    hi guys,

    Ive bought myself an E46 320d , full option, with the 16:9 head unit /mk4 dvd unit..

    But they have broken into my car and stole my mk4 navigation system, and the radio module.; Also they have cut through all the cables running to the audio equipment in the trunk..

    Now, i have decided to put a 2 DIN cd /mp3 thing into my car..

    But how can i do this? Are there connectors where radio has to go, that i directly can connect to radio (direct speaker connection)? Or do they run to the back of my car to my (bmw stock amp) .. which isnt possible anymore, because they have cut through all my cables..

    What is the best thing i can do?

    Thanks!

    Essentially you'll need to run new speaker cables to the head-unit location. It might just be easiest to pick them up at the amp location in the boot where they have already been cut. You then need to attach an ISO connector at the HU end.

    Power should be easier. You should find earth, constant 12v and switched 12v which can be wired to the other ISO plug.

    If all this sounds daunting get a specialist to do it. You don't want to torch your car!
