In the process of getting everything together to upgrade my audio from the stock Bose on my 2011 3.

Still a little while from getting the door speakers, dynamat and wiring. Figured I'd go ahead and install the HU, a Pioneer x5700BHS.

After reading and finding out that the stock Bose amp needs line level input, I soldered on some RCA's and made my connection that way.

I can honestly say, the sound is much better with the new HU. I don't know if it's the HD stations ( they do sound better than SD ), but I'm actually pretty happy with it.

I ordered the MicroBypass and a new kit, Scoshe - not happy with the fit of the Metra. Alot of my functions are greyed out since I didn't hook up the parking brake wire.

Bose isn't totally unacceptable.
