DAB retrofit kit from BMW.

Hi guys,

I've recently purchased a BMW retrofit kit to enable DAB into my Wagon 2003 330d Sport Touring. BMW part number 65122336498. Has anyone used/fitted it on here?

Like this?
I didn't realize the car required upgrading to allow such a stylish mode of entry.

It was a joke. DAB means something else entirely over here.
We don't have DAB. And geo thought you were talking about the tv tuner, thus the link to my thread.
I'm the only active person who has done a retrofit on this side of the pond in a touring.
It wouldn't be much different than a sedan though, except maybe mounting location.

No, we don't have DAB in the US. Geo thought you were talking about TV, not digital radio.
That's one of the varios retrofits I did.

I know intravee could allow you to use an alpine dab tuner.

Do you have Navsystem or a standard radio?
The digital tv conversion (ptv, etc) includes DAB.

Standard radio only would also in the future look to install a Harmon Kardon set up

Harmon is speakers with lower impedance and a booster amp. Unless you buy the lot cheap, you are better off with bsw or rainbows, or just getting something aftermarket and good sounding with high sensitivity.

Does the DAB kit fit with the BMW business head unit? And how do you access it? Is it via the aux input?

Ah thanks, another question, I know there is a remote but how do you know what you're tuned in to? Does the display change from AUX to show the radio station?
