            BUMP.... sorry to bring back an old thread but im in need of serious help.

            I am in the process of relocating my stock business cd player head unit into the glove box... the wire harness does not come from the glove box but instead somewhere from the center console. I dont mind extending the wire but how or where can i get the radio antenna extension. I have an 2000 model cd player that supports two antenna system. I have search many forums yet no luck. shed some light here plz

                you can find those antenna extensions on ebay...just do a search for "bmw antenna adapter"...I relocated my headunit last week for my car pc setup...works great...got am, fm, ipod, OEM aux( for the car pc ), and cd...and volume control on steerting works perfect as well...i ll have my work log pics up fairly soon...did everything without cutting a single factory wire...well 1...had to extend the CD changer wire so I can use my OEM ipod kit but it was a breeze!

                  Bump on the work log....
                  I am doing this with my X5. I don't understand why more people don't do this actually. You keep the OEM sound ,the OEM steering wheel controls and extending the wire harness seems straightforward, with the ability to return to stock
