All,

Thanks for the responses. I won't break out the gauge to confirm but just order a fuel pump and filter. Let you know more after I get these and installed.

Thanks again,

Read up on this site (http://www.bimmernav.com/bmw_e46_bluetooth_retrofit.html). Or go aftermarket like dpgrand suggest with Parrot. I've used both and they're great.

My recommendation:
Aftermarket HU -> aftermarket amp - run RCA patch cables.
OEM HU -> aftermarket amp - either LOC or if amp is balance line capable, straight to amp.

My guess is that the problem is in the OEM amp. Maybe a bad solder joint on the PCB effecting the front tweeter amp or crossovers.

I consider Crutchfield quite conservative in their DIY. If they have instructions to do the install, it is quite simple, IMO. I'm a desk jockey and I do my own shade tree installs.

:facepalm::tsk::tsk::tsk:

If your car is from the US, it likely has an amp. If the remote on turns off when you switch to CD or AUX then this turns the amp off.

Use the amp rem on.
