Great Product & Great Service – Installed the XAV-AX100 in an E46 BMW. Installation was straightforward and greatly aided by the YouTube video. The unit works really well, especially the Apple CarPlay. The equalizer function is also very powerful. The hardware seems to be well made. Steering wheel controls and Bluetooth phone functions work well. We had one question during installation. I called Enfig and got it sorted in about 2 minutes. Thanks guys!

Fast and easy – I’ve been looking to upgrade the headunit in my e46 for a while now and stumbled across Enfig via YouTube. There are a lot of options out there for my car but I decided to go with this kit because it looked quality and had the best options. I am extremely happy I finally went ahead and bought it. The stereo is great, and all of the hardware enfig provides works perfectly. If you are looking to upgrade your e46 like I was, this kit is for you.

Simple, Fast, Easy – I love my E46, I love looking at it, and I love driving it. However listening to music in my E46 always felt like a chore. The OEM stereo while fine for its time is extremely dated and lacks modern convienences that we have become accustomed to. I implemented solutions like installing an Auxiliary cable, and Bluetooth adapters, but always felt kind of jealous when I was in one of my friends newer cars with fancy infotainment systems. So I decided it was time for an upgrade.
Enfig provided the tools and know how to easily install this Sony headhnit in my car. It only took about an hour and the video instructions were easy to follow. Now I have android auto and Apple CarPlay in my e46. Now people can get jealous when they see my new setup. Great products, fast service, and great instructions. You can’t ask for anything else. If you are on the fence about buying this, do it! You won’t regret it!

Wow – New car features in my favorite ride! – My son found this kit for me with encouragement from my wife.
I’ve had my 2002 M3 convertible for 16 years and it’s a blast to drive, but I found myself noticing more and more in recent years how well the new car stereos integrate with my iPhone when I’m on a business trip. I’d miss driving my car on the trips, but the stereo and speakerphone options were really nice.
We found Christian’s YouTube video instructions for this Sony XAV-AX100 unit and were convinced it was a perfect upgrade for my M3. We received the “kit” package for E46 and installed it the same night. We had one small question that Christian, “the guy in the video,” cleared up for us within the first 2 minutes of our phone call. He said he would re-label the wire in question more clearly after hearing about our confusion.
A great guy to talk to and the unit … with enfig’s custom wiring harness and brackets … was amazingly easy to install and looks like original equipment.
Love it .

Sony Stereo – I got the Sony XAV-AX5000 to replace my old stereo, and just give my car a general upgrade. Enfig made the install very simple and very quick, especially with their youtube videos online. I watched the video provided online and followed everything he did step by step. I had a small issue in the beginning, but it was nothing Christian couldn’t help me with. I gave him a call and he helped me within minutes. If you are debating between a stereo from Enfig and a stereo from some other company, I would highly recommend going with Enfig. Their customer service was awesome and the stereo itself was basically plug and play. I would definitely recommend their products and services to a friend or to anyone wondering what they should do.
Super helpful – I purchased a Sony kit for my 2001 BMW 330i. I made a mistake during install and did not have any sound coming from the speakers. I emailed Enfig, and they got back to me right away, and quickly identified the problem. Thank you!
Works well – It worked on my 1999 E46 328i. The connectors and brackets were easy enough to figure out. The YouTube video was really helpful. It was not mentioned in it but you have to connect Antenna wires (blue) together.
I actually made a mistake when I ordered 1 button kit vs. 5 buttons. Mine was 5 buttons even though it looked 1 button. If there is a slit right beside a button (my case ASC), yours needs 5 buttons. (I ended up crafting a lid.) I guess 1st gen of E46 needs 5 buttons.
Overall, I’m really satisfied and glad I got this kit installed, SONY radio sounds great even my old speaker system (non HK), it is day-n-night difference from the original CD player radio.

Great radio – It’s a great radio and was very easy to install into my bmw e46. It’s cool cause now I got apple CarPlay in my car
karl brandenburg –
Sony install. 2004 e46. – Awesome. Very easy install and the radio works great. Great value for the money. Great quality wiring harness and trouble free connections. Thanks
Marcus Funk –
Great – It was a great experience it took like 4 hours but it was a semi easy installation but when you put in your radio make sure to hook up the parking brack (either ground it or actually find a way to hook it to the parking brake) because I didnt and I couldn’t play video so I couldn’t make maps come on the radio screen anyway this was a great kit I just wish the panel tools came with the kit
C. Smith –
E46 Upgrade – Great kit of wiring harnesses and trim pieces. Excellent upgrade to the e46.

BMW E46 Stereo and install kit – I rarely give 5 stars but this company, it’s kit for my E46 and it’s employees are all above reproach. I will be going to them again to outfit the rest of my BMW fleet.
Steven Booth –
Sony AV1000 Kit is awesome! – Recently bought 2002 330ci and the factory HK stereo needed help. Tried the iPhone kit but decided to change the unit completely. Christian is fantastic and helped with questions and returning the iPhone kit. I bought the Sony AV1000 kit put together by Enfig. Watched the installed video Christian did and mine went just like the video. Simple. And WOW its great. All connectors fit and it’s sounds great!
Awesome service and product solution for an old car. Thanks!
Mike Chu –
A new unit for my BMW – Really happy I came upon Christian’s Youtube video for the E46 installation kit. It was pretty easy to install and I couldn’t be more happier with the Sony versus a Chinese brand that most forums have a love/hate review about them. The Sony 5000 unit is just beautiful installed and everything works smoothly. It even looks oem! I would definitely recommend this to any BMW owner looking for a head-unit replacement.
craig mason –
Enfig is awesome – Enfig is awesome. I called about the install for my xav unit and Christian was very informative and helpful. Awesome. I ordered the unit and associated harnesses, to my surprise it arrived the next day. Again, awesome. After watching his video on youtube, I tackled the install. The video made everything so simple to install. More Awesome. The wiring harness fit perfectly and the radio was a perfect fit. Doesn’t get any more awesome. Thanks Christian!

Great Products – Would definitely buy again!

Worked like a charm! – Great product and I received it very quick. Would highly recommend.

Great Carplay Solution for e46 – I purchased the XAV-AV5000 + installation kit for a 2002 325ci coupe that had the original business CD head unit. It works great, is very clean, and I love the ability to customize the steering wheel buttons.
There was one hiccup as it wasn’t clear which wire I connect the amplifier ON wire to in the harness. I figured it out, but maybe the installation video could be updated for the XAV-AV5000 system.
All in all, I highly recommend this setup for your e46 BMW. The Sony head unit is simple to use, Carplay works great, and the Enfig harnesses simplify the installation.
Christian Torres –
Amazing – Awesome Kit! Plug and play without any hassle. The stereo is fantastic and modernized my BMW with the touch screen head unit. Would recommend this product for any e46 owners!
Hunter Coates –
XAV-AV5000 BMW 3 – Great product and timely shipment! Instructions and install video were spot on. Highly recommended

Finally! Carplay for my E46 – I spent over six months researching the best way to get a modern head unit into my 330ci with nav. I read countless forum postings, considered the pluses and minuses of various Chinese Android devices, but I couldn’t see putting that much money into something made by a company that nobody outside of the E46 cult had ever heard of.
I looked at the Enfig kits a couple of times, but there was no install video for a car like mine with nav. So I finally decided to bite the bullet and have a local installer put it in for me. I’ve done easy installs in my Miata and Mercedes 280CE, but I didn’t like the idea of running a cable all the way from behind the dash to the trunk.
Long story short, I couldn’t be happier. The installer complimented the design of the kit, the look is perfect, completely factory. All the steering wheel controls work perfectly. And it’s a Sony! Five stars.
Michael Chen –
Super thorough kit for E46. – I’ve installed quite a few double din head units into a variety of vehicles (Nissan, Honda, Mercedes, BMW, etc.) When shopping for a head unit for the E46, I came across Enfig and realized they had a complete solution that required no wiring.
This has literally got to be the most complete, well-thought-out kit on the market for the E46. From the 3D-printed mic that fits in the OEM location to the inclusion of every cable needed (including both styles of radio antennas), this was a plug-and-play affair. The YouTube videos answered any questions I had about pulling some of the pieces apart and made it so easy (2 hours R&R).
I really appreciate what you guys have done here and have recommended it to many of my fellow E46 enthusiasts who don’t want to fumble around with those buggy Android head units. I can’t believe you guys can include all of these pieces at the price point (literally the same as the MSRP of the unit), and it represents an incredible value.
Best install kit I’ve ever experienced – I ordered my kit on March 28th and it arrived April first, so quick shipping already started things off right. Needed a way to spend time while on quarantine, so I decided to take this on yesterday. Figured it would take all day. It honestly was done in under 4 hours including pulling all necessary interior pieces and running the wires alongside the factory loom so as to be a professional looking install. I’ve have never experienced such a complete kit.
Everything is plug and play, even the mic location. I went with the xav-ax7000 and I’m very happy with my decision. Also shout out to Christian for explaining to me UPS My Choice to make sure I got my package quickly and without having to worry about curbside theft. Honestly the best stereo install kit I have ever dealt with, and I’m a technician so I’ve seen my fair share of botch jobs.

Happy customer – Installed Sony setup for my son in his BMW and he loves it everything fit well and hooked seamlessly just finishing it off with a backup camera
Mickey Ohland –
Great Service – Ordered the Sony XAV-5000 for my BMW. Christian was very helpful with my order. He even called me to let me know my radio was being shipped the same day I ordered it. Excellent product and customer service. Would definitely buy from Enfig again.

Perfect kit! – This kit worked out exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. We stumbled upon Enfig through a you tube search looking for stereo options for our Company owned E46. We’ll be in touch for any future car stereo projects.

How easy Enfig makes an install – I’ve been looking for a simple, inexpensive solution to upgrade the radio in my ‘99 BMW 3 series e46 for a while now. To be honest, I have found a lot of expensive options to get the features I want in my sedan, but it’s hard to justify spending the money on a 21 year old but very dependable car. In marched Enfig with a kit that not only gave me an upgrade, but all the parts and pieces I needed to make use of the OEM features of the car AND get Bluetooth, CarPlay (iPhone geek) and rocking sound to replace my business class CD player. Plus videos to make the install go smoothly.
If you’re in the market to add quality aftermarket hardware to your older vehicle for a fraction of the cost at a big box store, and if you’re a DIYer who has a little know how and can follow instructions, Enfig is your final stop. I love my new Sony XAV5000 and it looks and sounds awesome.
Thanks so much Enfig!
M3 driver –
Excellent – Excellent! Actually got the Alpine unit and just finished installing with the Enfig kit in an e46 m3. Lots of well thought out harness and adapters. Looks great and everything works! Couldn’t be happier. Thanks guys!
Roman Alexandroff –
Great producr – I have recently ordered Pioneer headunit as well as An adapter for BMW e46 M3 Factory harness. The product arrived quickly, Enfig Stereo was very responsive to my questions during the placement of the order. I highly recommend them
Christopher Jochum –
Responsive support and great products – I had originally gone with a android based unit that never worked as advertised. As I struggled with with that I came across Enfig and Christian who answered numerous questions patiently. I order the Sony XAV-AX5000 and everything worked and fit beautifully. I would have saved myself a lot of time and frustration if I had went with this solution originally. Top tier service and products and I would highly recommend Enfig to anyone looking for a car stereo solution.
Marshaun Khan-Assian –
Sony XAV-AX5000 – Everything came as advertised. The videos online walked me through the entire process. This was my first time trying to install a head unit. It went smooth and was completed in about 2 1/2 hrs. I would definitely recommend them, also they were very helpful with answering questions during the ordering process.
Cordell Riley –
Spot on!!!!! Great Service – Order a radio and install kit for my BMW. Receive all the parts very quickly. Needed some extra help during the install, Chris jumped on the phone and sent me in the right direction.
Radio is in and I love it!!!
Randy Salamon –
Absolutely worth it! – I purchased a stereo and install kit for my BMW e46 after seeing the Enfig install videos on youtube. The whole installation was as easy as the video shows. I would absolutely recommend Enfig and their products. Any and all questions were answered quickly and with expertise. Five Stars!
Great kit – Bought this as a Christmas gift for my son and couldn’t be happier. The video instructions were great and the install was a breeze. I have installed probably a dozen car stereos over the years and this has to be the easiest. The head unit works great. Very plug and play.
ROBERT FENN –
BMW complete installation kit – Everything fit exceptionally well. The YouTube videos were a informative, well done and made the installation easy. The whole package was a great value. I would highly recommend.
Edgar Souder –
Car stereo installp – I have a single din stock radio in my 2004 bmw. I wanted a double radio which I didn’t think was possible. Thanks to Christian and Enfig I installed a awesome stereo. I found a excellent video on how to install this with the help of their parts. Excellent video and advice.
Marichal Charity –
Fantastic – I have a bmw e46 and it was a very simple install. The kit had everything I needed and this double din radio looks great, way better than the oem single din.
Bill Weldon –
BMW Must Have Upgrade – While doing extensive research on how I would upgrade the radio in my BMW E46,I came across a video on YouTube done by Enfig car stereo showing an upgrade kit they offer and how to install.By the time I was done watching the video,I was convinced to purchase the installation kit from them including the radio.The install was very straight forward and fit the way it should.
Thank you for offering an upgrade solution BMW would be proud of.
