    1998 BMW 316 head unit


    i have recently recieved a head unit from a 1998 BMW 316 series, but cant find any information on the pinout, and would like to put this in another car.

    it has eurovox model #: 8690B on it.

    see pics:

    if you have any idea, plese let me know.

    i have been trawling this site for months, and do realise this isnt a specific car audio site, but i thought i may as well ask here before joining other specific sites.

    I'll tell you that the rectangular white connector is power input and audio signal output (to speakers or external amp). The small round connector is for the CD changer connection - data in and out and audio signal in. I couldn't find a diagram to help you on this one. If you had the harness from the car, you'd have more information - the wire colors - which I might be able to get you some info on.

    I'd try your question on a radio install forum, or maybe a BMW forum.

    Good Luck.
