I got everything except the wire that powers the antenna up & down. One of the after market Alpines in the back use blue, and those were the only blue wires that came out the dash. I'm not overly concerned with it, due to listening to CD's 95% of the time anyway. Is it going to cause an electrical fire to not have it wired in?
You want C233 (a single 20-gauge wire with white insulation to hook the power antenna lead from the stereo unit to. Looking at the E30 radio schematic, you'd have the correct wire if a continuity test from the white wire in the trunk's power antenna connector (C219) succeeded with the C233 wire.
If you had access to a tone generator (aka fox and hound), you could put a tone on the white wire (c219) in the trunk and then find the wire with the loudest tone behind the dash. Just make sure the radio is powered off if you try this approach.
