This adaptor has both types of connections for your vehicle so no more having to remove your stereo first to see what connection you have before you purchase the item. A lot of BMW models have either Round pin or Flat pin but this has both. Just purchase the item and use the lead you require and discard the one you don't.
This adaptor will convert the non din-sized aperture left after removing the factory stereo to a din size ready for head unit installation. The high quality finish, colour and texture are designed specifically to maintain the original look of your vehicles interior.
Steering Wheel Interface
A stalk/steering wheel control adaptor allows you to upgrade to an aftermarket head unit whilst maintaining use of your factory steering wheel controls or fitted on a stalk next to the steering wheel.
An Aerial Adaptor is needed when replacing the original factory fitted head unit with an aftermarket head unit.
CTMULTILEAD.2 Universal Patch Lead
Patch Lead connects a compatible car stereo with a joystick input (blue line-in mini-jack) or wire input on the back of the unit to the existing stalk/steering wheel controls of the vehicle.
