If my searching is correct (99 323i question)

The I will need a 02-05 business class head unit, antenna adapter, and DICE unit to hook up an ipod in my car correct? There is not way to wire one into the stock head unit in a 99 323?
the car does have the harmon-kardon system
Also, where can I get rear door speaker grills? I'm missing one and the others are pushed in and broken

US or USA spec ipod connector will work! I did it on my car! With OEM business radio. It connects to the cd changer. As for the speaker grills check out realoem.com

what year was your radio? I have a 99, I don't think you can adapt an ipod to it

It will work. Instead of connecting to the radio it connects to the cd changer. My radio is 99 so it should work with your radio. Plus it gives you full control of the ipod as oppose to the other systems out there that only let you have 6 set playlist.

Here's the link to the site. www.usaspec.com

The DICE will connect to your current radio, no need for the upgrade. This is the kit you need:

DICE - SILVERLINE iPod Integration Kit for 3 Series/M3 99-06 (Trunk Interface)
http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...oducts_id=1621

The DICE iPod Kit will integrate perfectly with your BMW and offer steering wheel control as well as ID3 text and charging of your iPod. Full CD Quality can be expected after installation. There's even an integrated AUX port for other devices.

New features of DICE SILVERLINE iPod Integration kit include:

- Direct integrated connection, without the need for FM transmitters or cassette adapters
- Full Text Display on your factory radio or Navigation screen
- Full control of your iPod via the radio buttons while in play
- Browse by Individual Song
- Browse by Individual Playlist
- Browse by Individual Albums
- Source Selector w/ Integrated AUX input
- Album Selection
- Full charging mode for iPods through included dock connector

The kit will come with everything needed w/ the docking cable. The iPod can be safely stored away in the glove compartment for 100% stealth installation and accessed completely from the steering wheel controls. The DICE comes with a 15-foot cable length to reach anywhere in the vehicle you like. We have tutorials at the following link:

kick ass, I'll be contacting you tomorrow.
On another note, anyone know where I can get a replacement volume knob from? Mine is pretty worn looking.
