They will work. I used them last week for the front struts replacement. You just have to find the best spot on the coil to attach them.

E46 stereo dilemma

It's not the same bezel. This is an aftermarket one and the head unit is recessed. It doesn't look presentable.

Thanks for clarifying. I was kind of skeptical about them. That's why I was only considering the Hotchkis sway bar kit.

I don't think that the HK. amp will work properly with an aftermarket radio. That amp requires balanced differential inputs which your pioneer radio can't provide.

You don't need the LOC since you are replacing the head unit. Just run the RCA cables to the 5 channel amp from the head unit.

Not being able to use 1.2 BAR cap is a huge downside of the aluminum tank. I hope it will be available at some point of time.

The best bet is to call Crutchfield or similar online store and ask them for a specific harness. You'll also need a harness for the steering wheel controls.

If you have the 5 channel amp you should use it. Head units have a very limited power.
The best bet is to replace everything: the speakers, the amp and the head unit.

You can put the sunglasses tray where the hvac controls are right now. Or just a regular tray.
Having an aftermarket amp gives you more choices of the aftermarket speakers.
