    I have a Rover CD43 and would like to put it in my e30, but I don't like the Rover logo on it, seen loads on ebay with the Rover logo removed and BMW badge stuck over. Any idea how to do this without dissolving the plastic

    Chaps Reverting back to the original spec radio head unit. Managed to buy a CD43 from eBay. It has not got the little plastic rectangular caps that cover the two hex head screws. I expect they are rarer than unicorn horns made of rocking horse poo and hens teeth and reinforced with...

    I have the Becker Indianapolis pro upgraded in one car, but am thinking of returning the other car to stock. For this I can use the Cd 43 (non-stock but suitable) or the original rds cassette unit. For either unit, I will probably wire in and AUX cable to the cassette/Cd output for mp3 playing...

    Hi All Wanted to update the stereo in my wife's 840 (a cassette player is a bit dated) and noticed that the ''CD43'' as fitted to other BMWs and Rovers is a straight swap and retains the ''original equipment look''. Encouraged by this and the fact that the listings on e-Bay confirmed that it...

    Hey everyone, I started to experience this annoying problem with the BMW CD43 stereo that I installed last year in my E30. When listening to a CD and driving on a smooth road, the playback is clean with no problems. However, when the car goes over bumps or uneven surfaces, the CD is...

    Hi all, I recently bought a second hand CD43 to fit to my E36, and stumbled upon problems during installation. I disconnected the battery, replaced the old unit for the CD43 and re-connected the battery, at which point I noticed the little red light flashing on the unit. At the time I...

    Simples really, how do you save stations on the CD43 unit? You've got FM1, FM2 and FMA (What does FMA mean btw?) they all have pre-set stations under each of the 6 numbers, but I want my own saved. How do I do it? I've tried all sorts of combinations of tuning the station and holding the number...
