Hi guys. I just got a 87 325i Touring. I got it for 400 bucks, the conditon of the car wasn't bad at all, I just expend 300 bucks to have the car fully running: oil pan gasket, valve covert gasket, valve adjustment, a tuneup, flushes of all the fluids, replacement of some lights in the dashbord and turn signals, and a new stereo system, off course it took me almost a week to do it all the work and I almost got it.
I installed a Sony cdx-gt710 head unit, 5 1/4 polk audio componets in the front and back, and a 400 rms jvc sub with a 500 rms jbl amp. The stereo works fine when is on FM/AM, but when I change it to CD or AUX option only the sub works, all the speakers shut down, and i don't know why!!!
After going crazy trying to fixed it, I went to AllData (Tech. program) and there is a service bulletin that talks about the original stereo is a two way (Left and Right) and that the newer stereos or with CD option are four way (front, back, left, and right), and if installing a BMW four way stereo it needs a special harnes that only fits BMW stereos that i dont have. Hear it comes my question.
Somebody knows a better solution than to run new wires from the speakers to a aftermarket amp and to eliminated the factory amp and fender option????:werd
Some hack installed the stereo in my '87 before I bought it, and after the power running through the shielding on the antennae lead tried to burn me to the ground one morning. I simply had no choice but to start over (guess that'll teach me to trust someone else's wiring) Your best bet is to disconnect the factory stuff PROPERLY insulate the wire ends and just build your own harness. It harder and takes a bit longer but everything will work as desired including the blue tooth if you have that option. I do and it ROCKS, 22 year old car with modern wireless connectivity woo hoo.
Thanks B.E. I totally agree with u. I was thinking to get a DVD-GPS head unit, but I also have my hands in other profect a 74 z28 Camaro and i'm trying ti have the z28 running before racing season is open.. lol....
