I'll take a pic of it for you guys when I pickup my car.
I don't think I'm going to do the full harness, actually. I talked to my old co-mechanics yesterday and she was excited to hear about the project. She offered up a few "while you're in there" items to inspect and/or replace while the motor and trans were out of the car.

Had I found a ZHP with Nav, I would have absolutely done that retrofit. As it is, I'm happy with what I'll be getting out of the donor parts-car.

Building a ZHP wagon... click the pic!!!
Because BMW wouldn't do it for me
