No! The original one will say BMW on it!
The good thing is that the wiring has already been run for an after market radio, so insalling the new one will be easy.

There is probably a wiring diagram on top of the stereo.
If not then you are going to have to just do a hit and miss kind of thing.
Maybe you can do a search on that radio and find the diagram that way!
If not, give me the model number and I will see if I can find it!
Let me know if you need a hand!

ground = brown, consant power = red/green, ignition/"on" = purple... you should be able to figure out the speaker wires, and the power antenna wire is the kind of white/beige colored one sitting by itself all the way to the left... that should be it I think
