2005 BMW 530i

Recommended Posts

My uncle got a BMW 530i for my cousin. Are there any after market stereos that will still look factory. I saw some one remove the whole system and put a newer model(factory 2010 BMW system). But it's at least $1000. I'm just looking for a single din that won't take away any factory functions. I may need to run two systems(the factory system without touching it, and a single din separate from the factory system). Any help u can give me on a after market radio for this car would help.

 

Heres a thread with the exact same stereo. he left everything completely stock(just upgraded)

Somebody told me I need to remove the whole entire backseat & rear deck lid to do the rear speakers. But I hope not.

crutchfield & sonicelectronix are saying 5.25" speakers in the front and rear. But I know now the fronts are not 5.25" speakers. The front doors were 4" speakers. I don't think the rear speakers are 5.25" either. I'm going to try and remove the rear decklid speaker grills. And find out if they're 5.25" or 4" speakers.

Replaced the speakers in the rear deck lid with 4" Rockford primes. He likes the new headunit with all new speakers. May be thinking about a 10" subwoofer

did you have to remove the back seat
