It seems that I have a weakness towards head units that will look and act great inside a BMW E36. I’m sure that by now, every BMW E36 owner here knows that if you don’t like the original BMW head unit or you just need a little bit more options inside your head unit, that you will have to sacrifice the look of the car to get these options. In my "quest" to find the best head unit for the BMW E36, I wrote about the Bluetooth Ready Headunits For Your BMW and the Bluetooth Ready Headunits For Your BMW . . . Revisited! which were very good choices indeed. The problem with all these great head units was that they will not fit into your dashboard 100%. It will always look a little bit different than its surroundings.

Today, I’ve found a new head unit which is the Blaupunkt Bahamas MP46. This unit is great and will blend nicely inside your BMW E36. Take a look at these photos of the head unit:


Now for the best part. This head unit can be set to illuminate amber which will match your BMW dash 100%. I saw a picture of this head unit with the Amber color somewhere, but now, I can’t find it. Sorry about this guys, if you saw that photo, you would know what I’m talking about.

    Yep, this is absolutely the best head unit radio if you want it to match your dash. I’ve been looking around for something like that and I found this! I will be getting it soon. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the sound quality, features, etc. The only downside that I’ve heard, and as you can see, is the remote is a little weak (so few buttons…).

    @Anthony: Yes, but I think that it’s better for the head unit remote to be simple. I have a Sony Xplod remote and I think it’s complicated. The idea “I think” behind the remote is to control the head unit without looking. Complicated remote controls simply make this task impossible.

    Hi Hicham,

    Thank you for posting this, but this is not the amber i was refering to. That amber is very close to orange instead of pink. Just like the BMW E36 dash lights.

    @Tony:Ok I guess that makes sense. But still, a few more buttons wouldn’t hurt ;-). Oh and, here are the pictures of how it looks like in a BMW…
