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 3 Series E46 (1998 - 2005)
  • BMW M3 E46 (1998 - 2005)

PANEL SIZE: Top Width 248mm x Height 118mm X Bottom Width 246mm

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.
