Hi Guys,

need your help with my restoration. I am looking to install a new radio and sound system in my E9. I bought the car with a missing radio however it had wiring for speakers.

I am not sure what these cables are, but i think they could be for the radio, can anyone confirm?

Perhaps a better idea would to put a volt/ohm meter on the relevant calbles first rather than just connecting up an expensive headunit first.
From experience,
1.the switched cable will only support modest current draw so dont go wiring in a unit that requires a large current.
2. The earth again will only support modest currents.
If you are going to wire in a comprehensive audio system you will need to upgrade the whole circuit.
