Mein Auto: 1995 530i
Aftermarket Stereo and OBC

Hey all,

Brand new to BMW and the forum here.

I have a 95 530i with a dead stereo. Was going to just get an aftermarket stereo from crutchfield but then I realized the on board computer might not sync with an aftermarket stereo. Anyone have an experience with this?

Also, anyone know where i could find a oem stereo as a replacement if i have no other option. Thanks!

First of all, Welcome to the 'Fest!

Aftermarket will work fine, just get the harness like any other stereo you'd install.
