Hi guys

Yet another post from old me,,
Anyone can help me provide me with some help for installion Amplifier in my car, I got the Buisness Radio with Casette and CD Changer in the boot, NO Factory amplifier installed no wires left side so is bad but I am not sure all I need to know is if I can mess anything up for the stearing wheel controls if integrating it like all other normal radios that doesnt have the AUX output pre-installed ?
I found this for it else I got all necessary wires, amplifier, fuseboxes HIGH Quality

im guessing, so don't quote me (unless im right) Smile

your stereo is a digital setup from the factory, and no matter what you do, this connection will be very difficult unless you

- replace the head unit
- replace the wires (usually just ensure they are redirected ...just to power, and speakers, not through any BMW componants)

its not easy, but i helped my friend setup his m5 with an after market amplifier, and the only way we could get it to work was by (literally) re-wiring everything.


a few notes.
wires don't necessarily need to be really big/ thick...i would suggest getting (by the foot) wires from benchmark
14350 Northeast 21st Street
Bellevue, WA 98007-3762
(425) 614-4100

talk to them about the wires they use, ( its not proprietary but its close) and you should be able wrap this job up for pennies on the dollar)

i don't think they will sell it online, but they literally gave me about 15 feet of it when i asked about it at one of their BBQ's...and they only do high end cars. i mean i've never NOT seen an exotic car there...people will buy a brand new Lamborghini and have a new stereo installed by them.... and yes, i live within a few miles of a lamborghini dealership/ rolls royce, ferarri, you name it.we got it. sure makes driving to a local market fun....
