BMW Z4 and Pioneer DEH-P88RSII


Our customer came to the store looking for a high quality audio solution for his new BMW Z4. Sound quality was key but it also had to look good and be easy to opperate an ipod from.

When I said to use the Pioneer my customer informed me he’d already been told by another dealer that it wouldn’t be possible to get the steering wheel controls to work with any radio-something I doubted and after a little research I found a lead that’d do the job. With that out of the way we were able to select a stereo. I recommended the DEH-P88RSII. It is a Sound Quality focused CD/MP3/WMA/AAC/WAV player with built in AUTO EQ and TIME ALIGNMENT enabling it to coax even your standard speakers into producing some awsome sounds!

The next issue we had to overcome was the dashboard. The BMW Z4 has a custom built radio in it so it needs a panel to replace it in order to fit the DIN sized Pioneer in there. This isn’t normally a problem as a panel is readily available-however the colour was wrong!  Fortunatley my engineer, Sud, is a dab hand with a can of spray paint (misspent youth?) and was able to colour code the panel to match the interior plastics. You can see the result below:
