You, sir, are the absolute end all and be all of awesome tonight. I was just having the same factory amplifier problem that was being discussed in another thread.(The problem where all the lights and numbers on the head unit work and the CD spins, but you don't hear any sound) Your directions on how to rewire the harness to sidestep the little issue were right on.
I sit in my office all day trying to make up places to go drive it to! haha
I'm sitting at home now pissed that I don't have anywhere to go. More pissed cause it's rush hour and I couldn't get there anyway!
By the way....once the system was all hooked up I was shocked how well it sounded. It's truly a great system, and aside from the head unit, it's all OEM. The built in amp is one hell of a good idea. Those wacky German carmakers are allright!
Oh just in case anyone wondered....
Driving an M3 while playing Low Rider.....probably the single coolest feeling ever. hahaha
