Hey Everyone

I'm not too far away from a 5 head set of TMGs. Just waiting on that email saying they're back in stock! While I wait, I've been trying to plan out where I'll be installing on my 340. It's a lease so no permanent damage is a must.

For the rear, I think I'm just going with the pretty basic one head on each side under the trunk lid (A & B in pic but obviously not as crooked). Will most likely make a small notch and snake the cable out where the lp lights are.

For the front I still haven't decided where would be most effective to mount. 3&4 would probably be the easiest, but I'm not sure if that's too low. Need to keep the front plate since I'm in NY a lot. I was thinking for the center, either right under the plate (6) or buy/make a bracket for location 5, but the head would be completely sticking out.

1&2 I'm a little unsure of since the heads will have to be mounted vertically and I know there is definitely DET in NY where I drive.

A few more pics at different angles and w/o numbers to use for different suggestions.

Let me know if there is any more info you need or any measurements that would help. I appreciate any and all help/suggestions I can get!

Thanks

I have my ALP install thread on here on my 2017 330i. I had two dual heads mounted horizontal with brackets I custom built into the kidneys. I tried the bottom lip but it seems to low and I felt the hood was unprotected. Thankfully with the TMG system it says in the user manual you can run the heads vertical in kidneys as long as you have one horizontal head I believe. Someone with a TMG system should be able to chime in as to official verbiage from the manual! Here’s a pic of my ALP duals install horizontal on the kidneys

@kyle13 that's awesome. Do you have a pic of the bracket? I might do the same and then put the 3rd head in my 5 or 6 spot
