hi, recently got a new radio for my 07 316, it's not a standard radio but an aftermarket single din with built in pop out screen. I'm trying to find some help on its installation because both the wiring and mounting brackets ar ré different but also need's a faceplate.

Does anyone have any experience on changing out the standard radio to a single din aftermarket radio?

I changed the radio/CD unit in my Z3 for a Radio/MiniDisc without any problems.  I bought a BMW/DIN connector harness and an 'escutchion' (a plastic frame) from a local ICE specialist, the actual change process being a ten minute job. 

It is odd how BMW do not use the standard DIN connector, which is common to all car radios etc apart from the BMW types.  I think the parts cost me under £10, but that was a long time ago!
A Z3 is not just for Christmas - it's for life!
