Hi all just to give an update on my previous problem. I have recently replaced all fuses and now my stereo works. thanx all for wiring help i have spread the word through other BMW owners about my success from the help i had here. all i gotta do now is figure out where to get an arial bit to wire that up. think im gonna put it in to get that done cause aparentley th wire is like really thin and u could miss it real easy. so it only costs like $20 to get it done so i dont mind that.but i cant thank u guys enough u saved me like $100.
