My Ride: 2000 BMW 323i
Upgrading Blaupunkt pre-2002 stereo to newer Alpine stereo


I have a 2000 BMW 323i. (I think it falls under the blanket term e46). I have a pre 2002 Blaupunkt radio that I'm trying to upgrade a new Alpine radio (P/N 65 12-6 961 215).

The problem I have run into is that they do not have the same antenna connections. Pic:

Old unit to the left, new unit to the right. The Blaupunkt unit has two antenna connections, while the new Alpine has one antenna connector.

What do I need to connect this new Alpine unit?

Search Bimmer Forums. This is a common issue when updating the head unit. There's an adapter that fixes your issue.
