DIY head unit replacement for E36 323

I'm looking at getting a head unit for my car as it only came with a factory cassette player, but I'd want to try and do the install myself.

I'm not looking for a massive stereo system so I'm just going for a head unit replacement.

Has anyone done this themselves before and has tips etc?
Diagrams?

I want to know if it's something I could pull off or if I'd need help!

Its not too bad. Get yourself a wiring harness from a local audio shop (not Best Buy/Circuit City) but from a car audio shop. It'll be the best 15 bucks you've spent on your car. There are two little doors on each edge of the radio that open to reveal two small 5-sided screws. There is a key you can buy that is 5-sided to fit perfectly but not really needed. A 2.5mm allen wrench will fit, just be careful and hold pressure inward as they are brass and will strip easily. Just loosen them and the radio will just slide out.

Hope that helps...
