i searched the forums and didnt find any DIY full sound system. from aftermarket h/u..to speakers, to amps to subs and even down to the detail what wiring to use...someone should write a DIY if they have done a self install, or leave this thread cuz i will write one as soon as i do it...

I went to go get a price on install from a car place, and they told me that I would have to replace all of the speakers when i replace the HU because of the way BMW's are set up. and another thing about how bmw's are set up , they said in order for me to get an after market alarm, they would have to re=wire the entire car and all the labor would cost me an ass load of money.. oh well looks like i;ll just be getting rims instead.

Check this out....http://www.geocities.com/e36rulz/DIY.html
Has whatever you need, just scroll down to electronics.
Also, to install a new HU, you could just switch to 4 channels and get new fronts and run it off your HU. Getting my sub tomorrow and its gonna sound killer.
