  1. BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series

If it has a fakra connection on to the aerial base or an amp I would rather purchase a pre made section...

    First post. Recently bought my first BMW: an 2004 E46 325i. The First thing I did was take out the business tape deck and replaced it with a single DIN JVC unit. I did buy a window mount DAB aerial for about a tenner on eBay, but having noticed the stock aerial used an SMB connector, I thought...
