Two questions about 5 series (E39)
Hi everyone, i would like to ask you a couple of questions about the 5 series E39. First of all my car is a BMW 520i E39, built September 1998 (Euro spec). My questions are the following.
Did BMW produced a factory radio-cd mp3 for this car? The local dealer in my country says that there is no radio-cd with mp3 capabilities. I know that this might be different in other regions, it depends of course what the byuer wants. I have installed a 1-din Alpine, very cool, but does not have the OEM look. I used to have BMW radio-cassete.
The second question is about car safety. Is there any good system to prevent any thief? I've heard that MID (which i don't have in my car, but it can be installed can't it?) has a "CODE" mode in which the car starts on only if you type a 4-digit password. Is it a nice system, or you suggest an after market alarm system? My car has already the factory alarm system.
I am looking forward for your answers-suggestions
