  2. ICE Upgrade

    E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi I want to upgrade the stereo. I get that there are some out there that will integrate to the steering wheel, but, what do you lose? I see the steering wheel integration as simply being volume, tracks, answer / hang up phone, etc, but, if you replace the stock stereo (I have the SatNav...

    F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hello All, I just bought a 320i 2012 (no X-Drive) yesterday. I have been driving a Honda Accord V6 1999 for the last many years. For sure, it was a huge shift for me in terms of driving when i switched to BMW e.g. RWD vs FWD, V6 Vs V4. However, i am extremely annoyed as well as scared with...
