I keep reading that adapters are available for I-bus but not non I-bus stereos. What exactly is the difference and why would it be different for some e46's.

Does it have to do with Upgraded HK systems versus stock or is there more to it? I figure since folks keep saying that you need to know whether you have I-bus or not, that this is not connected with whether or not you bought the HK upgrade.

Also, has anyone actually successfully tried the oem changers? What adapter did you use? I have an alpine changer from my acura that I would love to be able to use in my 323.

Thanks a bunch.


: yes there is one available. check out this site

: : Anyone know if there are adapters available to use retail alpine CD changers with the factory prewirwing? My friendly local stereo shop believes there is one available and is trying to find one. Please let me know if anyone knows of any. I will also let everyone know if my stereo shop is successful in finding one.
