With dsp you have subwoofers and amplifier in the trunk, if you can hook it up you will probably be fine, you just wont have the preset dsp sound choices, Concert Hall etc.. http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=488158
I find it a bit strange why you did not buy a DSP unit like you had....
