I wanted to put in a new receiver, one that plays mp3 cd's into my 2004 BMW 330i. I know that i'll need to get a Mounting Kit for the new receiver. The question I have regards what kind of receiver I can put in. When I e-mailed Crutchfield, they said that I couldn't use fold-down or detachable face receivers. I was looking to buy the Sony CDX-M8800 which is a fold down face. Now after reading the reply from Crutchfield, i'm unsure if I can get it. Is this true?
| Hello, |
Thanks for shopping the Crutchfield web site.
In answer to your question about replacing your receiver, unfortunately, due to restrictions in your vehicle's dash, if you use a fold-down face or detachable face receiver, you will not be able to fold down or detach the face so. The Sony CDX-M8800 is, therefore, not recommended. Sorry I don't have better news for you there.*
The weird thing is, I go through their car model selector thing. I choose 2004 --> BMW --> 330i --> Without Navigation .. and they list all these fold-down and detachable face receivers. What's going on?
