:driving I got an Alpine CHAS-634 along with its adapters and stuff to make it fit to my 330Ci (Model year 2003, W/Business CD,W/Hifi Harman Kardon, W/o DSP ). I removed the cover on the left side of the trunk and surprise!!! No prewiring :(. I thought all cars came with Cd changer prep.
I also am after the wiring loom for this.
I wish to fit the API CHAS 634 which is the mp3 version of the standard bmw auto changer
HOWEVER theres no wiring, just a space above the sat nav
I got quoted for 2 wires (if needed, must check first) £7 each one.
all service department would say was let us have it in and we will investigate and charge you only for the time we spend looking for the wiring, of course we will fit for you.
Strangely (not) they can't fit just the 2 wires as in their words "how can we test that the work has been carried out correctly"
changer is £185 (shopping around)
the suggest around 500
what was concerning me was as it does not say anything such as business cd etc on head unit cos it's sat nav then fitting such a lead might frig up something.
I need I think to do the following (would prefer input back please)
1. If the cabling is not there then
buy the 2 leads and radio
then get them fitted together professionally but NOT by bmw
advice please guys.
