  1. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    many months ago before I spent so long making-do with a dinky bluetooth speaker velcro-ed to my dash... I had a wondrous stereo that I believe came stock in my 2011 328xi. What snubbed this wondrous enjoyability... was accidentally dumping a pint of wonton soup over my dash. I believe it's just...
  2. X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    I know, i know, the story is long, yes, but i did write a short summary at the end, for easier refference:) We went on a holiday skiing, 450 km, in a day, not many stops, the car was completely fine, everything worked perfectly ( especially the traction control) temps were arround -8...
  3. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Had a friend try to add an amp and sub to my stock system in my 04 530i. Nothing worked on the new amp and sub, but now I have no sound from the speakers, only from the sub. Everything else works, removed added on amp and sub back to factory.

    Hi guys, I’m now the proud owner of a good condition 2001 535i. I’m having some issues on finding any information on SAP deletes, aftermarket exhausts and pretty much anything for the 535i. Every website Or thread I look at has lots of information for all the other 5 series engines besides the...

    What scan tool should I buy to diagnose electrical issues like stereo only working when it wants to ?
  6. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    Hi, I have a 2008 123d with a BMW Business stereo. When we bought the car it was not running because there had been a fire in the trunk (battery side so a lot of wires damaged..) It has now been repaired an the car is up and running. Still have some fault codes that we have to work out and...
  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi all, so I installed this head unit from eonon in 2016 and it only recently started not working[as in it would switch from radio to CD to bluetooth randomly] and I can't seem to find the issue. I've tried emailing their horrible support team to see if they had an update on the software, but...
  8. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi, Something very strange has started happening on my 1991 e30 318i convertible. My head unit will only turn on when I turn my hazards on. And will stay on with them regardless of whether the ignition is on or off. Previously the radio would only come on when the ignition was on. It just...
  9. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2001 325xi. There is an aftermarket radio installed. After troubleshooting it seems that when the amp is plugged in the fuse blows. With the amp unplugged the radio powers on fine. I am assuming the amp is blown. It is the E46/4 Alpine unit. Will the HK unit plug in an work or do I need...

  11. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello! Just got my first Bimmer, a 2006 X5. The display on the stereo is jacked and I can't find the manual for it online anywhere (it's not included in the owner's manuals I've found). I'm going to be replacing it, but in the meantime would like to know what all them buttons are for. If anyone...

  13. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hello, just did a stereo to top-hifi retrofit, and ran into some problems. First of all I have replaced complete harness from trunk to front, changed speakers, added DVD Changer and amplifier. Then supplied both dvd and amplifier with power supply (those was missing, becouse the wiring harness...
  14. G30 (2017 - Current)
    Hi everyone, new here. Just took delivery of my new 540 today and stupidly I didn’t pay much mind to which sound system was in it. Coming from an Audi with a B&O system which was fantastic, first impressions are the base system isn’t terrible but definitely not on the same level. Trying to...
  15. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Anyone able to find a newer model z4 OEM replacement stereo to fit in a 2007? One that includes Bluetooth and SiriusXM? I know that i can get an aftermarket with all the installation parts and fitted panel, but was hoping to find something that looks more like it was meant to be there from...
  16. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    hi, I have a battery drain. I have found the fuses that are causing the problem and removed them to stop the drain but cant figure out the problem. both of these need to be removed to stop the drain. R3 RELAY IN THE BACK (audio unit relay) and FUSE 72. (1st in line, the audio/nav fuse)...
  17. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    So I was on Metra's (makes dash kits for aftermarket radio installations), and happened upon their new catalog, and on page 18 (go to page 18) look what I found: http://metraonline.com/files/catalogs/METRA_CES2018_NEW_PRODUCT_GUIDE.pdf Here is the kit, the 95-9314B. It has a Double-DIN...
  18. Mobile Electronics and Lighting
    Hi all! I bought this head unit to see how plug and play it is in my 2005 X5 with DSP w/o navigation. It is kind of plug and play but required me to keep my MID and business CD and relocate them. Not gonna happen, so I am selling it. It was $350 + $50 for the extender cable. It also came with a...
  19. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Anyone in the Chicagoland or Wisconsin area know how to install/ code a CIC retrofit on an E60? If so, I am looking to patronize said service. Any recommendations of quality shops that do the aforementioned work would be appreciated as well.
  20. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I bought a used 2007 335i sport convertible, and I love it. The stereo unit's amber screen is pretty much shot, making it nearly impossible to use the radio in anyway except scanning for stations. I have read nightmare stories about replacing the amber-screen unit with something more...
