Hello

I really want to go back to the symphony radio as it makes the dash look better,

But I like my MP3 Cds, Does any one know if here is any thing I can do.

Or does any of the BMW radios fit and work that play MP3 cds?
:cool:

Have a word with Juergen. He has a Symphony and has built an MP3 adapter inside the unit!!

Cool

I did see in Halfrauds some type of conncetion kit to enable an iPod to be used, and on display was a Symphony HU. Not what you're looking for granted, but perhaps an option?

There is a new kenwood Double Din unit out which I'm eying up....

http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=4923

Ok, looks not the same, but its double din and it plays MP3s and has a USB socket! lol :)
Will a double din unit actually fit a 75? It just looks slightly less than a double in my facelift but a unit like that would look better than having the pointless little cuby thing it has now.

All the original 75 ICE is double din.

But there doesn't appear to be a ready made adapter to get it secured in there... So you'd have to get one made for double din.

Alex, Have you got one of those offset adaptors from Halfordds / Autoleads. Maybe a genuine one greatly in prove the look at a fraction of the price
Cheers

Don't think so, the aperture is a size and shape specific to the 75...
Besides, I've got a lovely Kenwood KDC 9590 and 10 disk changer sitting at home doing nothing... :dddc:

would the sat nav screen work just as a radio at all?

If i were to put it into my car?

Just thinking?

Hi Alex - long time no speak!

The sat nav screen has no internals, it's just a monitor & tape player. The radio tuner & amp are separate modules mounted in the boot. Why not retro-fit sat nav as your next project???

(New front looks fantastic, by the way...)
