replacing the stock M3 radio/casette (archive)

I recently purchased a Blaupunkt Toronto CD receiver for my M3. After a talk with a Crutchfield rep, I ended up buying two adapters to connect the BMW OEM connectors to the receiver (requires minimal soldering) and a receiver interface "to connect the new receiver to the car's wiring system at the proper levels." (his words) I'm not exactly sure what he meant by this so I would like to know if anyone else has replaced their factory stereo with an aftermarket unit and has used a device like this. The unit is about 2"l x 2"w x 1/2"h and is made by Soundgate. The atapter and interface were relatively inexpensive and I can return the receiver interface if need be.

I'd appreciate advice anyone can offer.

Thanks and take care.
