    Hi, can anyone help? Currently i have a business radio fitted. Radio reception is fine unless I switch on rear demist n which case I lose all reception and just get loud static. I think it could be the antenna module on the c pillar or alternatively some form of earth failure but I wondered if...

    So to start I have a 2000 BMW 323ci with a 2002 radio (different antenna connector). I was looking for a way to replace the old antenna as I had terrible reception, I got a new amplifier and it did nothing so I decided I was going to replace my entire antenna wire but couldn't find any connector...

    Oops. After finally popping the rear tailgate window with the manual release, I went on to remove the glass hatch. And that is where my clumsiness struck, I damaged the most rightern connector to a point of no repair. In the picture you will see the most rightern connector how it is supposed to...

    My car is a 2000 E46 4 door with factory radio. I saw this sharkfin antenna on a newer E46 model, and wanted someone to tell me if this antenna is strictly for navigation, Sat radio, or what? I know my car has the radio antenna box connected to the wires in the rear window, so I am assuming that...

    So this is something I don't expect many people to comment on, but hopefully in the future, it will be searchable and helpful for people in the future. In all other markets except the United States, Canada and Mexico -- there was a Navigation option available called "Business Navigation" --...

    My '04 330Ci 'vert apparently had Assist added by the dealer since it has the box in the trunk, a mic, and the SOS mirror, but it does not include Bluetooth phone functionality. So I've found a TCU with Assist and Bluetooth from an '05 car and am ready to go. Or am I? Do I also need the...

    Hello all, This is actually my first time posting on the forum; although I am constantly reading threads on here daily during my free time. :thumbup: After months of facing the fact that I have no radio, I have finally decided to turn to you guys for help. I have searched everywhere on the...

    My 2001 325i has a few wierd issues with the radio that I hope someone has a solution to. The radio works fine and gets good reception (stock BMW Business CD, not the Harmann Kardon package) and the rear defroster works. When I have both on, the radio reception cuts out to static on most...

    I'd like to improve my AM reception on my '06 330 CiC, so I bought a bimmian antenna. (The kind that goes on the back of the car near the deck lid). BTW, the Head Unit is the HK w/Nav. When I installed it I noticed that both it and my old antenna got better AM reception when I was touching the...

    I have located a bluetooth tcu and mic and have ordered the bluetooth antenna. But I am not sure about installing the mic. I removed a TCU and mic from a salvaged 2005 330xi. I removed the sunroof switch panel, but I'm not sure if I've found the correct mic connector. The connector is a 3 pin...
