No, not at all. SOmeone asked the same question in the audio forums, and I responded with the same.

Some cars need a higher or lower voltage to feed the oem amp's input, the BMW amp works pretty well with most aftermarket head unit's powered outputs. You'll be fine.

I bought it since crutchfield told me i needed it, and when i was looking around multiple places for install told me i needed it to. I installed myself and it followed the diagram for splicing the wires. It works fine and sounds fine. I never tried it without, so I don't really know if you need it or not. I thought that it may be dependant on a certain year and model but don't really know.
