Radio killed my car!
If you are thinking about doing an aftermarket radio or other electronic upgrade in you BMW, (because you have been influenced by one of those trick car shows), think again. (Oh, they can make it look so simple and easy). Let’s face it, your later model BMW already has some stellar audio. Over the past year especially, we have seen some major damage that is the direct result of an attempt to, (shall we say), customize the audio. Sure, it can be done correctly, but unfortunately, we usually see these problems after it’s too late. “Too late”, is when the car is towed in and a new radio system is lying in the front seat of the car, (the old one is in the back), wires are dangling, and multiple fault codes are a happenin’…(not pretty).
Please. Don’t jeopardize your wiring harness or other electrical components by trying to add some aftermarket stuff yourself, or even worse, going to the cheapest place in the world. Your BMW audio and electrical system, well, this is sacred territory. Don’t try this at home.
