Chap on Evilbay DE do a conversion lead from old to new type E39 radio, or vice versa if you're having trouble sourcing the correct replacement radio type.

Nice Find mate, just under £30 with the postage (not bad).

On the other hand, if you get 1 each of these;

You could make one yourself for less than £17.

Just a thought.

Nice thought.

If you had one of the conversion leads, or details of any crossovers, you could do what you suggest.

Unfortunately, I don't have that information.

I've sourced a flat pin radio, but if I couldn't and HAD purchased the conversion lead, I would have posted the details.

If you have such info, post it here please.

regards,
Bill

Hi Boys,
I bought one of these harness adapters, and successfully converted my car harness from the newer style, flat pin connector, to the older style, round pin. The adapter only had the connections for the large round pins though, and so I had no sound from my CD multi changer in the boot. Everything else worked fine, even the steering wheel functions, which seems contrary to some postings on this site. After reading this posting and seeing the pin identifications of the small block of pins, I was able to connect the 2 out of 3 wires on the small white plug connector, left spare on my car harness plug, to the back of my replacement stereo. Everything works fine, and I'm quietly chuffed for fixing the problem myself, without going to BMW. I've even wired up my hands-free phone unit Mute button now too, as the pin location was identified also. I love this website :arrow: :D
