WTB Radio/Speakers for '88 M5

Hello. I'm looking for a stock replacement radio for my '88 M5, and maybe one or two of the speakers that would be in the front passenger area (window pod and foot well).

Also, my outside temperature gage now seems to be showing "PPPP" instead of a temperature reading. Any advice on that would be great.

I'm located east of Pittsburgh PA.

Thanks

SNR

With the speakers I have those. I can do 10 each plus shipping. With the outside temp, most likely your sensor has died. It is not uncommon. The sensor is on the DS on the valance.

Thank you, Andy.

I want to find a radio replacement before I proceed with speakers. So I will keep you posted.

Thanks also on the temperature gage.

If I may ask, is "DS" for "Driver's Side," and what is the "valance?"

Thanks.

SNR

SNR I'm not sure if this will fit but I just listed it.

Model #, Part #, Serial # are listed so you should be able to determine if it would fit or not as its from my 1997 328is (RIP).

Try disconnecting the battery for a while to reset your OBC. It should flash the semi colon when powered up but not setup yet. when the outisde temperature sensor goes bad it typically displays "-60F" or some weird numbers like that.
