios ready to go?
                        Don't have one to retro fit it into

                        Would be in for one without a doubt if that could work

                        And just to be sure, the cassette function is lost when this is retrofitted correct?
