I would have thought it would come with at least a cd player. I know some of these have the upgraded sound with the 6 disc changer in the trunk. Since this does not have it, are the wires still wired to the trunk to put one in? Thanks

yes, all e36s are prewired for security system and cd changer.

you can find all the wires on the passenger side of the car by peeling back the carpet on the side of the trunk.

Probably not a good idea. Check out a company called Blitzsafe. They make feakin adaptors for everything. However, I kind of doubt they make an adaptor to go from an oem cd changer din plug to a set of RCA's or better yet an 1/8 inch audio jack. And even if they did (highly doubtful). You would have to run a cable from there all the way to your dash so you could control it.

bottom line oem decks suck, yank it and go aftermarket

blitzsafe does have one for e39 that gives you RCA ins as well as changer hookup for a modern changer so they may have it for e36s HUs/changers... but quality would suffer after a run like that would as stated above.

Actually, most aftteramarket HU's have RCA outputs, not inputs (not the same thing). There are several dex that do have aux ins, but not all. :P
