BMW 325ci : Wiring diagrams needed for the HK system


I have a BMW 325ci 2005 and I'm planning to replace the stock sound system with the Harman Kardon system. I need the wiring diagram in order to fit the new HK amp and sub. Thx.

Any other advice before I undertake this adventure ?

Just buy an aftermarket system. Like JL Audio or something. It will sound better.

Get or make a rewire harness, new amp 3/5/7 channel, new head unit, pre made subwoofer box, rear deck mids and front door components
heck on a budget ! get a decent 3 channel head/ 50 watts and front components with rear coaxials across/under the deck / bypass the cheap pair 4x6 fake subwoofer subamp setup
then rewire add on later a subwoofer box

oem audio units blow ! especially $1500 new car markups HK, Bose....

if really cash strapped ! use your flash player or ipod with good earbuds !

Thank you guys for the info.

I know most of you prefere aftermarket speakers and stuff, but I've heard how the HK system sounds like and I know it fits my needs ! Since I found one for a pretty decent price, I'll stick with it.

Thank you for the wiring diagrams !
