    What does PDC stand for? (m)

    In the accessory brochure and a few online places (circleBMW, pacificBMW) there's a reference to the aerokits for the coupe as with or without "PDC"...What is it?

    Option on 328, kit for 323. I just installed it(m)

    The Parking Distance Control is only available as an option for 328/330's. You can buy and install the BMW PDC kit for 323's. I just finished installing it on my 323Ci.

    My kit is specific to 323Ci, but... (m)

    Well, DB, I'm not sure! My kit was designed for left- or right-hand drive cars so my guess is it's for overseas cars, too. My bumper strip replacement insert looks exactly like the one in your photo. The kit's harness connects to the fusebox and to a connector box above it, and if their wiring layout is the same as mine, it should work.

    The coupe and sedan versions are different since the harness routing varies slightly.

    There's a bracket under the right-side trunk upholstery near the battery where the Control Unit is mounted.

    My guess is that it will work, but you'd need a return guarantee if it doesn't. I'll bet the BMW technical hotline will know for sure. To use the hotline, I called the Technical Service Rep at my dealer's, and he forwarded my questions about the PDC kit wiring to BMW then called me back with the answers. It worked.

    Sorry, Val! It's installed but... (m)

    I had it activated, someone walked behind, and not a peep! How disappointing. So, you can't either, not for a little while at least.

    It's not working for some reason, so I've got to recheck some things. There are five kit wires that splice into some main harnesses and one of those could be cold, or it's possible that the gong or control unit is defective. Reality, though, points to me being defective!

    By the way, I photographed the entire process, including all the trim piece attachments, bumper, and wiring details. I've also kept track of the installation manual typos and errors (some of which are serious). So if anyone else tries this, I hope I can make life a lot easier for them.

    I'll keep you posted.
