So I’m not 100% sure what option to go with to upgrade the stereo system in my 2006 325Ci E46 Coupe.

Factory features: SAT NAV wide screen, Tv, reverse camera (currently not working), Bluetooth mobile phone connection with steering wheel controls

I want to be able to play songs and watch vid clips and/or movies from a usb stick.

Thinking at this stage the “Dice Mediabridge MB1500” retailing on ebay for around $540 (pic#1)

I want to be able to put my music on a usb stick and play it through my original head unit with song details appearing on screen, (if possible)
Also if I can not find a reasonable priced solution to my reverse camera issue, this unit should also accommodate an aftermarket OEM cam.
Can I achieve my goal with a cheaper alternative? (including vid clips, etc)
Anyone done so or is this mediabridge the one?

Moving onto the hardware of the sound sytem:
I’m thinking I will need the “PAC SOEM-4, Universal 4-channel line output converter” ($70) (pic#2)

Then swap: the rear speakers out for something like this:

**A set of 6” splits in the front and maybe in the rear instead of previous option (2ways)** :thumbsup::thumbsup:

These will be attached to these:

Is there a better way to achieve what I’m hoping with different modules etc.??
:hmm: :hmm: :hmm: :hmm: :hmm: :hmm: :hmm: :hmm: :hmm:
