So i have a 1998 BMW 3 Series 328i. (i absolutely love it!)
now first please be away i did spend 2 hours last night searching this forum for my answer and im still empty handed so any help will due!
1. I want to put my brand new pioneer deck into the car, i h ave the old one out, easiest deck removal in my life to be honest, and im ready to put the new one in, heres my issue. i know i can get a wiring harness to just clip into the old one, so that i dont have to take the factory one off; this is what i found

Allows installation of an aftermarket radio using the existing factory wiring and connectors. No cutting of factory wiring is needed.
i already bought the first one (lets hope it was the right one lol) but if im wrong let me know ill buy the 2nd, only 1$ on ebay lol.
and now my 2nd question,
My car has stickers all over the window, and they say, This car is protected by a security system, Is it really? and if so, how do i set it off, i would like to know because the factory deck has a red blinking light, which i would amuse is some type of security feature, but i dont want to lose it if i swap the deck out.
Also, i plan on taking pictures of this install because after searching the site, i haven't found much at all for this specific car, so ill try to help out anyone in the future who wants to do this, ill take as many pics as passable. so look out for that
thanks in advance for all the help.
