    Hi

    Please prefix all of your thread titles with

    1998 E46 328i - your title here

    as per the posting rules.
    it makes it much easier for us to manage the forum and for others to search it.

    ok, what stereo is it that you have in currently?

    make and model please... I dont recall my last E36 stereo having that connector but I could be wrong

    Ahh... got it

    I think this is what you need

    e36 stereo iso adapter

    On recalling it I think my connector was the same and it plugs into the big end of the ISo adapter (no surprise there!!) and then you have your ISO ready and working

    Cheers for that chap. i'll ask the guy for a picture of the ISO adaptor from the front. i have bought the SOC-060 for my bluetooth but not the right one. i want to fit a sstereo too so trhis will be perfect if its correct.

    P.S. doesnt seem to want to get rid of E36 on the car title and put E46. guess this puts E36 when you put the year the car is made?

    Forget the link I sent you.

    This is what you need

    it may not look ideal from the picture, but Im almost positive your plug will click into the socket part. i will get our resident hi fi man to check
