hey buddy i should have the answer to your problem....alpine has two remote wires one is for the power ant. and the other is for the amps. i think the solid blue is for the power ant. so when the radio is on it sends out a signal to the amp, but when the cd is on it cuts the signal so your ant goes down. bimmer don't have power ants. so it is not needed. the blue and white one is used for amp turn and whether or not you use cd or radio it sends a signal to the amp. so this check these wires they should be listed on the radio shell. hopefully this answer you problem text me back if it does. peace
