    After researching several options for head unit I went with the VDO. It's the closest unit that looks era specific besides the CD33 or CD43. Plus you get bluetooth, usb and aux without any modifications.
    BMW crimps and shrink tubes were used.



    Nice choice!


    I have the same deck in my e30.
    Nothing is cooler than having the modern tech of Bluetooth in a car built decades before it was invented!


    For connectors, I used these:

    Best darn thing I ever purchased!
    No more worrying if you accidentally connected the wrong speaker wiring!
    If you hake a mistake, simply unscrew the tap and re-connect with the right one. Wires are tight and won't come undone easily :D
    If it's got tits or tires, it's gonna cost ya!

        Nice choice with the VDO. I like that unit a lot.

        Do you happen to have part #s for the fog light grommets?

            Replaced the vehicle speed sensor. Had a whining noise from the diff so it was replaced with a 2.93 lsd, z3m cover and fluids. Also replaced the pigtail connector and wires.

                          Thanks. There are multiple part numbers depending on the gauge/thickness of wires you're using. It's in group 61 or 62 if I remember correctly

                            lol! Actually the AMG was comparable to an e30 s50. If you see my early posts I built an e30 s52. The AMG had a 3.6 with 3.25 lsd and manual trans. Had around 290hp and boogied while looking intimidating like a bulldog. :)

                            Porsche 964 was a c4 and was comparable to an e36 m3

                            NSX was still the fastest of all. custom tune, headers, cat delete, full exhaust and short shift. Thing revved up to 8k

                            The e30 S50 is having a huge upgrade soon which WILL be fastest of the group! Will post soon once I get things in order.

                              Well an easy clutch job turned into a full build now lmao! Was in the process of removing the tranny and told myself to do the oil pan which turned into dropping the motor.
