rgzimmer is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
Has anyone installed a CD changer in a 325 vert or know of any DIY links? All I have been able to find are DIY's for sedans/coupes. My vert has a different trunk setup from what I've seen in the other guides.

2004 325CiC Convertible; Silver Gray Paint, Gray Leather, Black Top, Sport Package, Premium Package, Xenons, heated seats, but too cheap to buy the nav...

The wires are there, but the mounting is different. The Nav unit goes onto a different bracket in a different location. In the hard tops, the Nav sits in the same bracket as the changer. I could go to a dealer and find the info, but I was hoping to order the parts online cheaper.

bavauto carries the mounting brackets for all the e36 makes, so I would assume they would for the e46. Very good customer service. If you have a problem they can usually talk you through the entire installation in the car.
