I am in need of a cd player and after looking through like 10 pages of threads have learned that it is possible to put in aftermarket cd player. I am a complete novice and want to know how hard it really is.

1. I am buying from crutchfield/online but do not know how hard it will be to install, I have never done anything as far as car stereo is concerned but am pretty capable with other electronics.

2. I bought the Clarion DXZ645MP does anyone have any experience with it?



Thanks,

jshearer

Easy as pie, I've been around +12Volt audio for a while, and consider the e36 one of the easiest HU installs out there.

Find a thread with a comment from "El Presidente", there is a link in his signature with which to click. Or PM me.

Thanks, I will look for one. I also saw thta crutchfield is supposed to give me a reference guide on how to do it. I just got a little worried about it since I have talked to a bunch of install people and the bmw dealer people and they all said it was not possible and some talked about complete rewires and such. No one ever said that there was an adapter to make it easy.

I've been dealing with Crutchfield since 1980, and they are an awesome resource. However, I've noticed since buying my E39 that Crutchfield is a little short on info regarding BMWs, at least the E39's. So if they seem a little lame, don't write them off totally, Crutchfield is normally very knowledgable on other car brands.
