It will work fine but depending on which AVIC radio you have, determining the POWER RATING of that specific unit and how high you crank your music it can cut that arranged marriage short if you catch my drift.
when I was doing my Install, of my AVIC Z2 unit in my E46 M3 along with the bluetooth, ipod, XM Nav traffic and steering wheel adaptors all installed without upgrading the speakers and connecting the external aftermarket AMPS (JL A1800 & A6450) for almost 3weeks due to other higher priorities. it worked fine but i was careful not to play it too hard cause i knew the OEM Harmon Kardon speakers could NOT handle the power from the AVIC- Z2 through the factory amp.
hope that helped
