Hello,

I have a 95 325is and I just changed my head unit from the factory bmw KE-93zbm (82 11 1 468 290 version 2) to a more recent alpine C43 US DIN ... so far no problems, until i tried to use my cd changer (model number TR1003 82 11 1 468 014) ... it seems that the head unit doesn't recognised it so i decided to look for a new cd changer but than i realised that the plug in the trunk is a round 14 pin connector ghead so i have no idea what cd changer i should look for ... or if i would need to replace the factory prewired plug in the trunk ...

Does anyone know what i should do ... where can i find a compatible cd changer ... a compatible plug or an adaptor ...

PLEASE HELP ME ...

i did not recognize because you have a newer generation off head unit and the cd changer is the old one..

to fix this, youll need a compatible cd changer for that unit,, i dont know wich one is, but look on the internet you should be able to find., then just replace the wire that goes form the readio to the trunk,, it simply consitst of takin the lower plastic trim, the one ofver the pedals us spec, then running a new wire from dash to the trunk.. not a big deal,, and when you get to the rear seats, if your car does not have folding seats, then just pull out the rear seat cushion and then youll be able to see where do the wires enter the trunk..

you will also find the wire at ebay or dealer.

and is not a hard to do job.

keep us posted

to run the wire is not a big thing as long as you have the patience to pull up some trim pieces and the carpet, but is not a hassle.

o the other thing for you to keep in mind is that 95 cars have a different power plug for the cd changer you got..
in order to make it work, go to the link below, he has a whole DIY on cd converstion and how to do it. hope it helps..
