I'm replacing the HU in my wife's 1998 323i convertible. What is need to do this, are there any instructions online? Also can I just remove the head unit or do I have to replace everything (speaker) like in my Cobra w/the mach 460 system.
She has 10 speakers that I know of. The HU has a tape player with CD changer in the trunk. Im not sure if the factory amp will work with aftermarket HU. Im putting in a Clarion DXZ645MP the wife picked this so the lights would match. I also plan to replace all the speakers and add amps for Good sound @ high levels.
Thanks for the help. John

I got the HU hooked up, it powers up but No sound! Does the stock system run off an amp that only work with the stock HU? The stock HU is an Alpine if that helps.
thanks again, John
