High End Performance: 

You will probably see a lot of overseas sellers selling this type of unit, so what makes ours better? Our units are built with the very best components. We use a Silicon Labs Si4745 premium radio receiver for quality radio reception, a DSP processor for ultimate sound, a SANYO 860C DVD/CD driver with a SUNPLUS 8202 VGQ decoder and a Samsung 800x480 WVGA Advanced 4-Line Digital Touch Screen. The unit is also made up of quality components from Sony, Hitachi, Panasonic and SiRF.

Steering Wheel Remote Buttons

If your vehicle is equipped with control buttons on the steering wheel, you can use them with the head unit as well. The head unit is fully connected to the vehicle electronics and accepts all steering controls such as volume control, telephone  and audio mute. This is yet another feature that contributes to comfort and driving safety in your vehicle.

This custom fit head unit is designed to be a direct fit after-market replacement head unit for the original fitted head unit. The unit is supplied with a matching audio plug fitting from what should be standard, for a simple plug and play* installation.

Please read the fitment notes (if any) assigned to this product as we try to advise as many points and possibilities as we can. The fitment guide is given as a guide only. Each vehicle may have a variation so please make sure you've checked everything to be sure the product will be suitable.


  • ​BMW 5 Series E39 (1996 - 2003)
  • ​BMW X5 E53 (2000 - 2007)
  • BMW 7 Series E38 (1995 - 2001)
  • Range Rover L322 (2002 - 2004 *BMW Build Only*)

PANEL SIZE: Top Width 285mm x Height 120mm x Bottom Width 285mm

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The fitment guide is given as a guide only. We strongly recommend you double check the shape and dimensions against your application before purchase as some models on our fitment list do have different shape stereo's fitted from factory.


1. If you have the original BMW or Range Rover Navigation system, you won't have the standard BMW audio plugs going into the BMW head-unit. You will have a 12 pin blue and white plug system. You will have a navigation box in the boot of the car (usually concealed into the rear quarter). You will find the original stereo plug going into the navigation box. In this case, you will need to purchase our extension kit to wire up this unit (part number UGE-EXL005). This extension cable plugs into the standard audio connection in the boot and then runs up the car to be located behind the new replacement stereo. You will also need to extend the aerial fitting (part number UGE-ANT001). Both extension cables are sold separately.

2. If you have the DSP amplifier also, you have three options:

A) Buy our DSP Retention module adaptor - Part No# JES-DSPAMP - This retains the original DSP sound system.

B) Re-wire the speakers directly to the head unit (Please Note: This will only retain a maximum of 8 speakers)

C) Buy a new amplifier and re-wire the speakers to this.

3. If you have the available stereo space but you have a single DIN radio with the heater controls below it then you will need to buy the heater controls relocation kit (unfortunately we do not sell - BMW dealer only). This will move the heater controls down into a lower position and allow the fitment of our unit.

4. If you have the HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning system) A/C pipes or the component bulge, then the unit will NOT fit due to the HVAC system behind the dashboard. The factory stereo's chassis tend to be shaped to avoid the pipes and/or bulge. This is an indication if you would suffer from a new head unit fowling onto the pipes and/or bulge. 

5. BMW 5 Series, BMW X5 & Range Rover L322 Models with the Business CD factory fitted radio will need the frame behind the stereo to be modified in order to fit a new head unit into the aperture.
