Default BMW system upgrade

Hello can anyone help, Jules is trying to fit this system to my 2004 tourer.

Need to know if I need an adapter...the Rover miniature plugs are 10 pin the BMW plugs are 12 pin.

We need someone on the 75 FB groups who has done this conversion before


.also Jules is asking
We need to know which bank of 8 the brown ISO connects to and which bank of 8 the Grey Iso goes to ?

Any help much appreciated.

Paul

Thank you very much Stocktake.

The Ebay adapter works well, but you will find that the BM54 is slightly too big for the original Rover metal radio cage. I think some people cut the original cage to make it fit. Mine at the moment sits on the spare wheel. There's a little enterprise for someone to make up cages which fit the BM54 into the R75. Let me know if you find anyone to complete the entire satnav hiline retrofit. A few members have done it and do offer help online. Would be great if someone offered this service commercially.

Would be interesting to know in your link where the bracket that houses the BM54 came from. I wasn't aware that later cars had a different radio bracket? Someone with a facelift tourer maybe can confirm if their radio bracket will house the BM54? Or did it come from a different car?
