    I have a 1996 320i convertible with a bee sting aerial fitted to the O/S/R wing. I would like to fit an electric aerial and have it go up when the factory fitted radio cassette is switched on. Is there any provision within the wiring look to attach the power for this and if so what is the colour of the wire and location ie boot or behind radio. If there is no provision where would I wire the aerial to be able to do this, what colour wire and where would it be found?
    Thank you in anticipation

    The live can be tapped straight off the battery (use an in-line fuse) and there are plenty of earths in the boot. You'll need to run the "signal" wire from the radio into the boot as there's no wiring for this in the loom. Depends on the unit whether or not it has the ability to "trigger" an aerial but it should be the white wire in the radio connector.
