I doubt it. Usually the harnesses are for Hyundai and similar. Unless you are 'good' its a trip to a radio installer. BTW the three worst people to follow into a dash are 1) Radio installers 2) Alarm and Imobiliser installers and 3) Plumbers. Hope you know a good one.

a BMW one is available, i have some in stock, but the problem is that there are several different BMW plugs. if they show you one, make sure the plug looks like an L shape, thats the plug that the E34, E32 and E36 use

Wow! A place where they know more makes than Ford, Holden and Hyundai. Just be careful and follow the instructions to the letter.
