Think this is the one you bought?
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3298...ba9614439ik9n8

Questions:

1) If the mounting points dont line up how did you secure it?

2) Any gaps between the new base and the old hole left by the old nav?

3) Do steering wheel functions work fine?

4) Did the aliexpress buyer send everything you needed or did you require seperately purchased wires/connectors?

5) Does OBD and TPMS work on the model you bought?

6) Any plans to remove the NAV DVD player behind the centre console?

Thanks

Questions:

1) If the mounting points dont line up how did you secure it?
Temporarily secured with zip ties. Ghetto but it works.

2) Any gaps between the new base and the old hole left by the old nav?
Yes the baseplate is too small, you can see a tiny gap on each side of the plate. (towards windshield not the driver)

3) Do steering wheel functions work fine?
Steering controls work fine for audio volume... remember you are using the AUX input to pump the audio.. you are not controlling the android screen with the steering wheel.

4) Did the aliexpress buyer send everything you needed or did you require seperately purchased wires/connectors?
Its mostly plug and play if you have the aux input. If not you need the aux input. The other thing I bought was apple car play for it.

5) Does OBD and TPMS work on the model you bought?
I do not have OBD and TPMS working. My guess is you could probably figure out how to tap into the proper wiring to get it to work, since this headunit would work with the X3.

6) Any plans to remove the NAV DVD player behind the centre console?
I left mine there. No plan to remove it at this time. In case there is ever a need to convert back to stock it will only take a moment.
See my comments above.
