2002 330ci AFTERMARKET CD PLAYER AND SUBWOOFERS HELP

Can someone direct me to a do-it yourself listing for putting in a aftermarket cd player (Kenwood) and subwoofers to by-pass factory Harmon Kardon. I can not find the correct links for the diy anywhere!

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Car Audio place wants my arm and three toes to do this.......

This is not an easy task, I have a 328 im not sure if its different, but you are going to spend hours in the dash. I would recommend taking it somewhere, I only paid 60.00 and by passed all the crap.

As far as radio installs in BMW's go yours is pretty straight foward. You need to remove the woodgrain trim from the dash starting at the passenger side. This part is just pressure clipped in. Once that is off ( 2 pieces ) you need to remove the two Phillips screws that hold the radio in.

The new radio cage will mount right into the dash and the the kit will go over the radio and screw in. You will need to wire and mount the radio before you screw in the dash kit. That is the tricky part. It' tight but you can deffinatly do it. There are parts to retain the steering wheel controls and a wire haness and antenna adapter you will need ( the steering wheel controls are optional and as I recall you need to run the wire to the steering column. ) if you get stuck or need help don't hesitate to ask

Good luck

It helps to read the whole question.

The amp and sub you are using will wire direct to the new radio.
