My Ride: 325CI coupe
help needed choosing a bluetooth stereo for my 2004 325CI coupe

Hi guys,

I've been looking at eBay lately for an E46 stereo head unit and I don't know what I should be getting. Most importantly I want to make sure that it WORKS out of the box without the need of some intense re-wiring.

I am mainly interested in playing tunes from my spotify via my phone so bluetooth capability should suffice. If there are more features like GPS, video etc then even better. I do like how the 2din units look like. I was looking at Eonon7 and some others but I have no idea if these would work. There are few nicer ones for over USD$400 but I am assuming there are cheaper options that work as well.

At the moment I have the stock 1din cd/am/fm which is fine for CD's and radio but no bluetooth.

Can someone recommend something that works well for this car?

Thanks a million!

Open this page: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/index.php

Scroll down to the BAVSOUND Mobile Electronics Forum

Read both the READ ME threads at the top of the list. You need to figure how how much wiring, double din vs. single din you want to do.

Then post a question there once you've educated yourself a little. Then you can you the SEARCH feature on the site. Your question has been asked and discussed multiple times, lots of information available.
