Question Stereo reciever options??

I am trying to find out what stereo receivers will fit in my 88 325e. I just want something that is iPhone/ipod ready, with an aux cable input. Any suggestions? I'm sure there are plenty, I just can't find them for some reason. Thanks!

have you even tried? walmart, target, kmart has them, best buy, radioshack, theres plenty of car audio places that can just replace the deck, to a full bore competition system.

Any normal deck will work its just the wiring you have to worry about they dont make a wiring harness for a e30 so youll have to cut the wires to make the deck work

I put a Pioneer DEH-4300UB in my vert. Good unit that is inexpensive (about $110) and the button/face colors are customizable so you can match them to your amber dash lights.

Ok so here you go

Car wiring. Wire. Deck.

Purple/white. Ing. Red.
Brown/black. Ground. Black.
Red/green. Power. Yellow.

This will get the deck working an make it turn on

the speaker are a bit odd im looking for it now but i think there are 2 positive on one side (front an back speakers)but only 1 ground for that side

so you have 4 positives (each speaker) an 2 grounds (left an right speakers)
