The radio unit can be put anywhere, trunk, inside the dash, etc... Then instead of clipping in the faceplate, you solder in wires and remotely mount the much thinner faceplate anywhere you want. Ceiling, center console, door, etc... Allows you to put it someplace more concealed and possibly easier to access. Maybe if you were clever, even reuse the faceplate of an OE unit.

Ah, that's what I thought you might have meant. I've seen that done before and it's pretty nifty.

Ballin' on a budget, Indian-style.

Although Kalim is still the exception. Somehow, he still gets all the guys and none of the girls, not even the really dark fob ones.

Beater M3 was more effective, strangely enough.

I'm not really sure where I could put the face plate that would look any better, because then it leaves a big empty place in the middle of my upper center console, which would probably look equally as bad.

Meh, aftermarket radios don't stand out nearly as bad in the 190E as they do in the E46 with the built in radio.

Swapping an M3 motor into a 325i sedan. He's totally doing it wrong to get girls. I bet a 323ci with aftermarket wheels and a stick shift would get him more. Hmm... by that reasoning kyle should be getting tons.

Your idea of using the OE faceplate is common in cases where people don't want to ruin a perfectly restored interior with a modern unit. I believe Mechatronik does this as well.

And yet there he sits, like a dirty, unloved CL500 in a warehouse.

But it's got a CL600 badge to attract people who like bigger numbers.
