Hey how things,

New member....only just found the site!!!

Got a few problems I know lots of you can help with (I hope)

Just got a '00 325 se and looking to install my pioneer head unit.

Now here's the problem(S)

Obviously gonna need the facia adp and wiring loom from autoleads, but will this allow me to use the standard multi changer and the controls on the steering wheel. Or am I going to need to by extra leads etc??

I think im gonna need an adapter for the multi changer and possibly an extra for the multi function wheel.

If some1 out there could help with what leads and where from etc I would be really appreciative

Cheers Peeps

Boyo

when i had my 00 astra that had steering wheel controls and when my xplod unit was fitted the bloke had to get a extra lead for the steering wheel

also if your pioneer hasnt got the facility to take a multi changer then you might have to get a different one not all head uniots have this on them someone else might know different with the bmw

auto leads do all you need mate good luck

also welcome to the club

Halfords.....You mean the guys that told me that there is no lead for the cd changer to work with the head unit and you cant get a lead for the multi function wheel to work with it either!!!!

They really know there stuff!!!!!!
