New Stereo Upgrade!!

I'm gonna pull the trigger and start the upgrade on BMW stereo system!

This isn't a FULL upgrade, but a partial upgrade. Here's a sneak peak!





UPDATE 4/28

Finally got the system in. Everything went smooth except for taking out the climate control. Just like I predicted it was a BIATCH to take off. Spent almost an hour taking the damn thing out, I was close to calling it quits. Then I told myself "FUCK IT" I'll pry it out with brute force! To my surprise it, it finally budged and eventually came off.

Here are some quick pictures, sorry for the bad quality (ran out of sun light).

Spec. of the NEW system:
PIONEER AVIC-Z130BT
EARTHQUAKE SWS-8 4 ohm: Wired parallel to 2ohm
ALPINE MONO MRP M-500 Amplifier
MONSTER CABLES 650 watt AMP KIT
METRA DASH KIT
METRA HARNESSES

soon to be: FOCAL K2 powered by ALPINE F-250


Front looks great! Better than I expected.


Plays music video from my SD card. Thanks to you I bypassed the safety feature that prohibits it to play while driving.


This little part the the dash kit sticks out. Kinda bothers me, but doesn't drive me crazy. The bottom two screws does not align with the stock screws, so be prepare to drill into your dash.


Still dont know what to do with the amp. Attach it to the seat or place them under the trunk.



I'm only 95% done, ran out of time today because the GF came home.
