Says E39 and E38. Weird. Iv done aftermarket systems on both E38's and E39's and there not the same in that area. Maybe they sell the E38 one with a differant housing but the one in the pic is E39 and wont fit unless you do some custom work.
if you do it let us know how it turns out. I love the look of the stock unit, but I am having some issues with it. My changer works in the trunk, but the AM/FM and tape deck do not work most of the time. I am not sure how to fix this without getting a hole new unit, and don't really want to do the single din aftermarket look.
When you view the standard widescreen unit from the front, the cassette housing at the rear is offeset to the left on left hand drive cars, and to the right on right hand drive cars. This difference means that the R/H drive version will not fit L/H drive cars, because the cassette housing fouls the aircon duct behind it. It follows that any other unit that has part of its structure in this area will not fit either...
