E46 Radio X18126 Wiring Pin Out Diagram Chart

I haven't seen this elsewhere in the Forum, and thought posting it would help anyone upgrading to Nav or altering their radio sytem to an after-market unit.
Although I formatted it in plain text, I am not sure how to get this website to retain the column spacings - it seems to eliminate all extra spaces.

Looking at the face of the (illogically) numbered radio plug in the dash:

[blank space] --1
[blank space] ------2
5 ------4------3
----7-----17--------6
10-----9-------8
----13----12-------11
16-----15-----14


The stated pin numbers for the dash plug are different than the radio plug.

Looking at the remote trunk radio, or the back of it's plug:

1---5----9----13
2---6----10---14
3---7----11---15
4---8----12---16 10ampfuse

These are from my Haynes manual and the Nav Retrofit kit wiring diagrams, and various websites.
