looks like the aftermath of an audio project from a previous owner.


...your best best is just to rip out the trunk lining and try to trace the wires. Is your head unit stock or aftermarket?

The 4th picture with 2 plugs, those are for factory cd changers. Every e46 is pre-wired for that even if you don't have the cd-changer. So don't worry about those two.

Yes it is, but you will have to buy the bracket for it and also the trunk liner with the door for the same. I dont think its worth it.
Just buy a head unit from 03+ car and do an aux in mod. Even better try to get one from 05, that will give you mp3 capability too.

With aux in your mp3 player/phone will be your cd changer without having to open the trunk to change the CDs.

Big blue one goes to amp.
There should be 2 connectors connecting to the amp.
One is from HU to Amp
The other one is from Amp to speakers.
