I tried doing this with an Alpine CDA-9855 with no luck. Decided I didn't want FM radio that badly and just got XM .
Next on the list is to add an AudioControl Overdrive line driver, new speakers, new amp, new sub, and figure out a way to put in a Parrot CK3100 bluetooth kit for my Treo650 (won't work with PhoneControl unfortunately). I'm thinking about having BavarianSoundWerks here in Atlanta do the speakers/amps, they seem to know their stuff when it comes to E46s. I sold my stock Nav/GPS equipment on eBay, and will do the same for the stock HK speakers when they come out, to pay for the new speakers/amps.
The problem I'm working on now is getting the XM radio to work from a USB port rather than serial (IBus adapter uses the serial port). Searching for a serial to USB adapter, hopefully it will allow XM to work on resume from standby/hibernate - my other USB components do, so I'm optimistic.
What shutdown controller are you using? It is for sale and how much? Thanks.Originally Posted by Hark
