    1990 e34 535i after market headunit install questions

    Hey I'm trying to install an an aftermarket headunit into my dads 91 535i so he can use Bluetooth to play his music. I figured it would be pretty similar to my 84 325e. But the wring it very different and I don't quite understand how to wire it up. I looked at adapter plugs and other threads on the Internet but they don't look like they will work? If anyone can help I would appreciate it. This is what I'm dealing with.


    Thanks

    Here's my old thread from when I installed my head unit:

    I forget where I found the diagram that I mentioned towards the end of that thread, but the pics at the very bottom of this page should be a good start:

I kind of guessed on the stereo imputs as to which was which. But if anyone sees anything that i have incorrectly wired please let me know

            If the stock Amp is still in pace in the car you will want to be sure you are using the blue antenna signal wire to power up the Amp.
