1999 318i E46 stereo question and DIY

Hey all,

Im an Aussie and i own a 1999 model e46 318i.

Its got a single din old radio cassette player and the climate control panel is directly underneath it. (cd stacker in the boot) all genuine.

I want to fit a double din sat nav mp3 big screen stereo system into the area and i was wondering if it is at all possible for the climate control to be relocated to the sunglass box underneath it?

thanks in advance.

Hi,
Yeah you can get a Relocation panel from the dealers iirc,if your thinking on getting an aftermarket type double din head unit (Kenwood,Pioneer)etc i think you may have to cut into the heater box and then reseal it to get things to clear but I'm unsure,someone will tell you for sure,or there's an alternative unit by Dynavin which looks O.E but isn't and is direct fit there's plenty of info on here about Dynavin..hope that helps some.

Thanks for that Shannon, I looked in the Aussie section, and I got in contact with Jason which he was very helpful..

Cheers
