Are you sure you're at the right forum? How did you get the double-din 2001 E46 series business radio to fit in the single Din E34 opening? In any event, the 2001s all use an I-bus for the connection to the changer (I-bus) while the e-34s were wired for a non-I-bus.

Sounds like you have your work cut out for you.


a radio from a 2001 3 series (BMW Business). No problems there. I used all of the old connections from the original bmw radio to make the fit with no problems whatsoever.

Now I want to add a changer and I still have the 14 pin connector in the trunk which is hooked up to the new radio. Can this connection be used or do I need a new connection from the radio? Also, can I use it with an adaptor? The whole idea with installing the new radio is that i want to use the newer changers.
