    Does anyone know what sort of speakers and amplifier the stock E46 compact stereo (not hifi, not HK) uses? I'm having trouble finding any info specifically about the compact, because so far looking at repair manuals none of the info that's shared with the sedan/wagon or even coupe is matching...

    Hi! Installed an aftermarket head unit around a year back, but when i removed the stock radio, i found that the radio connector plug terminal was already broken. The head unit would still plug into it but it wouldn’t lock so every few weeks it would keep disconnecting and i’d have to open...

    Hello all, I just picked up a 325i with a hizpo unit already installed. It has some obd app on it that I tried to launch and it asked to "pair" but I have no sort of obd connection as far as I can tell. I expected as much but I am wondering if anyone has any experience with these units and...

    Hello all, I got an aux adapter and plugged it in where the cd changer plug would go in the back of the head unit. I opened the dash to wire the aux input by the cigarette lighter plug. It all worked well and the music was playing fine. However I noticed that the car wouldn't start, I thought it...

    Installed the Eonon GA9450D head unit in my 2001 330ci and once everything was plugged up and back in place including the AC Control Unit and once i turned the car on it had no power and I turned the headlights on and it went full blast. I've tried unplugging the head unit completely and leaving...

    Bought this bmw (2000 323i, no fancy upgrades in terms of trim level as far as I know) in November after sitting for 10 years. It appears the previous owner had a sub (the blue wire along with the red and black tubed wire run to the trunk) For the head unit wiring, any suggestions. Is there a...

    I have a 2004 E46 touring. I'd like to order an Avia Avant 4 in the near future, and I saw there is an option for those who already have a navigation module in the car. My nav is faulty, but I still have it with all of its components. So I'd like to order with the option that is written above...

    Hey guys, When I am relocating my climate control panel do I need the adaptor bracket to put the climate control panel below where the dynavin unit would go. I have seen lots of videos where everyone seems to have bought the climate control adaptor bracket but that will not work because I have a...

    Hey guys. I'm looking for a nice looking Head Unit that get's the job done, job being mainly playing music via bluetooth, and looks OEM or at least not completely out of place. I have seen products by Eonon but they are way out of my budget. So yeah if you have any suggestions they will be...

    Sometimes my head unit crashes, which is a problem in and of itself, but right now I'm more interested in this "safe mode" (2nd image). Is there any way to return to the normal mode? Any ideas about what could be causing the crashes? Basically, the screen goes blank with a little bit of flicker...

    Installed some halo bulbs on my 330ci and all was good until I put my normal headlights on and then my OEM head unit screen intermittently turned off and on (the screen doesnt turn on and off if all lights are turned off). My music continued to play but the screen would just reset. anyone dealt...

    Before I get bugged about not looking on the forum for this, every post about this topic is a few years old by now so I'm trying to find the options available today. My car is a series 2 e46 with the MKIV satnav in it already, so it already has the climate control moved down as well as the...

    Hello Everyone, I recently installed the AVIN Avant 4 and it’s truly one of the best upgrades I’ve made to my M3 thus far. I also made an install video to detail the process to help any of you thinking of getting one yourself. I walk through installing the rear view camera, relocation bracket...

    Recently purchased an Eonon head unit that features Apple Carplay. The unit is great and carplay works, but there's static noise when connecting my phone via Bluetooth/USB (but the regular radio function sounds fine, no static). I had to route a wiring harness to the trunk (OEM Nav), and I...

    I'm trying to put my 2006 E46 conv back in shape with everything original (costly). One of the issues I have is with the head unit screen. It's working well but the eject button is not responsive and the screen doesn't tilt open. I managed to lift it open manually with the unit switched...

    Hey everyone, Looking to maybe purchase a car-play compatible head-unit for my 05 M3. I currently have an bluetooth alpine receiver. Any recommendations? Want something sleek that blends in and doesn't stick out too much from the color-scheme/contours of the car. Thanks

    Hey everyone. My 330i has developed some rattling in the mid-range door speakers. I'd like to replace them and get a bit of an upgrade. My plan now is to replace the lower door and rear deck speakers with a JBL unit, but I can't seem to find a replacement speaker for the mid-range or tweeters...

    Hi everyone, I have a 2006 325Ci (US spec, facelift coupe) without the Harmon Kardon option and I already started a project on replacing the sound system. I was trying to find out why the speakers weren't making any sound with an aftermarket amp. My planned setup was to have a tablet, headphone...
