yea, i agree there, definitly strong cars! Well you see my head unit is crap. Its a kenwood CD player with only one preout, meaninhg if i was to install this then I would not be able to run an anp + cd changer without a splitter. However idont want to use a splitter because the supply voltage to the only pre out pair is 2V. Meaning with a splitter in place the amp would only be supplied with 1V. Hence, i would have to set the gain on the amplifier to 1 (to ensure best quality) otherwise there would be a lot of distortion if i set it higher. So..to cut a long story short I need a new head unit. I would like one that has an ipod interface kit like the alpine HU but its just too expensive for me at the minute.
As for the fitting, do you know what BMW would charge? I dont want everything wiring up as I can easily do that myself
I just want the stereo fitting (if i was to get a new 1) and the wires for the amplifier running through the car (ie power, earth , RCA & remote).
