Installing this isn't for the faint of heart, but if you're handy, its not that bad.

Motorola L2000/L7089 + car install kit.
In the E46, it will utilize the factory speaker under the steering column, the roofmount antenna (or add-on M3 sharkfin one if you have a 01+ 2/4dr), and the factory harness under the center console for power and access to the aforementioned speaker. You'll need to route the included mic to an appropriate location, build a wiring harness to connect to the car, get a mounting bracket, and that's it! :thumb: The setup worked perfectly in my own car for months, until I got a new phone and installed a new kit for it.
