What leads would I need to put a 3rd party radio in does anyone know? Or is the NAV unit running off standard ISO?
You can *split the harness behind the dash so that you have standard ISO (or a BMW connector on early ones) connections. You will have to go digging for it - it's a "bypass" iso plug and socket arrangement that meant they could use one harness for highline/lowline. Lowline cars used a more standard ISO setup and ordinary headunit instead of the BMW
lash up superior engineering.
* by split I mean you can just unplug the bit you need and plug into the new stereo.
That's the easy bit.
Harder bit is running an aerial extension from the boot - or fitting a different aerial.
Oh, and getting the steering wheel controls working on an aftermarket radio of course
