Dashcam install

Is there a place you would recommend to get a Dashcam installed?

I would prefer a BMW type shop that can do stuff like this as opposed to like a radio/electronicy shop...if that makes sense. I plan to do springs, and maybe even LCI tails so hoping to do it all at once..

Induktion looks like it's great for the springs/coding stuff but wondering about the Dashcam.

Thanks in advance, sorry if this is a repost.

Sure it is. You want a recommendation on where to get a cam installed. The best is your place of residence.

no shit, it's also the best place to do a lot of things... that's not the point. clearly i want someone to do it, and don't mind paying for it..

if your'e passively insinuating i should man up and do it myself, just say it and save some internet space... I've done a lot of things myself, this is not one I choose to for a variety of reasons I don't feel like i should have to explain

Cheers

I don't mind doing it. It will take me a few hours to do though.

Do you want to just plug it in the outlet or hardwire it?

I've done the former but not the latter. Lol

I appreciate the offer, all good though, for the above who asked thinking Blackvue 650...

500 an hour you can buy a lot of fun things

OP, it is relatively easy to DIY, ergo the above encouragement. The hardest part will be determining where you want the placement of the front camera if you get a 2ch system, verses the ease of the rear cam, and the method (XBATT, VREG) of hookup to the fuse panel, Check out the online videos and ask questions. Oh, wait, all these DIY advisers, what is it we do for a living??? I would be wary of the free offers, get some credentials....jk SOUL! Good luck in finding a place. There is no shame in saying you would rather have someone smarter than yourself put a critical system in your car. Could be some wisdom in that.
