    Aftermarket electronics experience?

    Ive been looking at adding some aftermarket assistance features (BSW, ADAS, etc) and noticed some want to connect to OBD-II. I also saw a post saying that 500e either doesnt have OBD-II or that that wiring is different.

    Any one have experience with this?

    It will be hard.
    It is kind of OBD II port with some different protocols to connect to certain areas (ECU and battery is "regular" OBD II, TPMS, brakes, and many others - different protocol, specific for FIAT).

    I am not sure if it is even possible to add those features to this car.

    Quick update in case others were also curious. As long as your aftermarket stuff isn't OBD-II based you'll be just fine, I've confirmed it's a bad time otherwise. Basically treat it like a vehicle without it - find adapters for what you can, tap everything else.

    After a few months of research and experimenting I landed on a head unit replacement to support a 4 camera system. Depending on the parts you can DIY this solution starting at probably $600. I was quoted $1.5k but did the job for less with a better HU. I went this route because it practically solved all my problems for less while getting a nicer stereo and multi angle dash cam.

    For those looking to add the specific items I mentioned:

    ADAS - Mobileye seems to be the best and has an add-on kit to bypass the ODB-II requirement. Unit and install are quite hefty due to additional wiring and configuration. I was quoted $2k. DIY doesn't seem to be an option as it requires software to configure and calibrate. There are cheaper DIY systems but they all appear to be little more than novelty.

    BSW - Rydeen BSS2x seems to have the most modern/OEM blind spot warning system and doesn't require OBD-II where most similar kits do. Since its riveted behind the bumper install can be tedious compared to a license plate based system, but it's actually bi-directional which is what you get on most new cars. I was quoted $1.6k. The adventurous could DIY for much less, especially if you go with a cheaper uni-directional or last gen system.
