Stock e92 stereo unit upgrade?

Hello!

I've been thinking about getting an aftermarket unit instead of our stock lame system...such as AUX/USB ports and just overall more elaborate than the stock controls.

Does anyone know where I could go to do this?

Mine looks like this:



or is it even possible?

thanks!
Jonathan

Van Cours in Puyallup, I keep factory dash set ups but always replace factory amps and speakers plus some subs.

The owners are family friends so I can help you out a little on labor $$$.

I'd recommend a Bluetooth adapter plugging into you're AUX in the glovebox to run Bluetooth streaming from you're phone. Or if you go head unit you can't go wrong with an iPad mini as a HU

Just tell them the Indian kid with the Benz's haha

But Tbh my cousin works at best buy and their installing a sub in my e90 for $140. Just saying it's far cheaper than going the custom route and it's warranted for 12 months at any best buy shop...instead of costing around $1200 for a full install of a kicker system I'm paying $450 with taxes labor and subs and amps.

haha your name is so relevant.

the stereo came back alive several days after this and I've given up on the project due to the lack of options to keep it a clean look.
