    I have an OEM iPod interface that currently connects to a 30 pin cord. I was wondering if anyone had tried using an adaptor from the 30pin to lightning or 30 pin to aux and if it works. Looking to play music off my phone and wondering which of the options works for newer gen iphones.

    Hello Recently, I became a proud owner of a 2002 bmw e46 320d touring. I love the car, but since it is not new, obviously there are some small problems, specially in places where plastic parts are involved. One of these places is the business cassette radio unit, where the volume knob became...

    Hi everyone, sorry if this has been answered to death however I’m struggling to find a concise answer. I have a RHD 2002 330ci manufactured 10/2002 which from my research means there is an easy plug and play adapter I can buy. The problem is my car has the BMW Business Cassette deck (RCC100-04)...

    I finally finished my bluetooth install on the stock Business head unit. Includes Hands Free calling, and it's completely hidden, no wires visible. It's a relatively straightforward setup running over AUX, so no steering wheel controls (other than volume) Figured I'd share if anyone else wants...

    First of all I know this is the wrong sub-forum but it seems like the audio forum doesn't get much attention. I recently came across a used grom bt3 module for an e46. All the wires are making good contact, and I installed the 10 pin connector according to the instructions book. On my iPhone...

    Hi, Could someone help me with identifying whether my Business CD unit supports AUX IN? Based on threads I've run into here it should be OK, but I couldn't get one cable I ordered online work. The unit has a MODE button, and at the back there are two free slots for 10-pin cables. Here are the...

    Hey guys, can anyone recommend an AUX audio input kit for my June 2002 330ci? I found a few old threads but they keep mentioning 330's mfged after September for some reason? Why is this? I found a few kits but they seem pricey @ $200... Thanks! And to be clear I don't want to plug an...

    So earlier last week I was driving to someones house and decided I want to listen to some music. However, I was too lazy to plug the aux cable into my phone and choose a song seeing as how this house was only a mile or two away. I decided to switch to the radio which I have not done in probably...
